Hi friends!I get a lot of questions about what supplies to get for acrylic painting for beginners. I think it’s time to share all my favorite beginner friendly tools and products so you can get started! If this is your first time on my blog I’d love for you to read a little more about my DIY journey here. Perhaps, you already paint but need a tutorial for how to display your art on a ledge. Friends, you are at the right place!

find this painting tutorial on my Instagram highlights!

Now that we’re all at home, this is the best time to pick up the new hobby you’ve always wanted to try and acrylic painting is easy enough for anyone to get into. All you need is some paint, brushes, paper or canvas, and some water! That’s it. If you want to try getting into more advanced techniques like adding texture to painting you can always get a bottle of gesso to add to your kit and a few palette knives to start out with.

Another really fun thing I found on amazon is ready made paint by numbers kits for adults! They are all in one kits with all the paints and supplies included to make one masterpiece. If you’re more into experimenting with paint and texture then I highly suggest picking up the supplies listed below. I have put together some of the best budget and beginner friendly acrylic painting supplies that are all available on Amazon! I included two options for paint sets, I myself use Winsor and Newton as well as Golden paints but they can get pricey. Liquitex Basics is just as good a brand for starting out.

You might have noticed that I listed canvas panels instead of actual framed canvas – that’s because canvas panels are much most cost effective for practicing and making your first few paintings on. You can still put them in a frame to look like an actual thicker framed canvas painting.

Please feel free to ask me any questions on Instagram about acrylic painting supplies or techniques! I’ll be more than happy to help you out! Now go fill up your cart and get started with your own acrylic masterpieces!
