Scruffy Art Supplies

Last updated August 2018

“Scruffy Art Supplies” is the term I use for my handmade paints and tools for sale in the shop, using natural materials found (mostly) locally.

If you love the idea of natural, earthy art supplies but want to skip the DIY portion to focus on your painting, maybe this is for you.

Colourways: will happen mostly according to season when I’m using plants, but I do take wishes and requests. Everything is extremely limited edition at the moment, as I’m mainly producing these materials for my own use and thought it would be fun to share.

  • Watercolour pans
  • Wax crayons / oilbars
  • Plant based ink
  • Plant pigment powder
  • Fun, coarse twig brushes
  • Paper from recycled and plant materials
  • Bits of handwoven fabric ideal for collage and embellishments
  • Ditto wool and yarn
  • Whatever else I think up along the way

I make a point of repurposing whichever shipping materials arrive here, instead of adding cute, pristine boxes and fancy froufrou to your waste bin and the price of your items. You may also occasionally find bits of organic matter in your paint that I have failed to filter out in my very rustic and slightly too small studio – it is what it is, but nevertheless I hope you find my offerings enjoyable. 🙂
