Prismacolor Colored Pencils

I love these pencils.  They have consistent color and blend really well.  They come in just about any color you can imagine, even metallics and neons. There is even a blender pencil, though I have have not tried it yet.  It’s on my list.

 

Ranger Archival Ink

I bought this because it was highly recommended by several people in the stamp carving community of letterboxing.  It has rich pigment and is permanent, so it doesn’t smear when you want to watercolor over it.

 

Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks

I use these inks for my Artist Trading Cards and in my scrapbooking pages.  They are easy to use and come in a wide variety of colors.  I have even used them on some of my pictures to add a bit of distress and aging to them.

 

Speedball Linoleum Cutters

I have the set that comes with the 5 different blades and the convenient storage in the handle.  I usually use only the #1 and the #5.  These are super easy to use.  My kids use them for their stamp creating as well!

 

Speedball Speedy Carve Block

I use the Speedball Speedy Carve Block to carve my stamps.  It works great with the Speedball Linoleum Cutters.  it is soft material, so it is easier on your hands to glide the blade through.  We have created many stamps from this material!

 

Winsor & Newton Watercolor Tubes

I have a few of these from my school days.  The pigment is great and gives you  rich color in your piece.  Though, I don’t recommend leaving them out in your hot car on a Texas summer day.  Mine dried out.  I have heard good things about the pans (see my wish list).

 

Derwent Watercolor Pencils

I haven’t played with these as much as I would like.  They are nice for adding smaller detail to your watercolor pieces that might be harder to do with a brush.

 

Strathmore 400 Series Sketch Book

I like using this sketch pad with my colored pencils because it has a fine tooth surface that makes for blending well.

 

Stadium Seat

When I am out creating En Plein Air, I like to have some back support and bottom cushion, so I bring along my stadium seat like this one.  It’s cushy, and gives a little support when I sit on the ground, or even on a bench.

 

My Wish List!
