If you have been following me this past week on Instagram @sannaart you will have noticed that I have been working on new 12" x 12" pieces on paper. One of the final touches that I have been adding to these new pieces is "mark making". These are circles, squares, outlines, things that focuses attention on a specific part of the painting. Most of this months supply suggestions are things that are specifically designed for this type of art process.
All of this months supplies can be found at most art supply stores. They are all able to be shipped from online art stores like:
Blick Art Supply
Plaza Art Supply
Sennelier Oil Pastel
These oil Pastels are my go to favorite. They are so buttery and the colors are extremely rich. I have shown this set of colors just to give you an idea of the possibilities. They are purchasable as individual stocks at most art supply/ craft stores.
NOTE**** Always use Oil Pastels in the Final Layer when covering over acrylic or watercolor paints. You will need to seal the final layer with the fixative listed below.
Krylon K01306 Workable Fixatif Spray Clear,
I use this Fixative spray to protect my final layer of Mark Making. It has a fairly strong odor and fumes so I always spray it outside, even in the winter months. It is quick to dry which I really Like.
Golden Fluid Acrylic, 1 Ounce Set Of 10, Assorted Colors
These are my favorite brand of paints to work with on paper. The have fantastic coverage and mix easily with either clear or white gesso to thin out and spread better on the paper surface. Check out my previous blog post on the many uses of Gesso. gessothe-versatile-medium.html
Golden Fluid Acrylics are viscous, with high tinting strength, flexibility and durability on many surfaces. They are recommended for mixing, tinting, and shading. Ideal for spraying, brushing, or mixing with all Golden colors. When used with Acrylic Flow Release the Fluids work as staining or watercolor techniques.
