List Friday - Top 10 Hobby Supplies

This week's "List Friday" theme posted at Pomegranates & Paper is "Top 10 Hobby Supplies". Here are the supplies I tend to use no matter what I happen to be working on...

  • Canvas & canvas board - for collages & paintings ranging in sizes from 4 in. x 4 in. up to 24 in. x 36 in. I prefer these as bases for collages because they can take a lot more abuse than paper.
  • Acrylic paint - DecoArt & Golden, especially the Metallics, Pearls, Iridescents & Transferences.
  • Fabric paint - Jacquard (Lumiere & Neopaque)
  • Beads - seed beads, bugle beads, lampwork beads, crystals, ceramic beads... You get the picture.
  • Dichroic glass
  • Fabric - batiks
  • Collage papers - mulberry, lace paper, marbled papers, rice papers
  • Ephemera - vintage photos, sheet music, wallpaper, postcards, foreign newspapers
  • Yarns, embroidery threads & assorted fibers
  • Acrylic mediums - gold mica, black mica, fibers, glass beads, etc.
