This list details most of the tools I use to make art in specific mediums. Although I do use specific tools when working both traditionally and digitally, please remember I am primarily a mixed media artist. I rarely use one type of media in any of my work as I prefer the results I achieve when combining them.
When working with traditional materials, I keep their archival qualities in mind. If something is archival, it is especially permanent, durable, or acid-free with resistance to weathering and fading. Under the best of conditions, archival works can potentially last around 200 years before any noticeable shift in color integrity occurs.
The issue of permanence is complex, however, and depends on several variables that must be carefully accounted for when creating work meant to be archival. I explore these issues in depth on my blog.
