Annabel tells us what she uses to paint her quilts

I’m quite often asked what I use to paint quilts – which types of paint, which brushes etc. Well here’s a photo of the basics.

The paint is acrylic. I don’t use mediums or anything else with it except water.  I use a variety of paint depending on what I have and what I can buy locally.

I mix my paint on disposable palettes, perhaps using 3 or 4 in a sitting.  The biggest brush you can see is my favourite and I do most of the painting with this.  The small brush is for detail, and the others for washes and edges. (Having said that, I do have 7 jam jars stuffed with paintbrushes and I wouldn’t part with any of them!!)
