Art Supplies in Canada
The Painting Experience sells brushes and paper that can be mailed to US addresses.
Paints: The paints we use in the workshop are a Liquid Tempera Watercolor Paint. We have used a high quality paint called Prang, Professional Brand now discontinued, so now we recommend the following:
In the US:
On Vancouver Island, you can get Schola at Impressions Custom Framing in Campbell River. In Courtenay they carry FunStuff at PJ Crafts which we do not recommend. In Nanaimo at Michael’s Craft Store they carry Rich Art Tempera Paints, which are OK. Chromatemp is the preferred brand for Western Canada.
You can contact Annie Rousseau to obtain some of this paper. Or you can ask at your art store for the closest substitute, like Plainfield, Mayfair Cover, or Strathmore.
***The important thing is you want a paper about the 20x26, with a Vellum finish, and at least 65# weight but preferably 80#, so it won’t buckle when it gets wet, and doesn't cost too much.
Brushes: Brushes can be ordered from our website or you can buy them when attending one of our workshops. Inexpensive brushes called Royal Grip may be available at your local art/craft store or contact Annie to obtain brushes.
