Also nice to have:
Any watercolor paint will work. I will be using Qor Watercolor paints for the majority of the lessons. I will also show how to make your own paint, if you desire.
The brands I like the most:
Not ready to commit, but want to play? Prang offers a very affordable set of student grade watercolors that are surprisingly great!
Metallics - for all your shimmery needs.
Travel - Great little set for traveling.
