Nice haul! I tried a small selection of water-mixable oils once and didn't like them; just couldn't get them to behave the way I wanted. But I've seen other people do great things with them so I'm sure you'll have fun I have been tempted to pick up a small (maybe 6) set of Sennelier Oil pastels to try them out, but haven't got around to it yet. I really like the Mungyo and Neopastel oil pastels I have so it's not 'urgent' lol

Today, my order from Jerry's arrived As usual, my furry art studio supervisor had to inspect it for his approval...


In the foreground is one of those little eco-waterbottles Jerry's threw in. From left to right on the chair seat are:
  • 120 Soho Urban Artist half stick soft pastels
  • 24 Soho Urban Artist Acrylics (2 sets, one for me, one for my Nan)
  • 12 Soho Urban Artist Gouache
  • 3 Turner Acryl Gouache (free sample set)
  • 12 Lukas Gouache
  • 8 tubes of Atelier Interactive acrylics (including some metallics for my special effects/fantasy paintings)
In the back are two sets of Ebony Splendor brushes (I already have some of these for my watercolours but I love them so much I wanted a set for my acrylics as well) and two tubs of Atelier Interactive Titanium White that Jerry's threw in for free because I got 6 or more tubes (they made a boo-boo here, I'm pretty sure I should have only got one free tub but I'm not complaining)

Now I get to unwrap it all... But first I have to stop the idiot dog from climbing into the big box it came in

Rebecca, I'm green over those Lukas gouache

Regarding the water mixable oils, apparently some brands are better than others in terms of handling. Artisan by W&N is one of the most problematic ones from what I've read...We'll see how these behave. What brand did you use before?

Actually, the ones I used were Artisan, so that could explain a lot haha Granted I only had three colours; ultramarine blue, cad red dark and raw sienna (I got them cheap at the university book shop just to try them) but I don't know if it was the quality of the paints or just my incompetence with oils; either way, we didn't get along

Re: Art Supply Addicts Anonymous for 2012

I have my latest haul. Not pictured is a bottle of liquitex clear gesso. Attached is picture of supplies from KAMA. A set of small oil sticks to try out. I have wondered how much the difference is between them and OP. Also is the "professional" trial box of aqua dispersions. I got a few of these before but I wanted to expand the color selection (I make pigmented ink with them) but was unsure which shades I wanted more than others. So the full set it was. Any one bottle will last me a while. I also can use them with clear gesso for coloring it. Red ochre makes a great base color. I have been using these with the golden ground with great results.

Rick
