From Phoenix to Frankfurt--Dynasty Hits the Road!

We had so much fun at the Creativation trade show last week! Thank you to all of you who stopped by our booth to paint art journals with Dynasty Artists Deb Antonick, Jill Fitzhenry, and Annamarie Oke! Be sure to check out our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages for photos from the whole convention.

While in Phoenix we also debuted our new Water Lily line of watercolor brushes--available to the public later this year. 

Now we are on our way to Frankfurt, Germany for Creativeworld international trade show and we are bringing with us our new Kalel Quill brushes-- we can't wait to see you there!

Join us at Creativeworld 2020!

Join us in Germany January 25-28, 2020 for Creativeworld--the world's largest arts/crafts/DIY trade show! 

This is Dynasty/FM Brush's 22nd year attending this important event. Since 1998 we have been exhibiting at Creativeworld for the opportunity to meet artists, retailers, and vendors from all over the world! Representatives from both our US and Thailand factories will be at our booth this year to engage visitors and to introduce Dynasty products to the global market. We will have some new products to share with you including the Water Lily line of watercolor brushes. This innovative synthetic line features 55 different brushes each which offer a softer more natural flex than other similar brushes currently on the market. 

We are also offering our new Kalel Quill into competition for the Creative Impulse Innovation Award which is the most important award in the worldwide arts and craft product industry. Our new Kalel Quill combines our classic quill design with the most advanced brush fibre on the market, making the Kalel Quill a traditional yet innovative addition to your studio practice. 

If you are attending Creativeworld, come see us in Hall 4.1 Stand J31--we'd love to meet you!

And for those of you who are state-side, next week we will be in Phoenix, AZ for Creativation! Go to our Facebook event page for info about who will be joining us at our booth and what you can make with us! 

PS: The Water Lily line of brushes and the Kalel Quill are so new that they aren't event on our website yet, so stay tuned for more updates about these state-of-the-art products!

Celebrating 90 Years of Tradition

As the year comes to a close, our thoughts tend to turn to special holiday time spent with friends and family. FM Brush Company was started in 1929 by Frederick G. Mink and has the distinction of being the only family-run brush manufacturer in America. The Mink family has a lot to celebrate as 2019 marks their 90th year in the brush manufacturing business. 

Frederick G. Mink, founder
For nine decades FM Brush Company has remained committed to creating handmade brushes of the highest quality while providing exceptional service. Four generations of the Mink family have dedicated themselves to upholding the standards of excellence established by Fred. Many members of the Mink family are with the company today including current company President and CEO Jeff Mink, Vice President of Sales Gregory Mink, Director of Operations Michael Mink, and Director of Cosmetic & Retail Sales Jacqueline Mink. 

Jackie had this to say about her role in the company:

"I am proud to be a part of FM Brush. We make the brushes that become the extension of the artists, creating works of art, from canvas to face. It is an honor to work with family carrying on the traditions of artist quality brush making, started by my great grandfather all those years ago." 
Former FM Brush Presidents Frederick V. Mink (L) & Frederick S. Mink (R)

We end 2019 proud of all the company has accomplished over these 90 years, and we are looking forward to what the future brings. From all of us at Dynasty and FM Brush, we wish you a joyous holiday season!
