Suggested Art Supply List, Extras + Options!

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. All my lessons can easily be done in a color palette of your choosing. I recommend you watch the videos first to see what you need!

I am listing options for supplies as well, same product - different brands.



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, more if you want to have different colors.

I use green + blue, and then magenta + purple. I also add a little white high flow paint to mix

Substitutions: fluid paint, or homemade fluid paint (there is a video in the classroom on making your own)

Amsterdam Yellowish Green

Daler-Rowney Turquoise

Daler-Rowney Magenta

Daler-Rowney Purple

Golden High Flow White (not necessary, but it’s great to mix with)



King Art Brushes mixed media paint brush kit

Sponge Brushes

Old brush (for gluing)


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 you can 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.

Glues + Tapes

There are lots of options to adhere your collage pieces

Matte Medium (or modge podge) –

I like matte medium the best for gluing small pieces and you will need matte medium homemade fluid paint recipe if you are making that.

Yes Paste (optional) – you can use matte medium to adhere your pieces as well.

Tombow tape (optional) – great if you don’t want to get too sticky with glue!

Artist tape (optional)

Magic Scotch tape (optional)
