When painting there are some common extra tools you will need, regardless of the paint. A pot to wash your brushes in is essential, this will help prevent unwanted colour mixing- especially if you have a small brush collection. You can either buy a pot or simply use a clean cup, yoghurt pot or jar.
Kitchen paper is also another essential, this will help clean up any spillages and can be used to add interesting textures within your paintings.
Masking Tape is another essential for painting, it can be used to create straight lines and a clean frame for your designs.
Depending on the paint you choose, a palette may also be required. If using tubed paints a palette is necessary to place your paints on and to be used for colour mixing. These can be purchased easily.
A set of palette knives and tools can also be very helpful. They can be used for colour mixing and they can also be used to create different textures, details and effects within your paintings.
