Acrylic Palette Layout


With the above acrylic colors and the acrylic brushes listed below
you will be able to paint the majority of the Inspiration of Painting
scenes taught in our videos.

----------------------------------------

We recommend the high quality Artist Acrylics like Liquitex Heavy Body Artist
Acrylics, Golden Heavy Body Artist Acrylics, Holbein
Artist Acrylics, and any
other high quality Artist grade acrylics.

If you are on a tight budget the cheaper Student Acrylics will work.

Do Not use the Craft Acrylics. They are generally very watered down and have
much lower pigment concentrations.
