Watercolor Painting Tools - Part 3: Watercolor Brushes

Brushes are like an extension of your arm so it is crucial to invest in the right type of brushes suited for your artwork. There are many types of watercolor brushes but most of them fall under three categories: synthetic, blended (mix of synthetic and real hair), and natural hair (squirrel, sable etc.) 

Kolinsky sable brushes are the most expensive and top notch quality brushes you can find for painting.

My second hobby is too messy...

I bought some plants about a week or so ago from JuciyKits.com to build a few more terrariums. They have a great selection and wonderful terrarium kits for anyone who doesn't want to drive around town picking up all the necessary supplies.

They also have great tutorials and tips on terrarium creation and care. Their 'Moonshine' series inspired me to make these cute little BlueMason Jar Terrariums!

In a previous post here, I mentioned the American Journey Porcelain Palette from Cheap Joe's and it arrived a few weeks back but I didn't get a chance to post about it since I've been getting sick lately.

I really like the clear plastic cover it came with. It make it much more pleasant to look at than the Stephen Quiller palette cover. Time to fill with paints!
