Paint and Lettering
Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor Paints (36 colors) - I am wary of pan paints because often the colours become chalky or muddy when they dry. But not this set! Want to try watercolor lettering but not spend a fortune? Then this is the perfect set for you.
Dr. Ph Martin's Hydrus Watercolors - expensive but the color is so vibrant! These are a bit thicker than the Ecoline watercolor paints so they can give some more opaque coverage.
Ecoline Watercolor Brush Pens - The juiciness of these pens is gorgeous. They aren't cheap but they're so much fun. You can also dip them into the Ecoline watercolor pots and get a gorgeous color change effect.
Finetec Artist Mica Watercolor Set - it is called watercolor but it is anything but watery! Imagine liquid gold and that's what this set gives you. A must-have!
Van Gogh Tube Watercolors - This 10 pack set is a solid starter set for using tube watercolors. After this, you can add colors individually to your collection as you need them.
Strathmore Mixed Media Paper - This is a great alternative to watercolor paper. It doesn't have as much texture to it as regular watercolor paper but is so lovely and thick and paint stays so vibrant on it.
Sakura Koi 9ml Water Brush, Small - the easiest way to create stunning watercolour lettering. (Shown here filled with black watercolour but I usually use it with water in the barrel.)
Jerry's Brush Washer and Basin - Make sure that you always have clean water on your brush before it hits your paper. This flat-based double well basin is the perfect way to get your brush clean. It also has a mini palette within the top of the lid.
Leakproof Watercolor Palette - Store your premade and created colors within a leakproof palette so you can come back to them next time you paint.
Faber-Castell Watercolor Pencil Crayons - Get the beauty of paint without the mess. Try these saturated watercolor pencil crayons to ease yourself into color!
Ranger Embossing Pen Pack - This 2 pack gives a clear embossing pen for lighter embossing powders and a black embossing pen for darker embossing powders.
Moleskine Art Plus Sketchbook - this is what I use for my church journaling. It has thicker paper so it doesn't bleed through, but it is hard on your pens.
