I often get asked what my favorite art supplies are so I've decided to put them all in one place.
Below you'll find some of my go to products. Just click the photos to get some for yourself.
Rich in color, these are my favorite watercolor paints.
I also use the pan sets.
I love the price on this. I use this pad for my drafts so go through it quickly.
These watercolor pencils are so easy to blend.
I use these for both watercolor and ink pieces.
I prefer hot pressed paper. I can get crisper lines.
These Princeton Elites are my favorite but find a synthetic brush that works for you.
Most of my collection is made of Ranger inks. They are often sold in a set of three complimentary colors.
Want to know how I get my sharp lines? I use a variety or masking fluids. I love the color tint in the Pebeo.
A nonporous, synthetic paper
A dye based, acid free ink from Brea Reese.
A must have when working with the inks.
My recommendation for those just starting out - more forgiving.
A transparent, dye based ink from Jacquard.
Look for 91% or higher for a budget friendly alternative to blending solution.
Each is labeled with the shade's opacity, lightfastness, an pigment information.
They have amazing pre-mixed paints for pours.
These are acrylic. Don't confuse them with the alcohol inks. They do not work the same.
Can't go wrong with anything from Liquitex.
For my detail lines.
Perfect for those just starting out, or those who don't feel like doing the prepwork.
A more cost effective alternative to the art supply mediums. This does take some trail and error though.
I look for archival quality varnishes like the one from Golden. I'll also add UV protection.
