ZenART's Membership Plans Terms & Conditions

(Updates effective 17/08/2020)

These terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) govern the ZenART Supplies Rewards & Referral Plan as well as Subscribe & Save Plan (“Membership Plans”), and members of the programs will earn points in connection with the purchase of qualifying online products and online activities that are redeemable towards the purchase of certain products online.

2. EARNING POINTS

  • General Members can earn points on the purchase of qualifying online products at zenartsupplies.co. To receive points for your Online purchases, you must be signed into your account. You may check at any time to see if you are signed in to the Site by looking in the upper right-hand corner of the site. Gift cards do not qualify for points. Other products that do not qualify for points are noted on the Site.
  • Earning Rate. Members earn 5 points for every $1.00 spent on qualifying purchases (in other words, one (5) points for every one dollar ($1) spent). Points are based on your order subtotal, after any discounts, only. Points are rounded down to the nearest whole number. For example, if you spend $9.99, you will receive 9 points. The calculation is as follows: $9.99 x 1 points per dollar = 9.99 points, which is rounded down to 9 points. This program started on August 17, 2020, and initial levels were set on the 2020 amount spent on ordering products. Note: Shipping and Taxes are not taken into consideration. If an item is return and/or price adjusted that will also be removed from your rewards calculations.
  • Gift Cards. Gift card purchases are not eligible to receive points. However, once a gift card is redeemed, points will be awarded to the recipient for the subtotal after any gift card values, provided s/he is logged into the account, as outlined in these Terms and Conditions.

Any rewards discounts that are applied to the order, will be distributed equally to the applicable items in the order when completing a return. Points redeemed on an order will not be reapplied back to your rewards account for any reason on a returned order. If a return/cancellation will cause your account to have a negative point balance, you will not begin earning points again until your points balance is returned to zero (0), by making purchases, or engaging in other promotional activities offered from time to time. If an item is exchanged (different product) any redeemed rewards on the initial purchase may be transferred to the exchange one (1) time only. Rewards used on an order that is canceled cannot be reapplied as they are good for just one use.

Stories from real people, real artists. Read what they have to say about our fine art tools, designed by artists, for artists.

Gandee

I was given these as a gift. I usually only use Michael Harding, Windsor and Newton and other established brands but I was very pleasantly surprised at how consistent these paints were. They have a lovely rich buttery consistency and spread really well without having to use any mediums and have a lush texture. They are really nice paints to use.

Mrs J R Brayshaw

I have only recently discovered this company and they are brilliant. Excellent customer service, first class products and a very easy to use website. Most importantly they can't do enough for you, definitely a personal touch. I've found their ‘how to' videos very helpful too which have come directly to me by email, I will definitely shop with this company again.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean by non-toxic oil paints?

Non-toxic means we don't use any toxic ingredients in our paints. Toxicity, can come from the pigments themselves, and from the additives – dryers, fillers, plus the solvents and mediums you might use with the paint.

All our paints use non-toxic pigments that replicate the same qualities of traditional pigments, still remarkable, but not hazardous. We also don't use any toxic additives in our paints. We always recommend to use the non-toxic solvents and mediums if you need, and even have these recommendations in our Oil Color-Mixing Guide available to all our customers who bought ZenART Infinity series oil paints.

We strongly believe in this healthy approach to art, because your health and environmental safety is our highest concern.

What do I need to start painting with oil?

On top of your creativity and willingness to experiment, you'll need the following:

  • A professional brush set, like our Renoir and Artist's Choice Collections.
  • A professional oil paint set. Choose from our highly pigmented Infinity Series (Essential, Impressionist, Portrait Palettes)
  • A non-toxic solvent
  • An easel (or at least a chair with the back)
  • A primed stretched canvas or canvas board.
  • Cleaning materials like water, soap, rags and tissue.
  • Apron or painting clothes (optional but recommended
  • A well-ventilated place to paint.
Are these oil paint sets suitable for beginners?

Sure! Our Infinity Series of Professional Oil Paints are designed for all experience levels. Ardak Kassenova, professional artist and co-founder of ZenART created limited palettes of fundamental oil colors based on the colour palettes of old masters and contemporary artists who proved how with a limited palette of essential colors, one could create an outstanding work.

Considering the value for money we offer for such highly pigmented non-toxic oil paint sets, including guides, tutorials and advice, you'll make a significant gift for yourself or other artists, whether beginners to advanced and professionals.

Do I really need professional paint?

When it comes to art materials and tools, a famous saying among the artists and the art tutors is that ‘One should buy the best quality one can afford.' It's so true, especially for beginner artists, who are still building up confidence and knowledge of techniques. The best art tools will help accelerate progress and keep you motivated to paint and experiment with new techniques.

Professional-grade oil paints of Infinity series are highly pigmented, have more depth and produce a wider range of ‘clean' color-mixes, and as a result more vibrant painting. Our paints have same buttery consistency across different colors, which is also quite important, and makes the whole process of painting a breeze. You can use it wet-in-wet / alla-prima, without a fear of creating a ‘mud' on canvas. ZenART oil paints are great for impasto painting using stiff bristle brushes and/or palette knife, and retain the beautiful strokes of impasto technique. At the same time, being finely milled, they are easy to thin to the finest glazes without disintegrating and creating the unintended granulation.

Student-grade paints are usually of lower quality, less expensive and have far less pigment, and consist of pigments of lower quality, additives and fillers. This not only have different more flat consistency, but can cause ‘muddy' colors, unsatisfactory color-mixes, and overall disappointment.

We strongly believe, that especially at the beginning of your creative journey the quality of your tools and materials can play a crucial role in your progress and self-esteem. The high-quality tools and materials will become your best friends and extension of your creativity, whereas poor quality art supplies can cripple you, kill the joy of painting and even might contribute to the decision that art is not for you. Therefore, at ZenART we strive to bring the art supplies at the most affordable price, without any compromise in quality, plus equip you with the best advice and even tutorials for your progress.

Are these brushes suitable for beginners?

Yes! These brushes are high quality, and many professional artists praise them for their fantastic performance, thoughtful variety of shapes and sizes specifically designed for water-based media. When it comes to art materials and tools, a famous saying among the artists and the art tutors is that ‘One should buy the best quality one can afford.' It's so true, especially for beginner artists, who are still building up their confidence and knowledge of techniques. The best art tools will help accelerate progress and keep you motivated to paint and experiment with new techniques.

Considering the value for money we offer for such an extensive artist-quality set, including the guides, tutorials and advice, you'll make a significant long-term gift for yourself or other artists, whether beginners to advanced and professionals.

Can I mix ZenART oil paints with water or acrylic?

Definitely NOT. ZenART oil paints are traditional linseed oil-based paints, which means they are not mixable with water or water-based mediums. You can only use artists oil mediums: solvents for thinning the oil paint at the beginning of the painting process, linseed oil (or other artist oils) for subsequent layers. There are other mediums you can use, of course, that are a mix of solvent, oil and dammar or other resins, which are also made specifically for the traditional oil paints. Our co-founder Ardak Kassenova, a professional artist herself, sparingly uses any medium, as the consistency of our oils is very buttery and especially perfect for alla-prima technique.

How long does it take the oil paints to dry thoroughly?

ZenART oil paints dry faster due to the high-quality, acid-free linseed oil binder and proprietary process used. Ultimately, it depends on many variables (Average 12 hours to 3 weeks for safe handling)

  • The weather conditions. Is it damp, rainy or sunny?
  • Do you paint outside, with open windows or not?
  • The technique you used: Thick textured layers of paint like in impasto paintings will take the longest to dry.
  • Whichever technique you are using, please bear in mind the quintessential ‘fat over lean' rule – applicable to all oil painting work, to avoid cracking or flaking, and proper drying of the layers.
  • Pigments used, Burnt Umber, Raw and Burnt Sienna dry faster. The reds and whites generally dry slower. All the other pigments dry more or less at the same rate.
  • Oil paint dries from oxygenation, so the more exposure to oxygen, the quicker your painting will dry.
What if I am not happy with these oil paints?

We only want you to find the best fine art tools that you will enjoy using. If that's not us, don't fret. We offer a 1-year guarantee and 100% money-back for 60 days.
