Re: New and looking for supplies advice.

Other places to find supplies are garage sales, estate sales, freecycle, (post a "want" ad) craigslist, thrift stores, mobile home parks when the snowbirds are leaving.

I too am frugal and learning, and often use cardboard or paperboard (food boxes), scrap paper to practice on. For practice, and to work out the idea or plan.

FYI, everyone, I've seen HL 40% off coupons in the Sunday newspaper here.

that is right, I meant PR254 in WN Bright Red and Remb. Perm Red Deep.

Rembrandt won't use any pigments but the most lightfast, so no napthols or hansa yellows which most others still use.
