Tips on Products & Supplies:
If I had to pick only a few Bible Art Journaling products, I would choose the black pens and colored pencils, and a pencil sharpener. (see products at the bottom of this post.) I would also include regular pencil, acid free glue stick and a white pen eraser.
When using the glazing liquid on Bible pages, make sure is Satin and not gloss. The gloss will tend to make the pages stick together. The sandwich wrap/deli paper shown below in the product list was used for about half of the entries shown in the video. It works well except it does not take the pen as well as another brand I bought at Cash and Carry here in the Pacific Northwest. I could not find it online so did not post it here. The name of it is First Street Sandwich Wrap and it comes in a variety of sizes. Another brand that I’ve tried which also works very well is Pac Wrap. It is also found at Cash and Carry. You may want to find out what is locally available to you.
For gluing the deli paper or any papers onto the Bible pages I use an acid free glue stick for smaller items and Yes paste for larger ones.
I use mostly fluid acrylics to paint with, and have used Golden brand for many years. They are wonderful and the transparency and intense pigment bring a luminosity to the work and allows much of the text to show through. They are expensive, but worth the investment for me. A little goes a long way. I’ve linked to the starter sets below and some suggestions that don’t come in starter sets. DecoArt Media also has a new line of fluid acrylics. I’ve found their basic colors to work well and be comparable to Golden brand and I use them interchangeably. DecoArt Media paints tend to be be a bit less expensive, but I couldn’t find the DecoArt basic starter set online, so I wasn’t able to link to it below. Though many of DecoArt colors I’ve tried are nearly identical in use as Golden, I have found that a few of the Golden colors are more intense and luminous than DecoArt Media such as Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold, Turquoise Phthalo, Quinacridone Magenta, and Iridescent Gold.
