Hi! I just watched the video and it is GREAT!

I read the materials list and set about buying the materials right away, but I wonder whether I should buy the fluid paint or the heavy body.

Also, what size canvas board is recommended?

Thanks much.

Best,
Heidi

Hi there,
Tim doesn't recommend a canvas board size, and seems to use something close to 11x17. I would suggest a sampling of sizes, or nothing smaller than 11 inches.

And he uses the acrylics in tubes (heavy body) versus the fluid.

So glad you like this.
Enjoy your painting!
All best,
Jennifer
