Artist Supplies

You don’t need to spend a ton of money to begin creating.  Investing in a few quality art supplies are a good idea at the start, and then you can build your supplies over time.  Purchasing too many supplies at first may leave you feeling overwhelmed.  Check out my list of suggested supplies below.

(If you purchase supplies through my website, a portion of your purchase will help me build my business.  Thanks in advance for supporting small business!)

Supplies

Getting Started! Suggested Supplies

 Here are some products I like and can get you started without too much initial expense.  These are just suggestions, and you do not by any means need to purchase all of the below.  If you have a sketchbook already or watercolor paper, use what you have.  No need to break the bank here.

Start with a few items like watercolor paper, a small sketchbook, pigment pens, and watercolors and brushes.

Additional Supplies

If you want to add-on to your art supply collection, here is a list of additional things you may want to purchase later-on.  Check back here often as I will add and update the list periodically.

  • Uni-Posca Paint Markers – they come in a variety of nib sizes and colors, and write on just about anything!  I have the fine point in a basic color set, as well as some metallics.
  • Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen – this is my favorite white pen for drawing over a painted background.
  • A good quality X-Acto knife like the X-Acto X3000.  This is great for all paper-cutting and collage projects.
  • A cutting mat like Alvin Self-healing Cutting Mats – these come in a variety of sizes.  A must-have

There may be specific supplies required for other workshops like fabric dyes or special tools.  These will be listed with the workshop descriptions.
