>New Painting Supplies


Thanks for all the comments on my last post! I did finish my Bluebird in New Hampshire bead-painting over the weekend, but that was pretty much all I accomplished. I didn’t have any time to do beadwork, but I did have time to go shopping.. I got some new paint brushes & acrylic paints! 🙂

The above photo shows which paints I got. I actually got the Utrecht paints a couple of weeks ago when I was in Cambridge, and I got the Liquitex this past weekend. Some colours are for my beaded White House painting and others are for a future piece! I also got some new Robert Simmons paint brushes. These seem to be my favourite brushes to use so far because they are comfortable to hold, the bristles are very smooth, and they help to apply paint evenly. After I returned from shopping, I organized my paints in the little caddy shown below.. It seems like I have a lot of paints, for a bead artist! 😉

  1. >I love getting new supplies! I recently bought some new papers for making paper beads, and some cat's eye butterfly beads. The cat's eye beads look so pretty that I haven't brought myself to cut them off the string yet! 🙂

  2. >Yep, it does seem like you have a lot of paints for a bead artist, but not for one who like to paint. Can we ever have too many beads? NO! Can we ever have too many paints? NO!

  3. >Today I bought E6000 glue, but I really love to take a trip to my local bead store. I'm holding back I don't really need any beads right now. I'm trying to work with what I have in my stash.

  4. >We got some clay and misc. jewelry stuff at Michaels this weekend, and I'm so psyched to play with the new toys! hehehe

  5. >Jeez! I go to cooking school for a year and come back to find you just the little beading diva! ;-)Excellent work! You are inspiring me to start working on some of my beading projects long since hibernating and get going!Gorgeous work as always!

  6. >I bought paint too!!! I haven't painted in a long time and thought it was about time I had a go again. Also, I just LOVE your bluebird bead-painting, what talent you have :0)
