Gotta love cheap paint (if it’s good!)

Hi friends! I hope you are all having a stress free time if you are preparing for the holidays, I spent yesterday shopping which was fun and today cleaning (which was not) and I am so tired tonight! But it will be totally worth it when we host Christmas eve this year. We will have the live show tomorrow at 12:30pm Eastern time if you want to mark your calendar or “click the bell” on YouTube to be reminded of it and I am really looking forward to that! For now though, I want to share some wicked cheap paint I found! I bought this set of 24 watercolor tablets (plus one tube of white gouache and brush) for $5 at Ocean State Job Lot in Bangor last week. Let’s see how they perform!


I really liked this set and for $5 there is not a thing I can complain about, well, the brush was bad but the paint and palette was awesome! Here is what I like about the Phoenix Arts watercolor set:

  • Vivid colors
  • Semi opaque *you can make them more opaque by using the white)
  • Lifts well
  • Layers nicely
  • Great flow
  • Blends well

Watch for a poppy flower painting tutorial coming up in a day or two with these paints, they were so fun to use and a steal of a deal, I think I will snag some more up to give as gifts! Oh speaking of gifts the last HUGE sale of the year just went live on Craftsy, all classes are $19.99 or less so it is a great inexpensive last-minute gift for someone on your list (or yourself!)
