The Best Procreate Brushes for iPad (Free & Premium Packs)

Procreate for iPad is a creative application for artists that makes use of the iPad’s sensitive display to draw directly on-screen. It’s becoming an increasingly popular tool with illustrator’s and letterers who enjoy being able to use traditional art techniques with handheld tools, without the disconnect between a graphics tablet and computer monitor. As with established software like Photoshop, Procreate incorporates brushes to simulate various media, such as paints, inks and pencils. There’s ...

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: 12 Petite Gifts from the Old Country (aka Europe)

One of the great joys of life is the pleasure of tiny fancy things. To an American, they’re especially satisfying amidst super-sized products and packs of multiples. Traveling through Europe earlier this year, I couldn’t seem to pass up another well-packaged lip balm at the pharmacy (I now have six—how American!) or a pint-sized brush for an oddly specific purpose or the perfect palm-sized box of matches with a French label. As a gift, they’re the sort of corner store purchase that might fall fl...

10 Easy Pieces: Remodelista Editors’ Favorite French Cleaning Tools

This past summer I spent a month in France unearthing all sorts of French secrets: What region makes the best butter? Where do the Provencal buy their pétanque sets? What do the Parisian’s use to clean their parquet floors? Where is everyone getting their shoes? Some questions were left unanswered; others I got to the bottom of. Some of my best discoveries, turns out, were found in the most typical of hardware and sundries stores. When it comes to cleaning, the French aren’t wielding harsh chemi...

Studio Visit: The Iris Hantverk Workshop in Stockholm, Sweden

When we first posted on the handmade brushes from Swedish company Iris Hantverk, it was 2008, and the brushes were hard to find in the US. Today, it seems every small design shop carries them (Iris Hantverk now sells to 890 stores worldwide) and they’ve become a common thread among design-minded friends. (Each of us at Remodelista, for example, has at least three Iris Hantverk brushes at home.) What we like about the brushes is their enduring design, traditional construction (hand-wired, not glu...

Domestic Science: Colorful Hand Brushes Inspired by the Shakers

One of our favorite exhibitions in recent years is Furnishing Utopia, a show of 14 design studios that each reinterpreted traditional Shaker furniture and objects. One designer, Montreal-based Zoë Mowat, studied Shaker brushes—their functions and materials—and designed her own colorful ash and horsehair hand brushes. They’re for sale in limited edition on her site; here’s a look. Above: Mowat’s “Brush Study” includes three different shapes of hand brushes. They’re made of natural horsehair an...

Holiday Gift Guide: 8 Gifts for the Domestic Set

“Is it weird to give someone a broom for Christmas?” I asked, half rhetorically, as we bought our friends a black hand broom and dustpan at a shop in LA last December. At Remodelista, it isn’t weird. In fact, it’s been the office holiday gift (computer brushes, dish brushes, tall brooms, short brooms) year after year. A glamorous, or glamorously priced, household cleaning tool isn’t something people generally like to spend money on, so it actually makes a great gift. Our friends loved it, and si...

Keep your makeup brushes in fighting shape with The Brush Bar and Avon!

All smart beauty lovers know that drying brushes with the bristles pointing up is a no-no - water seeps into the ferrule and loosens the glue that holds the bristles together. Up until now, the only other option was laying brushes flat which comes with it's own challenges - misshapen bristles and long drying times. Fortunately, there is now a better choice: The Brush Bar - $38 - a game-changing tool that solves all the frustrations of brush care thanks to a clever little case hous...
