My Favorite Tools

I've had a few people ask me about my favorite tools for making art lately, so I've put together a page dedicated to my most precious art mediums and where to get them!

Below is a list of my favorite tools, pictures and a direct link to purchase them. Be sure to right click on the link and open it in a new tab! 



Higgins Waterproof Black Ink

I've been using Higgins Black Ink since high school. I sometimes mix a little water into it to dillute it into grays. It also works really well for homemade stick-and-poke tattoos! ;)

Global Canvas Pencil Cases

Montana Acrylic Markers

Montana acrylic paint markers are very vibrant and fluid! It's a bit hard to mix the colors, but they dilute with water very well for shading effects. Very fun to color over each other, as the pigments layer over the top of each other very well!

Sakura Pigma Micron Pen

Another tool I have been using for over 12 years. I seem to buy a new set every couple of months because I wear them out!

Derwent Academy Watercolor Pencils

Very soft and high pigmented pencils. Adding water increases their vibrancy, and smooths away the pencil lines.

Sakura Koi Water Brush

My go-to brushes lately! These have stored water right in them and can be taken just about anywhere. The brushes are synthetic and soft. Very easy to use!

Stabilo All Colored Marking Pencils

Hands down my favorite water-soluble pencils. I have several of each color because I love them so much! VERY vibrant.

Derwent Coloursoft Pencils

I am not sure why the skintones picture is showing up, but this links to a set of Derwent Coloursoft colored pencils. These pencils are like they say, colorful and soft. They are easy to blend together as well.
