I just love art supplies. I have self-banned from shopping at any of the following stores due to my art supply hoard! But, you can shop and I can (vicariously) shop too! Enjoy.

Easy Enameled Flowers – on my YouTube Channel
Epoxies and Sculpting Pastes
- Amazon Golden Gesso – I prefer the Golden brand.
- Amazon Magic Sculpt
- Aves – Maker of a very cool two-part paste called: Apoxie Paste – that is workable with water (for smoothing and thinning) for about 40 minutes, still flexible for about 1hr. Eventually, it hardens to rock hard. Great for sculpting. It’s also an adhesive medium. Takes paint wet or dry. Aves also carries other fabulous products.
- Gesso can be found at any of the art supply vendors mentioned in this post, Michael’s, Dick Blick, Hobby Lobby, Amazon, etc.
- Kroma Artist’s Acrylics – Nice paints, mediums (no not the spiritual kind silly), and a very cool product called Kroma Crackle Medium. Here’s some of what this product can produce:
