Note: If you have any questions about the supplies don’t hesitate to call me at 651-731-5433
or Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org 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 .
