My Favorite Supplies

I am a firm believer that you do not have to have all the best supplies or the supplies I have in order to learn watercolor. I use a mixture of inexpensive and more expensive supplies depending on what is the purpose of my painting.


Greeting Card Class:

Strathmore 105-260-1 Creative Cards and Envelopes 5" x 6.875", 50 Pack, Fluorescent White/Deckle


Mostly in my kits:

Watercolor Paper: 9" x 12", 140 lb, Acid free, Cold press, Academic level 1

* Watercolor Paper makes a huge difference - it doesn't mater what brand but it does matter that is 140lb paper. 


36 ct. Watercolor Pan Set by Artist's Loft™ Fundamentals™

The set I use most myself: Angora 36-Pan Watercolor Set or 24-Pan
or from 

* I have been known to even use simple Crayola Watercolor sets you can find in the children's section of stores. You do not need expensive watercolor set to make a good watercolor painting. You will find that the more expensive the watercolors the more pigment they have and brighter they are. This set gives a good collection of color that is inexpensive. 

Uni-ball 207 Impact Gel Pens, Bold Point, Black, Box of 12

* My favorite pen! I use it for everything, once it drys it is permanent.  

Faber-Castell Kneaded Eraser, Large, Grey

* You can find kneaded erasers in most drawing sets or in the drawing section of craft stores.
