Here are five of the things I ordered:
This is Jane Davies fault. She turned me on to the pale colors and neturals in this line of matte acrylics and now I want them all. Plus the black and white are simply must-have staples. (P.S.: matte paint = art journal pages that don't stick together)
I keep hearing about how awesome acrylic inks are and so I had to order some. I read the reviews for these versus the Liquitex acrylic inks and decided that these were the ones to try! I'm super excited about the white, which I understand to be quite opaque!
This is not a product that I knew existed until I went wandering through the Blick online aisles. I love my Golden Fluid acrylics, and I'm a fan of matte paints, so I'm super excited to see what these are all about. I will be sure to report back once I've given them a try! Theoretically, they're great for spraying!
For the last year or two I've almost exclusively used a plastic plate as my paint palette. I've only pulled out the Palette Paper when I've been working on a large painting, custom mixing all of my own colors. And since I bought my big beautiful 16x24 Tri-Art Non-Stick Palette, I haven't even been using the Palette Paper. And then, all of a sudden, I found myself doing a lot of printing (could have something to do with my upcoming book) and I've been going through Palette Paper like nobody's business. With the super sale on these Blick disposable palette pads, I had to buy 3! Didn't I?
I've been doing a lot of painting with India Ink and Sumi Ink recently. Those kinds of inks need a palette with wells (so you can dilute the intense black with water). I decided to upgrade from a plastic palette (which I may or may not have managed to flip over a few times when it was full of black ink) to a more substantial porcelain palette. Truth be told, Dick Blick didn't have the palette I really wanted (a cupcake palette), so we'll see how this goes.
So, there you have it. That's what is coming to play at my house (hopefully soon).
Have a great weekend!
