First few things I picked up were the big set of erasers, since I always seem to lose the ones I have, so I thought buying a couple wouldn't do me any harm, they cost me only £1. The next thing was the A3 Sketch pad, I picked this up so I could experiment of bigger pieces and adding in lots of details to backgrounds. I also want to use it to practice my painting skills because I haven't really painted at all since high school art classes, although I really enjoyed it. Tying into that I picked up this watercolours paint set from Royal and Langnickel, it only cost a couple of pounds and I didn't want to fork out for better quality paints until I know I'll make good use of them and learn how to properly paint and colour to a satisfying standard. And along with that yet again, how can I hope to paint without any brushes to paint with? So I picked up a set from the same brand as the watercolours, I think you can work out why.
The most expensive thing I got in the whole haul was these Copic Marker pens. I bought 3 sets but one of them were for Pre-order and have yet to arrive, but I don't mind waiting. All 3 sets are apart of the Copic Ciao brand. The first set on the left as you can see is the Manga 2 set (of 4/5 sets I believe). I picked it for the nice range of bright colours along with a great liner pen, The colours from left to right are:
E21- a lovely peachy skin colour
B45- a light pastel blue
BG49- an aqua green colour
R05- a bright baby blue
R59- a bright true red
The colours are all super true to their appearance and are great quality.
The second set on the right is called the 'Scrap & Stempel set 2' The colours in this set are much more pastel and has a bigger ranges but are still super pretty, the colours are:
E57: a basic brown
RV95: a purple tinted pink colour
G21: A muddy ivy green
E51: a yellow toned skin colour
B93: a basic blue colour
0: Blender pen
The two sets are both amazing Quality, though as these markers are always highly praised as markers for professionals it's not much of a surprise. They cost me £13.50 each, which isn't too bad for 6 marker pens. I already adore them and can't wait to keep improving myself and increasing my collection of them.
Any good art products you've bought recently? or stationary bits?
Let me know down in the comments!
Much love guys!
