My Art Stuffs 🎨

  1. Derwent Coloursoft Colour Pencils
    I ADORE these. I've had them for years and will continue to buy them. Pretty expensive as 24 pencil pack is around $40, but worth it.
  2. Crayola Colored Pencils
    Good ol' Crayola because they always deliver if you don't want to spend $40.
  3. Derwent Watercolour Pencils
    So freaking fantastic! I LOVE them! Also around $40 for 24 pencils. You can wet the paper first and then use the pencil on it to create dark lines or you can draw first with the pencils and then use a wet paintbrush to give it the watercolor effect. So awesome.
  4. Drawing Pencils: Faber-Castell, Daler-Rawney, and random ones
    I always use my Faber-Castell ones because I forget I have the other ones. Also there's a random charcoal pencil in there. I'm not a fan of charcoal because it's so messy and you have to get that stuff to spray on it so it doesn't smear when you're done. The hardest graphite pencil I have is 4H and the softest is 8B. I'll use any eraser if needed but the Pental Hi-Polymer eraser is my favorite and preferred eraser.
  5. Crayola Supertip Markers
    I don't use markers that much so I use Crayola. I like these. But would also like to expand my marker collection.
  6. Crayola Crayons
    These are essential for everyone to have. That is all I have to say.
  7. My pencil case
    I keep my colored pencils and my Faber pencils in here. The case has a touch of Stevie Nicks inspired ribbon work. The ribbons have come in handy when I can't find them in a bag but spot part of a ribbon and then I'm able to yank it out.
  8. Reeves Oil Colour Set
    I used these once. I have ZERO clue what to do with oil painting. Also I don't have the proper stuff to clean my paintbrushes with, because you can't clean them with water because oil repels water. I would love to learn. Also oil paint takes FOREVER to dry and let me tell you I am not that patient.
  9. Daler-Rowney Watercolours
    My friend got me these for my birthday. I haven't gotten to use them yet. I actually don't really know how to use water colors so I need to experiment.
  10. Acrylic Paint: Anita's and Apple Barrel
    66 total colors plus 1 sparkle and 2 bottles of Bob Ross Gesso. Both are good. Anita's is like 77 cents for a 2 oz. bottle. Apple Barrel is 50 cents. So both are very cheap and they last awhile. I've never used any other paints. I've been using Anita's since I was like 8. Sometimes it gets what I like to call a "paint clot" that you have to pull out other than that they are solid for my painting desires.
  11. Paintbrushes
    I buy them in packs. They need to be soft. I don't like the prickly feeling paintbrushes. The only time I would buy a single paintbrush is if I need a specific size or shape other than that packs forever. Also because I often lose them so losing a $5 paintbrush isn't great.
  12. Clay Tools
    These are sooo old. I got them when I was like 13 or 14 when I was experimenting in the world of clay.
  13. Paint Palette
    I absolutely LOVE this one. It's got the little wells and big areas. Also it shuts so if you need to move its not messy. Also it's supposed to keep the paint from drying for a little longer than if it were open. It's works fairly well but I haven't actually tried it. A wet paper towel over the wells and it shut would probably be better because it will lock the moisture in.
  14. Current Canvases
    I don't have a particular brand I buy, I just get what's available in the size I want. I do like the ones that are stretched over wood because I like painting the sides. I also really like the mini canvases. Like the 4x4 inch ones.
  15. Watercolor paper, sketch book, and canvas paper
    Watercolor paper and canvas paper are straight up some of the best things in the world. Canvas paper is way cheaper than actual canvases and if you're just trying to be creative and making fun stuff you don't have to spend tons of money. And you can cut it smaller or into any damn shape you like. It's also at Walmart.
  16. And finally...my coloring books
    I will fight anyone who makes fun of people who color in so called "adult" coloring books. The only thing I don't like is don't see the reason to call them adult coloring books. Is calling it a coloring book hurting your adult ego? No. These were what kept me busy and calm when I was in the psych ward, so they are awesome and I will defend them.
