What to Wear While Painting?

          • The shirt and pants that you choose to wear should be comfortable, non-restrictive, and ideal candidates for getting stained with paint. A shirt that is too loose may brush against your painted canvas or wind up with a sleeve in the paint tray. At the same time, a shirt that is too tight and restrictive will make it difficult to maneuver. Your choice of pants should have the same considerations as your shirt choice. Be prepared that your odds of getting paint on your clothes are extremely likely, so always select clothes that are old and destined for the rag pile soon anyway.

Should you go cheap with art supplies?

No.  A good brand on sale. Yes

Cheep brush will always fall
apart while painting. Cheap acrylic paints will wash off the canvas in
damp places over time or lose color.
