Join the gals in their fun discussion about paint today. Sharon and Katie go through the list of paints they are most familiar with and discuss which are their favorites and why. They also talk about the pros and cons of each paint media mentioned in the show and give us some ideas about which situation each is best used in.
Because they talked about so many different kinds and brands of paints, we thought it best to just give links for each brand and let you peruse the site for the different kinds of paints and paint additives each brand makes.
Because it wouldn’t be an episode of Two Artsy Gals if Katie and Sharon didn’t wax poetic about their love of Golden products, there was much discussion and a little silliness about their paints and additives today. You can check out all the Golden products here http://www.goldenpaints.com/.
Katie spent some time telling us about the Winsor & Newton Galleria acrylic colors that she likes to work with. You can find those and all the other wonderful paints they produce on their website here http://www.winsornewton.com/na/.
Katie also mentioned the Koi Water Colors by Sakura that she enjoys playing around with; they also make some other really cool products you should check out http://www.sakuraofamerica.com/.
And for those of you on a budget, Reeves makes quality products at a more affordable price. Check out what they have to offer on their website and start experimenting with some paints, yo! http://www.reeves-art.com/
Lastly, here is the link to The Artist’s Handbook, by Ray Smith. This is a must have in any artist’s stupid and is a book that the gals call upon time and again when working on episodes for the show. http://www.powells.com/biblio/7-9780756657222-1
