"Virtual Paint Nite is the best thing since sliced bread" this is what guests are saying.

You can make art with anything! But in this post I’ll go over the exact supplies needed to do an at home paint and sip party! So you can get your art on all the time!

The Materials

  • Paint
  • Brushes
  • Canvas
  • Cup for Water
  • Rag or Paper towels
  • Paper plate or pallet

Yep that’s it! You can get fancy and grab more materials but this is the bare bones art supplies you’ll need and half of them you already have laying around the house! Lets take a closer look at the materials to make sure you get the best stuff (what I use and yes I’m biased lol).

Paint

You want to get MEDIUM BODY STUDENT GRADE ACRYLIC PAINT! This is not the same as CRAFT PAINT and I don’t recommend craft paint because it is not pigment rich and will yield chalky and dull paint that will dry very quickly and flak off your canvas.

Colors & Shades

  • Red- Primary Magenta, or Crimson
  • Blue – Primary Cyan, Cobalt or Phthalo Blue
  • Yellow – Lemon Yellow or Primary Yellow
  • White – Titanium White
  • Black – Mars Black

The reason I recommend these paints can be better understood in my FREE Color Mixing Tutorial. Watch it NOW!

Brushes

  • Large 1 ” Square (wash, flat or Bright)
  • Medium Square 1/2″ or #6 (bright)
  • Small Round #2 or #4 recommended

Brushes are pretty straight forward and you want to add to your set as you learn new styles and techniques. I recommend the white or golden taklon, or make sure the brushes are listed as suitable for acrylic paints.

Canvas

  • Panel Canvas 12 x 16 or 16 x 20
  • Wrapped Canvas 12 x 16 or 16 x 20

Either of these two options will be perfect. The panel canvas will save space and usually cost far less. I’m usually painting on a wrapped canvas, these tend to absorb moister a little better and you can hang them on the wall from a nail as is.

If you would like to use another size that will be awesome! Keep in mind that most of the Paint Nite artwork designs are in the 16 x 20 or 12 X 16 aspect ratio so if you choose a square canvas it will alter the design and may or may not work well.

I hope that you feel more confidant about what to get. Now let’s paint!
