Trip Prep 19 Getting my Art Supplies together

Newer Older

ok... getting to some really fun stuff now... this was a useful page to do as it has forced me to find some of this stuff (my study/studio is in sewing room havoc mode at the moment..) I also filled my wonderful Visconti travelling ink pot and extra ink supply (really I do not need that much ink... the same quantity did me for 11 weeks last year... this trip is a mere 3 weeks!!! though the noodlers flexs is going through ink at an alarming rate!)

Haven't fully decided or rationalised this yet... but a few extra things have appeared from last year(such as the glycerine to keep paint moist and a palette knife to prevent drilling holes and ruining my paint brush)...but I plan to avoid having to top-up on art supplies this time.

Have fun trying to decipher my scribbles - please ask questions or compare with the complete listing last year here

    Terrific layout ! How many extra bags will you need for all these art supplies ??? :o)
    I'm just wondering about what you wrote "the glycerine to keep paint moist"
    What type of glycerine do you use ?
    How do you use it ?
    Thanks for your info!

    thanks martine - apart from the backup ink supply the additional stuff fit in a wee pencil case.
    I put a drop of glycerine (bought from a drug store) into my spray bottle and if my pans (especially the tube paints) start going hard this will keep them moist.

    This is a wonderful spread, I am glad to see I am not the only one who takes so much. Now I have to do some internet searching as to products you have, that I don't. The layout is wonderful. The wipe cloth wristband would be a good thing.

    I use a nut meat picker from a nut cracker set to adjust paint in pans . . . . never thought to use the palette knife in my supply jar.

    Will it all go into one of the new bags?

    Awesome. I don't travel much. It's a job just to keep my stuff in order here. I should make myself 'the perfect bag' then maybe I will carry it about!
