Acrylic Paints

Start with basic primary colors:  Titanium White, Mars Black, Cadmium Red Medium Hue, Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue, Ultramarine Blue. 


Here some additional colors that we recommend having on hand.

Phthalo Green, Cerulean Blue, Magenta, Payne’s Grey, Bright Aqua Green, & METALLIC GOLD (and any other metallics or fluorescents you like).

You can order online from Blick,  their Studio Acrylics are great, or Arteza, I love their metallics.  We also like Liquitex Basics.

Brushes - assorted sizes

You'll want brushes for acrylic paints (stiffer than watercolor and not as stiff as oil paint brushes). You can order from Blick, they have many affordable options.


12x18 or larger stretched canvas (we love to work on un-stretched canvas too).  You can also work on any size art journal or mixed media paper)


Additional Supplies to have handy

  • palette (paper plate or meat tray)
  • container of water to clean brushes

  • rags or paper towel



  • Stencils, stamps, gel prints, sponges, bubble wrap, empty paper towel roll (for texture)
