I see that a link to Amazon for the 36-color set of Liquitex is provided. I am just starting the course and want to make sure I have all of the colors I need, without getting a bunch of colors I do not need. Would the 12 or 24 color sets provide all of the colors I need for this painting? Thanks for your help!
Ben Saber
No. The Amazon package does not guarantee all the colors you need for this painting. The list of colors and the link where to buy them is shown in this lesson's attachment. The website is honest, trustworthy. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Shari F
I understand that I need to mix colors. Are you saying that, even if I buy the 36-color set, I won't have all of the different paints you used?
Ben Saber
If you purchase a package of paint you are going to have some different colors that I do not use...The link to Amazon was put there by the Curious staff without my knowledge. I would like to know where it is so that I can remove it. Would you please let me know? Thank you
Shari F
The link is on the first video/class. There is a paperclip with a 1 next to it. Click on that. Can you tell me what colors you used in this painting?
Ben Saber
I have added the list of colors needed on the paper clip of the lessons. Please let me know if the link is working. Thank you
Shari F
The link is working. Thank you so much! Now I have my shopping list. ;-)
Ben Saber
Please note that each lesson might have additional colors listed. Thanks
Shari F
I am trying to gather all of the colors I will need for this painting. I am hoping to paint this this weekend. Is there anyway you could post a complete list?
Ben Saber
The complete list is on the first lesson attachments.
