Art Supply List for Qiang's Workshop
Welcome to my painting workshop. Following is a list of items you will need:
You don't have to use exactly the same brushes I use. Similar types and sizes will do.
1. Bristle Brushes
Flat #10, #8, #6, and #2 Signet, Rosemarry, Pro Stoke, or whatever band
2. Synthetic Brushes
Bright or flat 3/4", 1/2". 1/4" wide. I like Qualita Shader by Creative Mark (from Jerry's Artarana)
3. Liner Brushes
#0 Beste Liner by Creative Mark (from Jerry's)
Need one for color mixing. No special requirement.
