    I guess we should start one! If I recall there is a papeteria in sosua off pedro clisante that has some supplies and then an office supply store on the hiway that we bought some stuff from once. It was 3 years ago so I do not remember the names but the one on the hiway was near(beside?) a liquor store just before the the turn off to tradewinds right, and the german bakery left

    That is what I thought as well. Lets start a art supply store. I am very interested to learn how Dominicans make art and what kind of materials they are using. I am doubting in bringing my oils as I do need some different supplies which I am not allowed to take on the plane. I do need a certain type of turpentine which won't ruin my expensive brushes...

    I hope you don't arrive in the "land of unobtanium" here in the DR as an artist. I suspect the products you need will at least be available in Santo Domingo or Santiago if you can't find them between Cabarete and Puerto Plata. Specific brands of turpentine will probably be difficult and also very hard to import yourself.

    i have never seen a Dominican or Haitian wash a brush used for painting either a picture or a house. They just throw them away!

    There are numerous talented Dominican Artists that use all the different mediums to paint. Oil, water colours, pastels, and , as they call it, plastica. With a little bit of searching you should be able to find all that you are looking for- geso, brushes...etc. I've seem many Dominicans and Haitians clean paint brushes and rollers.
