Sometimes you just need something fun and easy to do in the studio that cheers you up and feels productive. Making Pretty Papers is just the thing for a chilly November day.

Here are some links to the materials I am using, though there are more links on my Favorite Materials page.
Novacolor Paints - these are decent quality paints: good pigments in a good binder, but they are more extended (i.e. less pigment per unit of volume) than professional grade paints. You can only get them from the manufacturer; they are not available from retailers.
ArtQuest Perfect Pigments, made in Michigan, are relatively new to me. Gorgeous colors!
Golden Fluid Acrylics: many of you are familiar with these luscious paints. I use them for most of my smaller work, and the Heavy Body paints for larger works. I use some of the HB paints in this video too.
Golden High Flow Acrylics: these are low-viscosity (think: watery) paints suitable for dripping, dropping, splashing, flinging, hurling, spattering, and the like. They have the same pigment load as other Golden paints, so they are not simply Fluid Acrylics watered down.
Stay Warm, but have a chill weekend. We all need it after last week!
