Prices of Art Material In Singapore

  A few people have contacted me via my e-mail to ask about the prices of certain art materials sold in Singapore. For easy reference, I'm creating this page and will add to it when the opportunity arises.  Please note that this is a price guide only. I am not liable if there are any changes in the prices in the future. Unless otherwise stated, all prices are from Art Friend. I do hope that this page helps you and if it does, I'd appreciate a comment in the comment section below.  :)

  I will gradually add to the list, so keep this page bokmarked!

      1. If you happen to find a store that sells Achres or Stonehenge paper, I would love to know about it. hahaha

        It's insanely difficult to find artist quality paper in Singapore sold individually. I know Art Friend sells Fabriano, and Art Mark sells Bristol boards. Perhaps Derwent paper from Art Friend could be a substitute? Or do consider buying from Amazon.com or DickBlick.com

        I'm glad you find the information on my blog useful. :)

      2. When I went down to Straits Art, they had individual sheets there. Call them up to check for the prices. They have some variety. Very reasonably priced!

      3. Didn't know Straits Art had individual sheets. ^-^ That's great to hear, though. The shop owners are very nice. I'll pay them a visit soon.

        Thanks for the heads up. I appreciate it.

      5. Yes, Anon.

        All Art Friend branches now stock Arches paper. I'm currently still waiting for a full price list to come out and for stocks to be fully updated and put on their shelves before updating the price list.

        Thanks for the heads up, though. :)

    5. May I know where can I buy Krylon Workable Fixative?

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. I actually made a short product review of a Krylon UV Archival fixative here (you need to do some scrolling): http://www.everythingis-art.com/2013/11/art-product-reviews-1.html

        However, the Buona Vista branch of Art Friend has already relocated to Clementi. It officially opens on the 17th of January 2014. Art Friend has a variety of different types of fixatives so you might call the branch that you're going to to inquire about their stock before going down. Do Google "location of Art Friend Singapore" to see which Art Friend branch is closest to you, and for each branch's contact number.

        Hope this helps~

    9. Hi! Do you know where I could get Marie gouache paints in Singapore? I'm looking for it and I've heard from seniors that Art friend does not offer it. I'm urgently needing a few sets :x Thanks in advance for replying!

      1. I'm pretty sure Popular sells some. I'm not sure about the quality of Marie's gouache paints though.... Art Friend certainly *does* sell gouache paints; I would think they're of Derwent brand but I'm not too sure.... Give them a call.

        Or online stores like DickBlick.com or Amazon.com.. But since it's urgent, you might not want to wait for the shipping time.

        Try Straits Art Co.!

      Do you know which art supply shops sell watercolour pan? And what's the price range. Thanks!:)

    13. If my memory does not fail me, I would say that Straits Art Co sells watercolour pans. Their contact details is listed in this post: http://www.everythingis-art.com/2012/07/art-stores-in-singapore.html?m=1

      (I'm on mobile so if the link leads to nowhere, just google "art stores in Singapore". My website should be the first link listed and you'd be able to find the details just the same.)

      Otherwise, it'd be online stores like DickBlick.com or amazon and eBay.

        It's always better to call the stores to ask them whether they have a particular thing instead of spending the time travelling to them. :) Try the other stores listed above!

        Amazon UK sells it: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Faber-Castell-Perfection-Eraser-Double-Ended/dp/B000MQL0BU

    18. Hello, would like to know what brushes do you normally use for watercolour and their price range?

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. I'm not a professional watercolour artist. I usually use watercolours for background washes (a flat brush works for that), or to quickly colour in sketches or little illustrations (I use a brush that has a built-in water barrel for that).

        The price range of brushes depends on what kind of brushes you're looking for- synthetic (which are cheaper) to high-end sable brushes (I wouldn't recommend a newbie to buy those cause it's far too much initial investment and you would end up being afraid of using them anyhows). Price also depends on what sizes you're getting; and the size of the brushes you're getting depends on the size of the paper you want to work on.

        I recommend you thoroughly read the following Watercolour FAQ as it should answer most of your questions: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=450810

        And then, following that, you should probably make a trip down to an art store to see what kind of brushes you'd like and compare the prices. I really can't list out the prices for every single brush type, so you'd have to do your own research. Doesn't take much to give them a call!

        Hope that helps. Cheers. :)

      1. The last I checked was in November. There shouldn't be a huge price difference in just a couple of months, but I won't say EVERY SINGLE item on the list is EXACTLY the price that I've stated they are.

        This list is more of a price guide than a catalogue. I gain nothing from keeping the list up-to-date and use my own free time to update/add new things to the list. It's really just me wanting to help others.

        I hope it'd help you in some ways, though. And if you find an item whose prices have really dropped/increased, just let me know in the comments section, or via email. Thankies~ ^-^

      1. Hi Tanya!

        I'm not a watercolour artist so I don't really use proper watercolours. I prefer watercolour pencils as they give me more control over where the colours go, and I use them mainly to add colour to sketches in my sketchbook. Thus, I'm not the best person to ask for a comparison. However, luckily for us both, there are artists who use watercolour as their primary medium, and they know much much more about the medium than I do.

        Here's a link to the top 20 frequently asked questions about watercolour:
        http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=450810

        That being said, I've read that one tube of watercolour paint will last for a very long time and are very worth the money in the long run. Most professional artist will recommend buying a few tubes of artist grade watercolours instead of a full boxed set of student grade colours. The colours of artist grade paints are more vivid; they're more lightfast (will last longer); and you'll enjoy using them much more compared to student grade.

        If budget doesn't allow it, though (and also considering the fact that you're new to the medium and might end up not liking it after you've tried it) you could buy a set of artist grade watercolours first to try the medium. And then if you take a liking to watercolours, you can slowly swap out the student colours for artist ones. :)

        Here's an interesting link to know which colours you should get for a basic starting set:

        Hope that helps~

      2. Aside;
        The Wetcanvas site seems down right now. They're probably doing some maintenance... The link should work once the site gets back up (which should be soon). But if the link is still dead in one or two days, let me know and I'll find a new link to work around the issue.

    26. Hi stephanie, the post is very informative. I would like to ask if there's any art shop that might sell faber castell albrecht dürer water color pencils? I've looked through reviews & I really like the shades when water is added. But most shops sell faber castell water color pencils the parrot ones.

      1. I'm glad you found the post useful.

        Art Friend! But I'm only sure the Plaza Singapura branch stocks them. If you're visiting other branches, do call them to ask if they have them,
        They put them in the glass shelves so you'll have to ask a staff to open the shelf for you to be able to touch/take the product.
        They're on the pricier side, though. So please don't be shocked when you see the price of it.

        Let me know how it goes and whether you ended up purchasing them or another brand. :)

      2. P.S. I bought the set of 12 Polychromos, which is the non-watercolour version of Faber Castell's coloured pencil range... And I loved them. Supposedly, the added cost comes from making sure every single pencil is lightfast. So, you'll have to make your own choice of whether it's worth the money.

        There are alternatives out there. For example, Derwent has watercolour pencils too. (Art Friend stocks those as well.) I'll update the price list with Faber Castell's pencils when I get the chance to.

    27. Hey there! Thanks, this has been really helpful :)) but may I ask, do you know whether Art Friend sells turpentine??

      1. Hello Anon,

        I'm glad that you found the post helpful.

        Turpentine should be relatively easy to find. Please do call the Art Friend branch that you're visiting to check. And if you're feeling a little more hardworking, you can try calling a few of the other stores listed to see who sells the cheapest turpentine. :)

    28. Hi Stephanie! This is a great post and extremely helpful, especially because I had such a hard time looking for prices of art materials in Singapore and your post is one of the few that popped up. I'm visiting Singapore next week.

      Would you know where to find water-resistant drawing inks? Like the ones that Winsor&Newton has? http://www.winsornewton.com/row/shop/inks-and-drawing/drawing-inks

      Thank you!

      1. Hi Lorra,

        I'm so SO sorry that I missed your question and that I just noticed it....

        You're probably back in your home country now. Just for the record; Art Friend sells a large variety of inks. I hope you enjoyed your visit to Singapore.

        And to anyone else that might happen to read this reply; if you have a time-sensitive question, do send me an e-mail instead. I can be reached at stephanie_jennifer@ymail.com

        Again, Lorra, I'm sorry for having missed your question. ><

        Kind Regards,
        Stephanie

    29. Hi Stephanie!

      Thanks for this informative post! Any chance you'd know where to get Daler Rowney Layout Pads (45gsm) in Singapore? Didn't see them at Art Friend or Kinokuniya.

      Thanks!

      1. Hello Hazel!

        Daler Rowney's Layout Pard are definitely available at Art Friend. They come in A3 sizes (that I know of), and have a black cover. Perhaps you missed it when you visited the branch? Or that they were out of stock when you visited? In any case, give the branch a call before you visit to ask for stock availability. And if they really don't have stock (which I highly doubt will happen) check back here with me and I'll see whether I can find more info on the matter. :)

        You're welcome~

      1. Zig Clean Colour is listed in the post above. It's about $2 per pen. I'm not sure if they sell it in boxed sets.

      1. Hi there,
        Art Friend brought in some W&N pan sets a while ago. I've seen them at the Plaza Sing. branch. However, the selection seems quite limited. I bought my set of W&N Cotman half pans from Amazon.com.

        I've never seen Copic fine liners in colours before, so I can't really help you on that. Popular sells coloured varieties of Microns, so perhaps you'd like to look into that?

        You're welcome~ And hope I helped. ^-^

      1. A quick google search let me know that Arters sells them:

        Also, mayyybe Straits Art Co. too. They had plans on bringing them into Singapore, but I do not know for certain whether they have current available stocks.

        Frankly, for a sketchbook, I think one of the most important factor is availability... So I'd recommend you dropping by an art shop near you (Art Friend, perhaps?) They would have plenty of options to choose from.

        Thank you for your kind words too~ I really appreciate it. ^-^

      1. Hi there,

        I do not know the exact prices of one Prismacolor pencil. However, in sets, the prices are as follows:

        Prismacolor set of:
        12- $32 (at Art Mark)
        132- $324 (at Straits Art. Co)
        150- $365 (at Art Mark)

        So I would say it's SGD2 plus per pencil. Both Art Mark and Straits Art Co sell Prismas in open stock. Hope that helps.
