Hey guys so today I have brought you guys a watercolor blog! Lately I have been OBSESSING over watercolors and I thought I would show you guys what it I use most of the time and the mess after words :D

First you will need Watercolor!
Mine is just a REALLY cheap pallet from the artist loft brand which was about $4.99.. you can buy it here. It works really well especially for beginners just like me. Another reason why I love water color is because it is MUCH cheaper than acrylic paint.
Next you will need Paint brushes!
I just keep mine in a mason jar (I love the way it looks!)... I have collected my paint brushes for about 6 or more years. I used to buy a lot of the little packs of them which you can buy here! Some of my paint brushes do shed because they are so old and they came in random things like the little painting "coloring" books haha.
Another big thing is Watercolor Paper
I normally use Strathmore but at the time I was loving the Artist's Loft brand! I got this one from here.

Here is a painting on this type of paper

(Optional) Hair Dryer
This blow dryer is SOO old... it used to be my moms then she gave it to me and as you can probably tell I use it for crafts. You can definatly use any type of blow dryer. The only reason why I needed a hair dryer is because I don't like waiting for my watercolor to dry!
A cup/mug  

I have this little cup that I got for $1.50! It is a really nice size for little doodles :D
White Gouache or White Acrylic Paint
I just used my White acrylic paint by craft smart to add stars! (I mixed it with a little bit of yellow watercolor). You can buy this here! P.S. It is really cheap  :D
Here is the mess afterwards!

I really recommend you to put underneath your painting because it can get a bit messy! I have a cutting board that you can buy here.

Well I hope you guys enjoyed this and I hope I helped :D Oh and if you guys want me to do a video on all my art supplies please go an subscribe to my youtube channel :D
