CATALYST BLADES & WEDGES
Not quite a brush. Not quite a palette knife. Catalyst tools are crafted from flexible silicone to allow artists a new form of expression. Available in two unique styles: Catalyst Wedges are ergonomically designed to fit in your hand allowing a direct interaction with your work. Catalyst Blades are mounted on artist brush handles offering a blend of tradition and innovation.
Designed for use with heavy-bodied paints, Catalyst is at home with oils, acrylics, and water-miscible oils. Because they are heat-resistant, they excel with encaustics. Artists are using them with plaster, clay, and even frosting. Made of FDA-approved silicone, Catalyst Blades and Wedges are great for food crafting.
Clean-up is a breeze with Catalyst Blades and Wedges. The silicone is easy to wipe clean and is solvent resistant. Clean up in most cases can be done with mild soap and water. Dried paint can be peeled off the silicone surface. Catalyst blades can even be separated from their wood handles for cleaning and easily replaced when dry.

Check out the new DOWNTOWN CREATIVE DISTRICT
The Downtown Creative District was formed by a group of Commercial Street business owners who noticed the many art opportunities available in downtown Salem. We grouped together to create a coordinated marketing plan to increase the awareness of the many art and cultural activities offered year-round in our community including classes, events, demonstrations, exhibits and more. It is our intention to attract and enhance downtown with art and culture in our urban area.
