Art Supplies I Used To LOVE… But Now I HATE (& Vice Versa)

Art Supplies I Used To LOVE… But Now I HATE (& Vice Versa)


Hey guys, it’s…a little zoomed in here. *laughs* It’s Rae here. Welcome back to my channel, and welcome to a video that has been long overdue. I really wanted to make this video because it’s very important that I’m always open with you guys, honest with you guys… Now as you guys know, I have been on YouTube now for three whole years, and in three years, you know, a lot could happen! For example: *Music* So maybe this video will save you a little bit of coin, maybe it’ll give you more of an idea of my art process, things I do like, things I don’t like. And yeah, you guys know I don’t like short intros so… *Clicking noise* OK, hello, hi. Before we jump right in to it, again, I think it’s very important that I say that all of this is just like, personal preferences. As you all know, there’s not one single way to do art, which is something that I love about art. So… this first one, I think you guys are gonna be shooketh. I used to love this product but now… I don’t know, this art supply just kinda stopped doing it for me. And these are the Prismacolor uh, Ver-e-thin? Very thin? *Splat!* Prismacolor Premier colored pencils. And these technically aren’t colored pencils, they are literally pencils that are colored if that makes sense. And these pencils are VERY different than just like, the re- *burps* Scuse me. Ooh! *laughs* Oh! Very different than just like, the regular Prismacolor Premier. And if you don’t know, with these pencils you can sharpen them to an absolute fine point. They’re made for like, really heavy detail. Now, these have a very similar formula to like, my loves. *Imitates heavenly singing*Ahhh! Faber-Castell! Ahhh! Polychromos! Ahhhh! These are like, the best of both worlds. It works just as good as a Prismacolor, but yet it has like, that hard formula that you’ll find in these Premier colored pencils, you know? And these are about the same price with both of them being about $18 apiece, but to me, the crowning difference that make these well worth it is that the barrel is SO much larger than just like, the regular colored pencil. So therefore – that ain’t gonna do anything to it, but if I do this – you know, I might have just broke, you know, everything that’s in there. And by the way, I have never had a Polychromos lead break on me, and that’s saying a lot, cause I’m like, really heavy-handed. So, I don’t know. These are just like magical worldly beans and, I just never ever reached for these and in fact, I’m thinking about donating these because I don’t use them, hardly at all. So yeah. If you’re looking for a really dry, non-waxy formula that’s very pigmented, these babies all the way. *Whoosh* All right, so the next thing that I just used to LOVE, love, love, love but now I’m just like, “Girrrrl…” and that’s pretty much everything that you can get at Dollar Tree. *sighs* When I was a struggling artist, you know, I used to go to Dollar Tree ALL the dang time for their stuff. (Younger Rae): Next I got these mechanical pencils. I personally get all my mechanical pencils from Dollar Tree, so I know these will be good. But it’s just so easy to break. It’s just so un-pigmented, it’s not a good investment long-term. Some of this stuff I never use, like for example, these miniature colored pencil pastel pencils, like what would I ever use these pastel pencils for, you know? It’s so much more worth it to just go to Walmart and buy some like, $3 Crayolas than it is to buy all of this, you know what I’m saying? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I did a video on cheap art supplies, on stuff that I strictly still love at Dollar Tree, which I will link down below and probably in the card up above. But just in general, most of their art products are a mist – a mist? *laughs* a MISS! And I just kind of gave up even trying anything from them nowadays. You know? Sorry, Dollar Tree. We had some good times but you know…this ain’t it, sis. *”The Price is Right” losing theme* Alright, so now for this next one, I think you guys are gonna be a little bit surprised, and this one is like, hella hella hella preference. So one thing that doesn’t really work out for me that much is … canvas. *Crowd gasping* Just like a normal, stretched canvas that has like, the, the thing on it. *Ding* Once I started drawing on masonite and painting on masonite, it was just like a game-changer, you know what I’m saying? Now with canvas for me personally, I don’t really like the bounce that you get. *Canvas flapping* I don’t like how it’s so easily bendable. If you press too hard accidentally… *tap tap tap* you’ll get that indentation in the back because you’re pressing too hard. Once I switched over to masonite, it was like a whole new ball game. And like, I’ve switched all of my friends over to masonite because it is just so… in my opinion, for what I do, it’s just so much more superior. You can get it textured, you can get it smooth… it has like, a much harder *knock knock knock* surface. It’s much more sturdier for us heavy-handed people. And you guys saw the video when I made this piece, I put a butt-ton of chemicals, I beat this sucker up, and it’s still like, in perfect condition, ya know? It’s so much more versatile, you know, you can erase as hard as you want, as light as you want and nothing really’s gonna happen because it’s literal board! *knock knock knock* Plus, you can get masonite at pretty much any hardware store that you want. *Buzzing noise* A lot of the times at the crafts store, it’s already pre-primed, so you can just paint right on it. I highly, highly, highly recommend trying to paint on masonite. It’s a total game-changer for a lot of people and you might like it yourself! So, ten out of ten. Love it. Alright, so now we’re gonna switch it up a little bit, we’ll do like a little transition right here. The products that I’m about to mention, at one point I could not stand but now…we stan. *laughs* Literally the worst joke ever. Okay, I’m sorry. I’m sorry! Now this next art supply for a long time I was not a fan of, but slowly but surely it won me over, and this is a water squeezable pen. And so the reason that I just was like, not having it when I first got these is because the ones I had, they would just like, drip all over the place and the water would go everywhere. But these ones are a little bit more high quality, you control when it drips… that’s what she said. And you don’t have to worry about constantly dipping it in, dipping it out, dipping it in, because it’s right here. It’s ready to go. When you need to clean it, you literally just – *Sucks breath in* and it’s like clean. Boom. So yeah. I feel like most of you guys have used these before and yeah, they’re just like a really easy, clean way to do watercolor. *Whoosh* So, moving on to this next one, I’m just gonna say it right now. At this point, I have embarrassed myself in front of DrawingWiffWaffles, Chloe Rose Art, pretty much literally millions of people. Because just a few months ago I was sure, SURE that I hated this product. But now, I’ve given it a second chance, I’ve used it in various ways, and now my life has changed. I love… kneaded erasers. Now for a while, I couldn’t explain why somebody would like kneaded erasers. Like, I didn’t understand what really was the point of these, you know. It doesn’t erase as efficiently as like, a regular pencil. You had to squish em down, and then as soon as you would apply pressure, it would squish right back down. But ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you… *Faraway voice* Let me tell you. Whenever you’re doing an illustration, a painting, a drawing, anything that you don’t want fully erased, like, it casually picks up all the extra pigment that you don’t want mixing with your paint. A regular eraser, as so, it’ll completely erase everything. But this, it has LEVELS to how it erases. And afterwards, it leaves this beautiful guided line. And by the way, one thing that I just absolutely, incredibly, love about these is that you can get these for SO CHEAP! Like, for example, let me look on AliExpress right now. Oh heck yeah! Okay, so on AliExpress you can get them for literally $1.00, $1.07, $1.19… and you can do what I do, where I mush, like, all of mine together and I made like, this really giant one. And that is something I think we all can appreciate. Plus, they’re like, so fun! Look at this! *Old-fashioned piano music* And finally this brings us to the very last art supply, and this one is one that I used to like, but now – eh. I’m just not very fond of it anymore. In fact, I made a whole video on this, and I really did like it at the time, and I still do like it, it’s just not for me. And that product is the Chameleon Marker Color Tones. Now, if you don’t know what these markers are, they’re basically like a really cool niche product. Like, you mix the inks together, you get this like, really awesome gradient. It’s a really cool concept. But, I guess the problems just kinda came through more and more as I started using these more and more. These markers, first of all, you know, they’re just so big so it’s kind of impractical for like, storage. So yeah, here’s a difference between like, a regular Ohuhu marker and the size of these. Whoops! And another issue that I ran into was the markers just having so…many…pieces. So this marker alone, for example: one, two, three, FOUR different pieces in this marker alone! And if you multiplied that four times the 20 colors that are in here, that’s a lot of pieces to keep track of! And as of recently, there has been a new competitor that’s out on the market that’s much cheaper than these markers. And I feel like these are a really cool novelty, but as far as like, an investment goes, for $50, unless you really, really know what you want, I just can’t see these being a long-term kind of thing. And anyway guys, thank you so much again for watching, of course I have my Art Instagram which I have been working hard at, and yeah, with that being said guys, thank you so much again for watching. If there’s an art supply that you used to love and now you hate or used to hate and now you love, let me know. And with that being said guys, thank you so much again for watching, I will see you in the next video. Bye! *End music*

  1. Hey everyone! I’m trying to grow my art Instagram and have been working hard on it. If you’d like to check it out, that’d be neat!!! My Instagram is @Rae_Dizzle_

    Toodeloo!

  2. You loved 🤣🤣

  3. Heh, you put chages

  4. When she said “i don’t like short intros” I was like …what?

  5. There was a point where I hated all color pencils with a passion because none of the ones sold in my country had enough pigment…. Then I was introduced to prismacolors…. And MY LIFE CHANGEDDDDD

  6. At the start u accidentally said u hate short intros. When it’s vise versa.

  7. Art application chages me english good ( this is a joke keep up the good work 🙂

  8. The reason the Polychromos´ leads don´t break is the way that Faber Castell makes their pencils/colored pencils. They don´t just put the lead in, they make the lead bond with the wood all the way through, using a special glue. In German it is called "Sekular Verleimung" which essentially means "secure bonding" or, if you translate it literally "secure glueing". Sometimes Faber Castell (colored) pencils have "SV" on them to show that they are securely bonded. But even the ones that do not have the SV are made that way (the Goldfaber, for example. ) If you are curious about what exactly it looks like, you can go here https://www.faber-castell.de/service/warenkundehandbuch It´s in German, but there is a diagram in there that shows how they make their pencils. And yes, this special bonding works great, I have also never had a Faber Castell break on me. Edit: Someone here said that you should make a book, teaching people how to start drawing/learn to draw , and I think so, too. Will you make a book please? I´d buy it.
