The world of art supplies can be confusing and it seems like cool new stuff is coming out every day! Listen people, art supply addiction is a thing. I think you should have all the supplies you want - as long as you are USING them. They do you no good if they're just sitting there unused. And guess what? They WILL go bad.
With that in mind, I've put together a few lists of things that I love, use and recommend. Please note that these are affiliate links, and if you purchase supplies through these links, I may get small commission - thank you for supporting a dream!
Mark-making tools - whatever you've got, or feel drawn to:
Oil Pastels (My go-to!)
Collage ephemera - magazine clippings, junk mail, old books, newspapers
Palette or paper plates
Beginning Acrylic Painting
Palette Knife Painting
