I love the price on this. I use this pad for my drafts so go through it quickly.

Synthetic Brushes

These Princeton Elites are my favorite but find a synthetic brush that works for you.

Tim Holtz - Ink

Most of my collection is made of Ranger inks. They are often sold in a set of three complimentary colors.

Primal Flow Paints

They have amazing pre-mixed paints for pours.

Liquitex Ink

These are acrylic. Don't confuse them with the alcohol inks. They do not work the same.

Buttery.

Liquitex Mediums

Can't go wrong with anything from Liquitex.

For my detail lines.

Arteza Flow Paints

Perfect for those just starting out, or those who don't feel like doing the prepwork.

Pouring Medium

A more cost effective alternative to the art supply mediums. This does take some trail and error though.

Varnish

I look for archival quality varnishes like the one from Golden. I'll also add UV protection.
