I often get asked what are some of my favorite art materials - my "go-to" supplies. While my art room is generally a mass of labeled totes and boxes of assorted stuff, here are some of my favorite things to use. The things that make me all happy-pants when I find the opportunity to use them.
Sargent Art Liquid Metals
Chroma A2 Acrylic Paints
Tombow Mono Adhesive
My hot glue gun - dual temp. I have 3-4 and misplace them regularly.
Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue
Yarn - the brighter and softer the better. I love to crochet and have a basket of yarn permanently full of skeins just waiting for a purpose.
Here are some of my favorite places to shop for inspiration & materials:
United Art & Education - this store has both art and school items. I can get paint and a math workbook for the kiddo. Awesome!
Joanne's - the craft place for real crafters. Nothing personal, Michael's. I just think Joanne's has a more comprehensive selection.
Etsy - I'm all for homegrown, homemade, grass-roots support
