I'm quite often asked what I use to paint quilts - which types of paint, which brushes etc. Well here's a photo of the basics.
The paint is acrylic. I don't use mediums or anything else with it except water. I use a variety of paint depending on what I have and what I can buy locally.
I mix my paint on disposable palettes, perhaps using 3 or 4 in a sitting. The biggest brush you can see is my favourite and I do most of the painting with this. The small brush is for detail, and the others for washes and edges. (Having said that, I do have 7 jam jars stuffed with paintbrushes and I wouldn't part with any of them!!)
