Painting is a popular craft for all ages, but the supplies needed depend on the experience level on the painter. Poster paint and washable paint are ideal for young painters because they're easy to clean up. For older painters, try acrylic paints or oil paints. Be sure to purchase a smock to prevent getting paint on your clothing. Canvas is the most popular surface for painting, but paper, glass, wood and poster board are also good options.
In addition to paint, there are many other media that artists can use to produce different effects, including colored pencils, oil pastels, chalk pastels and charcoal. For younger artists, crayons and markers are popular. Walmart also carries sketch pads, drawing boards, easels and more, all at Everyday Low Prices. Save money. Live better.
