Bob's Resource List
of Favorite Stuff for his Studio!

I am always asked at my workshops - What are my favorite art materials I work with in my studio?  So, I put together this rather complete list - from paint to paper to brushes; varnishes to mediums; barrier creams to signing pens! As I discover more products and fall in love with them, I will add to my list. These are the products and materials that work for me!

Please Note: This is not my workshop materials list. For that information, click HERE and scroll down to find the workshop you are attending. The Materials List is a PDF.
