Note: If you have any questions about the supplies don’t hesitate to call me at 651-731-5433

or  Email me at:   brushcolour@uyahoo.com   I can help you set up the palette.

Note: I recommend using quality materials if possible. They not only make painting a lot more fun,

but they give you results that you cannot achieve with lower quality materials & they usually last longer,

so the long term cost just about balances out with the cheaper materials .
