Here are the art supplies I bought since my last shoplog. I also bought a lot of softpastels, but I'll make a different shoplog about all of this.
Gold and copper leafs
I love to apply golden accents on my illustrations and thought that it would maybe be nice to try this out with gold leaf or copper leaf. I hope I will find the time soon to experiment with it!
I never used POSCA markers before (always the cheaper kinds), but I wanted to try it out. I started with only white and gold for details in illustrations, but was so happy with them that I kept on ordering more colours.
'SKIN' Watercolor set
I bought this cute watercolor set on AliExpress. It only has skintones and I would love to try it out on portraits. Haven't used it yet, but I shall write a review when I have made something with it.
Every now and then I buy a set of very thin brushes on AliExpress. I use them for details in illustrations. These are very nice, they are very soft and are comfortable to hold.
Tombow brush pen in skintones
I bought these skin-coloured Tombow brush pens at Pipoos, a shop with art supplies in Ghent. It says they are water-based, but unfortunately you can't mix them with water.
White and golden gelpens
I always buy golden and white gelpens whenever I see them, cause I use them A LOT in my illustrations.
A suitcase filled with art supplies
I bought this wooden suitcase filled with art supplies, just for the wooden suitcase (wanted to give the art supplies away to a child, thinking they would be of horrific quality), but actually, it aint that bad!
What did you recently bought for your artwork?
On my blog I write about the process of improving my skills, about grabbing every chance I get to become more experienced and about learning from ups and downs. Besides that, I write about everything that inspires me, like film, photography, paintings and psychology.
