-March Meet the Maker-
So far this March Ive been participating in March Meet the Maker, founded by Johanna Hawker on Instagram at some point in the past… seemed like a fun way to share a few behind the scenes things with all of my peeps and I always miss it until mid-month, so yay!
Supplies! I have too many, as noted in previous post, i just started getting rid of supplies I thought I would use, but just haven’t and they are weighing me down! Blah!
Here are my favs…
My favorites lately:
Golden t=Taklon : cats tongue & filberts & daggers
Synthetic Squirrel : I have a quill and i love it! wonderful snap and versatility
Silver Brush Limited : Black Velvet Pointed Rounds - available from most online art shops
Escoda Versatil Synthetic : I have a pointed round I really love
Ocean-i : Piccolo Brush, absolutely beautiful - i really love the hanging ribbon for drying. be gentle with this one!
Wish List: Rosemary & Co. Brushes
Ohhhh the paper! All of these can be found with a simple google search. Khadi is only available via certain sellers.
So many kinds I really love. Top of mind and go to are:
1. L’Aquarelle Canson Héritage - Ive only tried the 300 lb and it is like velvet. Such a beautiful texture! Definitely give it a try
2. Arches Cold Press any weight … nuff said. This paper is always my go to, its tough and I can make changes easily, has wonderful tooth and just an all around great paper.
3. Khadi Paper: this paper is handmade in India and it is so beautiful!
4. Shizen - beautiful textured paper
So many kinds to choose from now-a-days…in no particular order
