ACRYLIC PAINTING SUPPLY LIST

 

Colors Professional quality paints are far preferable to “student grade.” Some professional colors are available in 2 ounce or .75 ounce tubes.

When buying your first set of colors, it’s best to start with darker values. You can always lighten them with white and later buy lighter values as your budget allows.

           Titanium White (Usually sold in 5 or 7 ounce tubes. Ask if they have it in 2 ounce. Do not buy zinc white)

           Ivory Black

           Yellow Cadmium Hue Medium. If that’s not available, Hansa or Azo Medium

           Phthalo Blue (Green shade only!)

           Ultramarine Blue Hue (Red shade only!)

           Cadmium Red Light Hue

           Alizarin Crimson

           Raw Sienna (if unavailable, you can substitute yellow ochre)

           Burnt Sienna

           Raw Umber

           Burnt Umber

           Phthalo Green (Blue shade)

           Neutral Grey (not Payne’s grey). Preferably Value 5. If that’s not available, look for Golden Neutral Grey Value 4 or 6.

Avoid genuine cadmium or cobalt colors. If the word “hue” is on the table, it means the color is an imitation hue — which is satisfactory and much less expensive.

Some colors are available at .75 ounce or less. If you can afford more colors, you may want to add Dioxazine Purple, Chromium Oxide Green, Alizarin Crimson, Prussian Blue, Chromium Oxide Green, or Payne’s Grey

 

Brushes Should be nylon bristle — no hog’s hair or sable. Because there is as yet no standardization in brush sizes, numbers vary from one manufacturer to another. You should have:

           At least 3 flats: one quarter-inch, on half-inch, and one at least one inch

           2 round brushes: Connoiseur Taklon #1 or equivalent size (no smaller) and Connoiseur Taklon #2 or equivalent

           No angle brushes or fan brushes  

 

Surfaces I recommend canvas panels for economical reasons. 8 x 10, 9 x 12 and 11 x 14 are good sizes.

“Paper canvas,” sold in pads, is even more economical. A little more expensive, but also practical, are sheets of actual primed canvas, sold in pads.

 

Palette Disposable paper palettes, sold in pads, are ideal.

No wooden, plastic, or “stay-wet” palettes.

 

Palette Knife Metal, not plastic, and preferably trowel-shaped.

 

Vessels A plastic brush basin with ridges on the bottom. If that’s not available, you may want to buy a Silicoil jar, which comes with a coil at the base, but not the Silicon solvent sold in conjunction with it. Another option is the Mona Lisa jar, wit a dome of chicken wire inside.
