I BOUGHT FANCY WATERCOLORS ⎝(‘◁’)⎠ Do I know how to paint? Not a fucking chance. But now that I’m learning, I can do it with fancy paints.
This brand is normally super expensive–well, at least “meant for someone who knows what they’re doing” expensive–but I found out they’re made with HONEY?? It’s there as a preservative and it also helps the paint absorb water. Old-school.
Anyway, they make a starter kit with some primaries, an orange-brown, and a grey, and it’s a freakishly good deal compared to buying all those colors on their own. I’m pretty sure they’re selling those test packs on the “first hit’s free” business model. DOESN’T MATTER; GOT PAINT
What’s all that gibberish at the bottom of my sketchbook page? Well, as soon as I found out there’s universal pigment codes for finding out exactly what makes your paint so colorful (and occasionally toxic), I sort of geeked out.
Mostly for the yellow. Fuck inorganic chemistry.
