I love a good art station set up, seeing what other people use and how they manage their space. I’m taking you inside my studio today as I show you my painting area and supplies for both acrylic and watercolor painting. There are links to all of my supplies so you can get started quickly.
1. Acrylic Paint - I've been using this Basics brand and this Americana Premium acrylic paint
2. Sheet for Messes - I just use an old bed sheet I don't mind getting dirty
3. Paint Pallet - This one is just from an art store, plastic and cheap
4. Canvas - I've been trying to buy canvases that are a little better quality, but this one is just from an art store
6. Paper Towels
7. Gold Leaf and Adhesive - I use Craft Smart gold leaf and Speedball metal leaf adhesive and the brush set is by Martha Stuart
8. Paint Brushes - I need bigger brushes for my large acrylic paintings, but these are just from a craft store
1. Watercolor Paint - My favorite is Windsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor
2. Brushes - For watercolor I use Princeton Heritage Round brushes in all different sizes
3. Two Water Cups - You need two!!
4. Watercolor Paper - I love this Strathmore one because the pages come off the block so easily
5. Paper Towels
6. Painters Tape - I use this to tape the paper down so it doesn't bow up
7. Masking Fluid - I can put this anywhere I don't want color
8. Micron Pens - I love to finish my watercolors with ink pen and these are the best.
I hope you enjoyed that! There is of course no wrong way to set something up, you don’t need all the fancy tools or expensive anything. You can create with what you have and grow your collection from there. Happy painting friends!
