What follows is a list of tools that I use when creating my watercolor artwork. The links provided are affiliate links. By using these links, I receive a small kickback from Amazon. So this is a great way for you to help my channel. Thank you!
- Porcelain Watercolor Palette. This is a really nice palette to work with. The feel of the brush on porcelain is superior and I’ve never had any trouble with staining, which can happen on plastic palettes. A less expensive option would be a plain white dinner plate, like this. You won’t get the benefit of the individual wells or the dust cover, but it is still a perfectly workable solution!
- Soy Sauce Dipping Bowls. Something like this set is really nice to have, since they don’t cost very much and allow you to mix up a good amount of color for most washes.
- M. Graham 1/2-Ounce Tube Watercolor Paint Basic 5-Color Set. This is a good little set to get started with, if you’re looking to try the paints I use in my work.
- Disc-cap Travel Bottle. This is purely a convenience item, but it will make things easier! The link is to a travel set of bottles but you only need the one disc-cap bottle. If you already have one that you can wash out (thoroughly), feel free to use that.
- Holbein Watercolor Spray Bottle 2oz. This is a really handy bottle to have for wetting areas of a painting or waking up colors on the pallet.
