Filbert Paint Brushes- different sizes
by Ebony Splendor

Screen Shot 2022-05-07 at 1.38.48 PM.png

ESSENTIAL- You'll need a variety of different sizes of filbert brushes. I suggest that you don't spend tons of money on them so this is an affordable option.

Canvas Panels

For your first few projects you can just use canvas panels that are 8X10 or 9X12".  These can easily be picked up at Hobby Lobby or Michaels as well.

Once you get through a few projects you'll move to stretched canvas, then MDF board and then ABS panels. 

Small Palette Knife

ESSENTIAL- You'll need palette knife that is flexible and well made for mixing your paints.

Brush Washer Can

ESSENTIAL- This is the container you store your Gamsol in! It has a tray with holes inside to allow the paint sediments to settle to the bottom. The three clasps ensure it doesn't leak when tipped on its side.

Turpenoid or Gamsol
for cleaning brushes

 

Screen Shot 2022-05-07 at 2.14.22 PM.png

ESSENTIAL- You'll need an odorless brush cleaner.  I suggest turpenoid or Gamsol by Gamblin.

Palette

You will need a palette and there are several to choose from but the one most of my students use is this one!  It has a cover that seals tight so you can store your wet paints for a while.

Several students have gotten two of them so they have something to take their smaller wet paintings home in safely.  (A pizza box works great too!)

Disposable Palette Sheets

If you buy the palette shown above you will need some palette sheets to make clean up much easier. 

Handheld Palette
by New Wave

Screen Shot 2022-05-07 at 5.13.37 PM.png

This is another option for a palette. If you prefer to hold your palette instead of setting it on the table you'll love this palette.  I prefer this palette and I clean it off regularly.  It take a little more work, but it's a palette!

Apron
by Mornite

You'll need something to protect your clothing.  Most students just use an apron, but make sure it's long and goes to your knees at least to protect your pants when you sit and paint.  You can also use a lab coat, which is what I prefer because I can wear good clothes and know that they won't get ruined. 

Lab Coat

If you prefer to cover your clothing more, then a lab coat is a great choice! I love mine!  It's messy and has lots of paint on it, but my clothes don't!

Floor Easel
by Meeden

Screen Shot 2022-03-03 at 6.41.56 PM.png

FYI- Several of my students have asked what is a good easel for them to purchase to use at home.  I really like this one because the "H" frame is sturdy and moves easily when needed.  I have these frames in the studio and love them!
