    What? Why I hardly know what you could mean sir. I am but a genteel and naive little flower, as pure and innocent as the day is long *flutters eyelashes*, a sweet and unworldy little cherub, and butter wouldn't melt in my mouth.

    I mostly use Createx Illustration because a lot of the techniques I learned were based on using it. I plan to start using more ETAC EFX here in the future, I just haven't had the time to play around with it much.

    I use Wicked detail quite a bit, but I've been leaning towards the Illustration line lately. I use E'Tac Efx quite a bit, too.

    I reckon most of 'em could be a pain!
    Started out with FW inks, then got into Jaquard brand AB paints.
    Still experimenting with media, but.

    Being financially challenged I use bottom of the barrel craftsmart paint from Michaels. Seems to work fine for dots, lines and dagger stroke practice.

    When I first started, I used ComArt but it's mostly Auto Air now. I still use ComArt white because it pops when I need to do white lines and highlights. Any recommendation for which paint and binding paint I should use for RCs. Not sure what is available in Canada
