Tips To Help You Save Money When Buying Art Materials

  • Try and stick to one store so that you become a regular client. This means that you can walk up to the counter and ask if they have a special discount for repeat clients. In the event that the store does not accommodate this you can always find another store, even if you have to drive a few minutes further away.

Be mindful as to how much paint is needed and how much you actually put on your palette. You can buy tubes of glazes, which are very thin and can be stretched easily. If the art needs texture, use some old newspaper, fibrous paper or used paper so that you don’t need to buy textured paint to make your work have the desired effect.
