(Here are the things I use everyday to make art!
- Graham Acrylic Paints, I love the consistency and high pigment load, I'm also starting to buy Sennelier (nice and rich), Holbein and Golden Fluid acrylics.
- Cheap brushes from Michaels - I've bought expensive brushes, and I like these just as much. They wear out in about a year, and I replace them!
- American Easel Panels Made in Salem, Oregon, just north of me! The best, consistent quality, sturdy, smooth.
- Blick Disposable Palettes
- Cheap towels from goodwill cut into squares for cleaning my brushes as I work
- Organic Guatemalan coffee from Pacifica Coffee roaster in Corvallis, THE BEST!
- Epson SureColor p600 printer. Great Fine Art Print quality, archival inks.
- Acryla-Miser Palette - I lay out my palette once every few weeks or so. This palette enables me to keep a nice blob of acrylic hydrated and usable for about 2-3 weeks. I usually use the paint up by then, and switch everything out. Clean well when changing out the colors.
