Materials Information and Technical Resources for Artists (MITRA) Discussion Forum

University of Delaware's MITRA Discussion Forum is intended to provide independent information and education on art materials to practicing artists and educators around the world. This site will become a critical resource as we share best practices and cutting-edge scientific research with practicing artists. An important aspect of the forum will be its absolute objectivity. No specific brands will be promoted but unique products produced by particular companies may be mentioned in terms of specific questions.

All discussion content within the Forum reflects the independent views of individuals (including but not limited to artists, scientists, conservators, industry representatives, and scholars) and does not necessarily represent the views or judgments held by the University of Delaware and its affiliated personnel, faculty or staff.

We welcome any feedback related to the content and administration of this Forum. However, we reserve the right to make final decisions on all content posted. If you have questions, comments, or concerns about the above stated disclaimer and terms of use of this Forum, please contact us at
