Art Supplies

This is a list of all my favourite art supplies. From pencils and sharpeners through to drawing tablets. I’ve only added things I’ve tried and tested myself!

Happy shopping!

Microsoft Surface ProThe drawing tablet I use

Faber Castell Coloured Pencils – Good old fashioned colouring pencils that do a good job.

Faber Castell Graphite Sketch Pencils – for cool looking sketches with depth.

Faber Castell Pastel Pencils – My fave brand for pastel pencils. Go on smooth and don’t break when you sharpen them (well, much….)

Prismacolor Pencils – Super creamy pencils for creating bold colour. You’ll love how them feel on paper. So smooth!

Canson Pastel Matte Paper Assorted Colours – The best paper to use with pastels. Try different colours to see which one suits you the best. I still draw on white but drawing on a darker colour really makes the pastels POP! You also spend more time shading skin that way.

Canson Pastel Matte Paper Larger Size, Grey Tones – Same as above but larger in size.

Faber Castell Sharpener for Pastels and Graphite – Ok, if you use pastel pencils you will go through sharpeners like crazy (unless you sharpen with a knife, which I don’t). This one fits the pastel pencil range above and gets a super fine point. Just buy a million because they get blunt quickly.

Faber Castell Compass – If you invest in a compass, trust me, don’t get a crap one otherwise it will move mid-circle and ruin the circle. This one is affordable and doesn’t move.

Faber Castell Eraser Pen With Refills – I use my eraser pen WAY more than a regular eraser because I do such detailed work. Faber Castell erasers don’t leave smudge marks and erase cleanly. There’s NOTHING worse than a crap eraser that makes more mess than it removes.

Faber Castell Regular Eraser – Good regular rectangular eraser that works.

PS: Yes I love Faber Castell. I’ve tried other quality brands but keep going back to them because they are just so good for a reasonable price.
