On a lighter note, it struck me recently how many art supplies I get at Home Depot, and I’m amused to share that list here:

  • odorless mineral spirits (at a fraction of the price at an art-supply store)
  • razor blades in the zillion-pack (great for scraping off the glass palette)
  • MDF boards (what I mount my canvas on for painting)
  • wall scrapers (I use a large one for spreading glue on a canvas before mounting it to the MDF panel, and a smaller one for applying molding paste when I want to texture a canvas)
  • housepaint brushes (for applying gesso)
  • latex gloves

…too bad I can’t get quarts of Gamblin paint for the price of a quart of Behr!
