Hey everyone so in today’s video, I’m gonna be testing out some art supplies from wish and today’s video is sponsored by wish so wish Thank you so so much for supporting my channel I’m sure most of you have heard of wish by now But if you haven’t it’s an online shop that has so many Products available and they are super affordable because they come directly from the manufacturers You can browse their website on desktop or you can download their app. It is very very easy to use they have a huge selection of items everything from clothing to Accessories to art supplies like what we’re using in this video You can find almost anything even some really strange and unique products It’s fun to browse the app and just see what you can find and see what deals you can snag They are very reliable and provide good customer service and they do have an express shipping option Which is good for when you need things really quickly You can get Express shipping on any item that has that little orange truck icon next to it And it will arrive in three to seven days. So download the wish app and see what you can find So the first item I have here is a pencil case as you can see it is huge There are several zipper pouches And a little handle and when you open it up you have a bunch of slots for pencils or thin markers liners Whatever you want to put in here It has a hundred and eighty-four slots. So you can fit a lot of stuff in here. This one is just really nice though I really like the feel of the outside. It’s just very nice quality It’s big enough that it can fit the full length pencils horizontally so you can jam pack a lot into here zippers work Well, they’re easy to close It’s very cute kind of looks like a purse, okay. Oh and this one was $16 now I have another one that is very similar. But smaller. I think I like the turquoise one better But if you’re looking for something a little more portable, this is pretty good. The zippers are very easy to undo and it’s a very similar layout inside except that the pencils will sit vertically instead of horizontally and this one has 72 slots here. You see some larger slots for other items like erasers, or maybe it’s just a marker anything That’s thicker. This pencil case here was $9 and here’s how it looks with the pencils. So next up. I have a couple sketchbooks here This one is pink and has a faux leather style cover And then inside there are a couple different paper types This one has dots which you could use for bullet journaling or whatever you want I would just sketch directly over this and then you have the craft paper which also has some subtle dots on it the paper and This one is definitely on the thin side. So I would use it more for sketching or taking notes Not so much for any kind of wet medium like markers or paints and this one was four dollars The other one is a little more heavy-duty you can see it has a cloth cover There is a wooden pencil which is actually holding the whole thing close So if you pull this out and you can open up a sketchbook It even has an extra little pouch here. So you can put some other materials in it other pencils pens, whatever you want and The paper in this one is thicker than the other one and this is just a plain Sketchbook with no docks or anything on it. There are so many pages. Look at this bad boy So I will be trying these out I’m not just gonna flip through them, but we need to move on and look at the next supply first This is gonna be a journey where I create art throughout the video when I was browsing through which I came across To millimeter pencil led because by the way, I picked out all these supplies I looked through a website and picked the ones I wanted to use So I was very intrigued by this 2 millimeter LED I’ve used 0.7 millimeter and 0.5 but never 2 millimeter. The pencil is very high quality This is metal. And this is a nice thick plastic like it doesn’t feel cheap E+ on the end here you can twist this around and it’ll show a different value for the lid So for example that says to be it’s a bit reflective hard to see on camera I don’t know if the side view is any better but you can twist this to denote which type of let it is so to be B2h, so if you have different varieties of lead and different pencils, it’s a way of labeling them Then here is the lead I don’t have any lead in the pencil just yet. Look at these thick boys Stick it in there. Oh, wait, is there already some in there? Oh There is sorry Jonny it is not your time yet See right now it has a very fine point to it I want to wear it down to see what it’s like when the lead is not brand new It feels like a wooden pencil in mechanical pencil Format because it’s about the same thickness as a regular wooden pencil. I’m gonna wear it down with some sandpaper It’s a lot faster Wow way faster, holy smokes, okay It’s very smooth – I mean I can partially beat the paper you get the feel of a wooden pencil With the convenience of a mechanical pencil the pencil and lead came together and it cost three dollars Thank you wish for sponsoring this video now. Let’s move on to the next item so next I got these gel pen cartridges and this set here was 95 cents and that is for 24 colors and we need to put these into some barrels. So I ordered a bunch of barrels to This set of barrels was $2, we popped the cap off and unscrew this This is giving me flashbacks to my custom marker video screw this back on Yeah, and then we have a gel pen cool It’s handy because you can replace the ink when it runs out, but you can reuse the barrels. So let’s make a few more here All righty, my pens are all assembled let’s distance watching Squiggle squiggle. Oh that that’s bribe right though. That’s nice. That’s very nice. This is definitely a hot pink Neon pink why are there exclamation marks on all them? I don’t know. We’re just excited about the bends I guess I don’t know how accurate some of these color names are. But that’s just what I’m gonna call them I just want to see how some of these work on the craft paper. Oh Yes. Oh, yes I wonder if the neon ones will show up. Oh Yes, they do They are very opaque. So now I want to sketch out an actual idea something we can color in later Okay, I finally Decided on an idea. This is just a rough sketch I’m gonna do the actual sketch on a separate piece of paper so that it’s easier to trace it. Later So now that I’ve finally come up with an idea of what to draw I need to trace this sketch onto other paper Because this is just regular computer printer paper. I’m gonna trace it on to some watercolor paper. How am I gonna do that? You ask well, I have a light box It’s about 11 and 3/4 inches by 15 and 3/4 inches So it’s pretty big but it is Extremely flat this doesn’t even look like a light box Seriously, it is so thin and look at where it plugs in. So teeny-tiny So to turn it on you just lightly tap the power button and boom it’s on and if you hold down the button It doesn’t actually press it’s just capacitive touch It’ll dim so you can set it to whatever brightness you want. And if I hold it down again, it lightens back up So if you wanted add about half brightness Just hold it down a little bit till it gets to your desired brightness and let go so here’s how it looks with Cardstock on top, of course how well you can see through is also dependent on how bright the room is I have quite a few lights on right now This is with some watercolor paper Here’s how my line art now looks I decided to use blue for it the lightbox worked great and it’s only $24 Mike What a lightbox for that big for $24. So we have our line art next step. We need to color it So it’s a good thing. I grabbed some coloring supplies from wish thank you wish for sponsoring this video. The first thing is this Watercolor set do drew it’s one of those travel style sets This one has 36 colors and two brushes you’re supposed to load the brushes with water and then you don’t need to dip a paintbrush into water and you can use these sponges to clean off your brushes in between colors and This piece here is a palette. This set was only $13 13 for all these paints that is a Steal and I got some extra brushes because I didn’t want just these ones. I want to try some other ones I came across this set and it looked very Intriguing because there are a good variety of sizes And these are just huge look how much water these can hold so here are the brush tips We have we have these pointy ones in three different sizes and these square ones in three different sizes I’ve never seen a square tipped water brush before and look at the size of these two. They’re huge I just thought that was pretty interesting. I just had to grab this set and this set of six brushes cost three dollars again, amazing price So what I’m gonna do is fill this with water and then do some Swatching of the paint’s I’m gonna test out the little brush one that came with this set. I think they’re both the same size Yes, okay. The first one is white Well, we got a swatch it if you’re not supposed to use white when you’re doing watercolor then why does every watercolor set come with? White I probably should be doing my swatches more like that where I fade it out Kind of too late, but oh, I’ll try I’ll try fading them out of it Just a wee bit of cross contamination I feel like those sponges are getting really dirty or really fast. So I’m gonna use some paper towel I probably had a little Cross-contamination like there, but it’s hard with water brushes You must embrace the mixing of colors these look pretty nice I can’t stop staring at this one and I can’t stop staring at that one But it could also be because the way the water dried it just looks so good I thought these would be a bit choppier, but they’re not that chalky at all I’m actually surprised even when I caked it on on this edge of every swatch where I did it darker It’s not chalky. Well, I’m really impressed. I thought for $13 they wouldn’t be this nice now these paints are not the only Coloring supply I got from wish did you really think I was gonna order from wish and not get markers? Of course, I did of course. I did. This is a set of sixty colors It comes in a little baggie like this. The colors are labeled on the top You have a number code and then a written name like rose red pastel violet. So on and so forth pale purple That looks pink to me. These don’t have a brush nib they have a bullet nib and a chisel nib, but I just had to try them because this set of 60 colors was Drumroll, please $22 22:4 60 markers You’re getting three markers for a dollar the barrels feel super high-quality some plastics. Just feel cheap these actually feel nice there was a choice of black barrels or white and I chose white because I feel like Lighter colored markers tend to feel higher quality. I don’t know. There’s something about black barrels that just feels more cheap Maybe it’s just the way they reflect it makes it look like a cheaper plastic. I don’t know I’ve always thought that the white barrels look more than a Z and look we even have This thing here that denotes the non broad tip a little gray line They look pretty nice all things considered but no brush nib, you know, I love the brush nib so I wish these did have a brush nib, but Nass and they don’t ooh, that was kind of cool Let’s watch these and see what they’re like Thank you wish for sponsoring this video So here at the swatches, they’re not fully in number order because I was not about to organize them before squashing them I just started with pinky and peachy tones and then moved on to Red’s and so on and so forth There is some structure to the numbering system. For example all the Zeros and 10’s appear to be red and pinky colors, but there are some things that are in the 80s But the eighties seem to be purple because remember this one was labeled as being pale purple What is 84 called pastel violet? So yeah, they’re they’re meant to be in the purple group 70’s or blues 60s are also glues 50s or greens 40s or yellowy greens, then you have green grey blue grey warm Grey cool gray and black and then yeah, so there is a pattern to it So before I color this with the markers and watercolors, I just want to mention one last product It’s not being used for this artwork so we’ll just squeeze it in here last it is an easel a standing easel because I have a Desktop easel and that’s it. And I’ve been wanting a full standing one, but I thought well I’m probably not gonna use it much so they couldn’t really justify getting it until now It folds up all teeny tiny and then opens up to a full sized easel. It’s made of wood So it’s pretty nice and it comes with a palette There’s also a drawer in the back of it and you can pull the drawer out Forwards if you’d rather have the materials in front of you. There’s also a longer strap So if you don’t use the handle you can use the long strap instead and this easel was 105 dollars Now, let’s move on to more coloring I Wanted to use both the paints and the markers for this so I decided to use the paints for the bulk of the actual crystal ball or snow globe I picture it being kind of more like a snow globe and I don’t know where this idea came from with the severed head at the keyhole I don’t know. Maybe I saw it somewhere once before it’s just been in my subconscious. It just came to me and I thought I knew the watercolor would work well for this swirling asst inside the globe So that’s why I chose that and then the parts that you want to pop like the girl’s head and the key and the stars Those were done with marker. Thank you once again wish for sponsoring this video I had a blast trying out all the supplies and I hope you guys Enjoyed watching me test them out.
