The next strike dates for Royal Mail are 9th, 11th, 14th and 15th December. The last guaranteed Christmas delivery posting date is the 16th December. I will be posting as normally as I can, but please be aware that there will be delays in the speed your orders get to you around the strike dates. If you need something urgently, please get in touch and we can look at using a courier instead.


I am so pleased to announce that I am now an official affiliate here in the UK for Ester Roi's Icarus Drawing and Painting Boards. 


The basic principle of these boards is to provide a heated surface on which a wax-based medium can melt. This makes them fantastic for working with wax-based pencils, for example, Prismacolor Premier and Caran d'Ache Luminance.


As an affiliate, if you contact Ester through her website, quoting one of my unique discount codes given below, you will be able to save money on your purchase. All information on each board and their individual characteristics can be found on her website.


How it works:

If you are outside the USA and want to order an Icarus Board, please send Ester and her team an email through her website, asking for a quote that includes delivery charges. Please tell them your address, phone number, which model you would like, and the appropriate discount code given below. You will then be sent a PayPal invoice. You do not need a PayPal account and they accept all credit cards.
