If you prefer getting creative yourselves, I can recommend (after trial and error) these low-odour acrylic paints:
Amsterdam Paint Set 36/PKG, Multi, One Size (set of 36)
Amsterdam Acrylics Paint Set of 20ml X 12 (set of 12)
Also, while the above standard series is fine for the beginning, I can only recommend buying some expert-level white along with it. Makes all the difference…
I use these brushes, which are good value for money as they last:
A larger brush is useful for the base layer. Quality is less important. I use a make-up brush. You could even use one for wall paint.
I paint on canvasses and paper. Canvasses are particularly nice because they do not need to (but can) be framed and do not deform. If you don’t like your painting, just paint another one on top. These are an economical choice with different sizes for the start:
Don’t forget to stretch them before painting them.
However, if you want try out whether you enjoy painting before investing in a canvas, I have found that compressed, sturdy cardboard (e.g. some envelopes and packaging) work well. Wood does too if you’d like to upcycle any chopping boards or furniture.
Most importantly: Enjoy! 🙂
