My Painting set up and must have gadgets
The essential basic kit
Top Tools I wouldn’t be without
Every time I do a workshop or a live demo I am asked about my painting set up so I’ve taken the time to list what I use and where I got them.
Ikea trolley – FORHOJA kitchen trolley, Only €100 and pretty much fits it all, I have three Ikea boxes on the bottom shelf and an Ikea utensil tray on the top shelf for additional storage tidy up. There are also two drawers to keep my mirror and other everyday used items. I hang a paper bag off one side to use as a bin and keep my brushes in plastic Ikea glasses attached to the other side.
Easel – This is the one I use. Actually, I have a couple of these and recently took a notion to paint one yellow! I also hang my kitchen roll off the easel for ease of use.
Ipad holder – Very sturdy and flexible iPad holder. Fits any size iPad.
iPhone holder – This is a new purchase. It’s a hands-free attachment that I clip to the trolley. It simply holds the phone up so I can answer calls or play music or podcasts without me getting paint all over it or constantly putting it down and losing it!
Somewhere to sit – essential!
