Great Art Gloves Protect Your hands
Breathable — no more sweaty hands. Hands remain cool, even in the hot sun. Polyurethane coated fingertips protect skin from solvents & chemicals. Super-comfortable, form-fitting stretchable nylon knit gloves can be washed in the washing machine. Excellent tactile sensitivity. Some UV protection for outdoor, plein air painting.
As we are just starting to sell these gloves, we don’t have any testimonials, so I’ll give one myself. I paint in both oil and soft pastel. Using these gloves, the pastel dust doesn’t dry out my hands. I cut off the tip of the pinky finger and use that for any blending. When the gloves get too dusty, I just wash them. It’s such a good feeling to take the gloves off and have clean hands!
As an oil painter, I’ve found that I can paint an entire plein air painting (2 hours or so of painting) using one or two paper towels to wipe off my brushes. In the past, I used many. The reason I can use so few, is that I can hold a Gamsol and paint-soaked paper towel in my left hand, without the solventm, medium, or paint touching my fingers. The polyurethane coated finger tips protect my fingers. In the past, the paper towel or rag would get too dirty to hold in a clean hand and need to be replaced with a clean paper towel — frequently. Those wonderful Viva towels are expensive and we all want to conserve paper and trees. These gloves do that. Clean up has become so much easier — the gloves get dirty, but my hands don’t. Although you can wash these gloves in the washing machine, I must note that the oil paint does not come off — the gloves are fully functional even when covered with paint.
