123 Reducing costs

When painting with thick paint, when layers can be half an inch thick, it’s important to have access to good quality, inexpensive paint. In a recent post several readers made comments that alerted me to sources of very inexpensive supplies. I checked the sources and discovered they were much cheaper than the supplies I have been using. I review these price saving sources and tips in the following video (with links below).

Over time I will expand this blog entry to include other inexpensive painting supplies. I hope you will make comments and let me know of any alternative sources you may know about.

Stretched canvases up to 30″ x 40″, gallery wrap in two thicknesses: Artist Brand Canvas
