They are highly pigmented with a glossy finish which offers excellent light-fastness across the entire color range. They are ideal for applying on smooth, non-porous surfaces. The colors are quick-drying and can also be reworked, even after several weeks, to obtain shades, glazes, gradients and fading effects. Its unique formula brings traditional oil painting techniques to a whole new level when painting with oils yet enjoying the properties of a paint marker. They are great for use on canvas, wood panels, or paper for drawing, outlining, filling in, glazing, mixed media and more.

 

Pebeo Studio High Viscosity Dyna Acrylic Paint

These richly pigmented paints with a satin finish are obtained from pigments which create pearlescent effects. The effect is a play on the layers of light and reflection obtained by each. The colors perceived strongly depend on the light and angle at which the artwork is observed. Brushes can be cleaned with water. The paints dry to the touch in 30 minutes to 1 hour but completely in 1-8 days depending on thickness. They are great for use on canvas, cardboard wood, metal, and more.

These markers are a water-based marker designed for use on glass and crystal. The colors have excellent lightfastness and are wash-resistant even if not baked after 72 hours. The paint is tack-free in a few minutes and fully dry within 24 hours. They may be baked in 325 degree oven for 40 minutes.  They are resistant to dish-washing and to normal detergents after baking.

Derwent Inktense Pencils

These pencils are as versatile as watercolor pencils but have a firmer texture that allows them to perform with intense color. Inktense pencils can be used dry for rich intense color or washed out with a little water to create a lovely translucent effect. Once wetted and dried, they are somewhat waterproof making them difficult to reactivate but great for layering.

 

Ken Oliver’s Color Bursts

These concentrated, micro fine powdered watercolors are the latest trend in mixed media. There are a couple of other brands, but I prefer these for their application ease. They can be used to create beautiful watercolor effects and many other fun techniques. Apply to wet surface or spritz them after applying to a dry surface. When spritzed the powders will show multiple colors, but when mixed with water into a paint, the color is the solid color expected. They can be painted like regular watercolors. A little goes a very long way. If you see the powder before spritzing with water, you may have too much powder.

 

Ken Oliver’s Liquid Metals

These paints are a unique blend of finely granulated metallic powders and fluid designed to add a fabulous metallic luster to your mixed media work. Use in conjunction with Color Bursts or with any watercolor project.

 

Ranger Vintaj Patinas

Patinas can be blended and layered to create endless patina effects. Mix with Glaze to extend and create a color wash. The color combinations were developed to mimic natural patinas that would develop over time. They dry quickly to a satin finish.

 

Faber-Castell Gelatos

Gelatos are creamy, compact, acid-free pigment sticks that glide easily onto paper, canvas, wood and more for a smooth coverage. Infused with brilliant color, they can be used dry or dissolved with water to create many watercolor effects. These acid-free, colorless, lightfast paints work wonderfully to create works of art that last.

 

Lyra Aqua Color Crayons

ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glaze

Silks are a semi-translucent mix of brilliant color, mica and other mineral particles that refract light like a crystal. They are non-toxic and water-soluble which makes them easy to clean. Allow Silks to dry between colors to keep the layers distinct and to create depth, or blend the colors together while still wet. Silks are fully cured after 48 hours. They are formulated for paper, wood, pre-washed fabric, Papier Mache, plastic, canvas, gourds, silk, terra-cotta, paper clay, air-dry clay, leather, walls, and more. They naturally dry quicker on porous surfaces.

Twinks are cake watercolors like the Silks in that they include a blend of mica and minerals which transmit refractive light and color.
