Suggested Art Supply List

Please know that it is not my intention for you to purchase all the supplies! You may have a lot of these already, and I always suggest that you use your favorites supplies on hand. And, always stay true to the colors that you love. I am also listing options and different brands.

Paper Options

I am using a 9x12 piece of watercolor paper

Watercolor Block Pads – different brands
Fabriano hot press 140lb (9x12 pad)
Arches hot press 140lb (10x14 pad)
Student Grade Fabriano hot press watercolor pad (more affordable) 

Single sheets of Fabriano hot press watercolor paper 22” x30”

Acrylic Inks

Choose 2 colors you want for your backgrounds or make your own!

King Art Brushes mixed media paintbrush kit

Sponge Brushes

Wax Crayons

I love painting and drawing with these crayons, just make sure you choose water-soluble so you can use wet. If you are lucky to visit an art supply store, you can usually find the Neo Colors and wax crayons as singles or find sets online.

Neo Color IIs set

Stabilo Woody 3-in-1 set

KingArt Stick Gel Crayons set


Watercolor Pencils

So many choices out there. I personally like the Caran D’ache the best, the Supra Color II line is incredible. And like the Neo’s sometimes you can find these in an art supply store and just find the colors you like instead of a set. Also, the Faber Castell Aqua line is great too.

Faber Castell Goldfaber Aqua set
