More Watercolor Supplies



Of course, you will need the most basic of watercolor supplies: water! Designate an old cup or jar to be your water container. Find one with a sturdy base that won’t tip over easily (a coffee mug, a canning jar, a cool whip container); if it spills on your painting, it will be difficult to recover your work.


OPTIONAL SUPPLIES include:

A drawing pencil and eraser

An old toothbrush for spattering the paint

A spray bottle to re-wet the paper or create various patterns

A jar of Liquid Frisket for covering areas you want to remain white. When applied, it dries fairly quickly, becoming gummy-like (much like rubber cement glue). You can paint over it, then rub it off to reveal the white areas. This comes in handy when you have a lighter front subject and a large background area to paint -- you can block out the subject and create a smooth background wash by going right over the liquid frisket.

Your almost ready to begin! The last thing you'll need is a paper towel or an old dish cloth to clean your brush on and remove excess water.
