for my birthday i placed an order of art supplies from dick blick.
i’d never ordered art supplies online before. i always adore wandering art supply stores and craft shops, searching for random supplies to play and experiment with. my feeling was that i liked to see everything in person and see what popped out at me in the moment.
but i had no idea just how fun it would be to see everything online too! and how addictive i am certain it might be.
here are a few of my favorite art supplies that i’ve been using in my new paintings…
Paint pens by Sharpie (i’m loving the neons and especially silver and gold),
new colors of water soluble oil pastels by Portfolio (i love the points, although i’ve already broken most of them off),
Shiva oil sticks (i use them over acrylics and to sketch on book pages),
neon blickrylic paints (fluorescent yellow orange and magenta…especially loving these mixed with a bit of a higher quality white paint),
and colored Bombay india inks (give a fabulous wash of sheer color).
What Are Your Favorite Art Supplies? I’d be delighted to know (and will probably end up ordering them too)!
ps. if you’d like to feel like mixed media painting, all of my online courses are now available as self-paced, instant access classes.
