Good morning. Rise and shine it is time to buy painting supplies. I don’t know about you but love to get painting treasures in the mail. Here are more links. We will see how it works with my typing. I love to learn from books because I don’t have to keep pausing a video. And if you want to keep it forever you can. I know for me, if I haven’t done something for a while I forget how to do it. I am 63 years old and the memory is not getting any better. Next, I will find you one of those stay wet pallets. I have one and would not do without it. I put the colors I need in it and have it for the entire painting. Cheap and fantastic. I need to tell you I am an associate of blicks, and if you follow one of these links and purchase then I will get a bit of commission.
Here is the Sta-wet paint pallet.
Blick Studio Acrylics – Set of 6 colors, 120 ml tubesSorry the image had issues and made this page a mess. But with 6 primary colors, you can mix all colors. Color mixing is a good skill to learn. That way you don’t have to buy all the paints. And second, many times you are not going to find the color you want.
And this is a start-up kit, just in case you haven’t tried this before. Blicks carries a multitude of different Brands of paints and in different price ranges. I will put up a couple of different colors of each brand. I order some colors I needed. And I bought brands I hadn’t Then you can look for the color you want. And it does good to try a different brand once in a while. Then you will know what brand you like best. These are the little bottles like you can pick up at Walmart or Michaels.
DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint – In all colors. but I will share it twice. They go to different colors. Then when you get there select the color you need.

Now I will go look at brush sets and see what I can find generally you do not want natural hair for acrylics. They are entirely to whimpy. Use a good soft not stiff man-made fiber brush. This first set is on sale now but is kinda spend at list price.
Loew-Cornell Brush Wrap Set – Oil/Acrylic, Set of 18This is a nice set. Meant for beginners, is wrapped in a cloth organizer and the price is economical.
