Artist Shop Wal-Mart Arts & Crafts
Wal-Mart sells everything under the sun and so many departments have useful tools for artist. Not everyone know where to go and find useful cheap tools for their art studio. I hope that as you walk through Wal-Mart with me you will be inspired.
Wal-Mart has a few isles for their arts and crafts, but they give little attention to the artist. They carry one main brand Daler Rowney, which we use in the studio all the time. The brushes will last with proper care and maintenance, like any more expensive brand.
Daler Rowney Simply Stretched Canvas have held up in my studio for years. I have never seen Wal-Mart run a sale on their canvas, that is a disappointment to me but its whatever. Most of their canvas come in a package of two or three. I like working with these because they are pre primed with gesso.
If your just starting and you're not sure want you'll need to begin paint then go for one of the oil or acrylic sets. The Daler Rowney Simply Watercolor Mini Set features six basic colors that can be used to paint on all conventional watercolor surfaces such as the Simply Watercolour Pad.
Girls Love Hardware
Wal-Mart has no idea how much we girls love their hardware department and all the really cool tools it has to offer the artist.
Go to the paint isle your next trip and take a look at all the many different paint brushes they have to offer. We the proper care these brushes will last. I guess the real difference is they are all made with synthetic fibers but they work great for all kinds of art mediums.
Buy the contractors putty knife to for Mixing Paint Colors. They make awesome Pallet Knifes in the art studio.
You will find Mineral Spirits to clean your art brushes in the hardware too.
I find so much there, I just love the hardware dept. for artist.

The baking isle has great tools for paper mache clay lovers like us. Baking molding pans can make great mold for ART anything. I have seen what the "Cake Boss" can do with a few baking tools, he is a delicious artist. LOL
