Shortcut to Painting Kits
Quality and Affordable: The Essentials Painting Kit
I’m not just being biased because it’s my own business, The Paint Sesh, that sells this essential painting kit. Quality is everything. You are only as good as the tools you use. I truly believe this is one of the best painting kits you will find for beginners or even hobbyists. Plus, your’e supporting a small business.
What’s included? A 12×16 canvas, 6-12 paint colors, 5 brushes, plastic apron, paper plate, paper towel, and a cardboard display easel. It has everything you need to paint your mastpiece but nothing more. Some other painting kits can be overwhelming if you new to the painting life. Did I mention we also sell glassware, blacklight, and tote bag painting kits?
All-In-One Painting Kit: Includes an Easel
Wanting an all-in-one painting kit with an easel? This is my pick. This painting kit includes 12 different acrylic paint colors, 7 Piece Nylon Hair Brush Set, 15 Piece Multipurpose Brush Set, 11×14 stretched canvas, 8×10 stretched canvas, and tabletop easel.
That’s not all this painting kit comes with some optional painting supplies as well including a plastic palette and color wheel. (Just be cautious because you might run out of paint.)
Cheap Pick: Acrylic Paint, Canvas, & Brushes
If you are looking for a painting kit that’s under $20 this is an option. Just remember sometimes cheaper isn’t always better. I specifically like this painting kit for the brushes. This painting kit includes 12 different acrylic paint colors, 6 quality brushes, and 3- 8×10 stretched canvas panels.
Great Duo: Paint and Brushes Only
Maybe you only want acrylic paint and brushes. This great duo is the one we recommend because the brushes are actually decent.
ALL The Paint Colors: Paint Only
I live my life by creating colorfully which is why I love this acrlic paint kit. I know, I know “another Paint Sesh product?” HECK YES! I love my business, my brand. I am my brand and I want my customers to have the very best. Quality is key.
The colors included: White Black, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink, Gold, and Silver.
Primary Paint Colors: Paint Only
If you only need to re-up on some paint and only want the primary colors this is our pick for best quantity and quality!
Canvas Boards: 6 Pack – 11×14
Great if you are planning on diving into painting! This 6 pack of 11×14 of flat canvas panels is a great size for both kids and adults.
Stretched Canvas Packs
Another great option if you plan on doing a lot of painting or having friends and family over for a painting party at home. With plenty of size options you can’t go wrong!
