Supplies:

  • Acrylic Paint We recommend buying non-kid quality acrylic paint for the best outcome. Acrylic Paint Set Link 4oz Sizes.
  • Acrylic Paint pens in black! We need this to outline some figures since it's kind of like animation characters. It will help with the painting to pop. Acrylic Paint Pens
  • Acrylic Paint Paper We recommend canvas or fully textured acrylic paper to have a good textured effect and non bleed qualities for the paint: Acrylic Paper 11" x 16" to be cut in half.
  • Brushes. A good set of brushes go a long way and it doesn't need to be ultra expensive brush. This set is a definite must if you don't have these shapes: Mixed Size Brush Set
