Gearing up for Creativation+: Get to know Dynasty Black Gold FAN-Dango

As you know, the events of 2020 made us rethink how we can gather safely. Lots of in-person events that Dynasty and FM Brush Company regularly attend were cancelled. Although we missed seeing you in person last year, we look forward to interacting with you safely at virtual events this year! First up is Creativation+, a combined virtual event with AFCI Creativation and NAMTA taking place online March 15-19, 2021. Leading up to Creativation+ we will be resharing some of our favorite blog posts to help you get to know a variety of our products.

Let's revisit this post from 2019, in which Dynasty Brand Specialist Jill Fitzhenry shows us how to use the Black Gold 206FD is our patented FAN-dango brush... 


The blended multi-tapered synthetic bristles splay out in such a way that the FAN-Dango is the perfect tool for creating a lot of fine, flowing paint lines at once. Our Black Gold line of brushes can be used with oils, acrylics, and watercolors. Don't be afraid to experiment! Play with your brushes to discover what kinds of marks they make with thin paint and thick paint, with light pressure and with heavier pressure. Thank you to Barbara for the question about this brush and thanks to Jill for sharing her skills with us.

Don't forget--we have a whole YouTube channel with lots of how-to and demonstration videos. Be sure to subscribe! 

If you have a suggestion for the blog, please let us know! You can comment below or message us on FacebookInstagram, or Twitter. Until next time, Happy Painting!

Our New "Paint at Home" Video Series

 As we have learned over the last six months, life as we know it has changed. We are spending most of our time at home. And if you have kids in your life, chances are they may be doing a lot of their learning at home too. We have created the "Paint at Home" video series for our YouTube channel to help bridge the gap between art education in a traditional school setting and making art at home. 


Episode 1 features Dynasty Brand Specialist Jill Fitzhenry and her granddaughter Kylie working together to paint an inspirational wooden scroll cut-out. Painting techniques such as  basecoating and stenciling are great for developing hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills--and they are fun too!

Please click here for a complete list of supplies and materials needed for this project. 

More "Paint at Home" episodes are coming soon--follow our Facebook page and Instagram for details. In the meantime, we invite you to visit our complete archive of videos on YouTube

And as always, to learn more about all of our Dynasty brand brushes please visit our website.
