These guys are wild and plentiful in Hawaii. They are still hunted to be the main course in any Luau.
140# Multimedia paper - It's thick and able to withstand layers of water-based paints. I also enjoy the texture of the 300 series paper. Get 2 packs (32 sheets each) of Arteza Watercolor paper from Amazon by clicking here.
Tombow Calligraphy Pens (fine tips) - My mother gave me a set of these for my birthday and my artistic mind burst with glittery glee when I realized how easily these pens made thick and thin lines in a single stroke! They also ink right over the chalky gouache paint (when it is dry) so if I want to make a piece pop with bold black outlines I can. As an artist I love tools and materials that give me more options to use them. Get a set of 2 pens (different sizes) from Amazon by clicking here.
