Messy Ever After’s Most Commonly Used Materials and Products

I get asked a lot about the various products I use to make my art. I love to see other people let their creativity run wild, so I have created tutorials and product recommendations below. There are no secrets with me. I try to answer all of the questions I get asked most often, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, email me!

If you enjoy my tutorials, and I have helped foster your creativity or inspired you in any way, please consider becoming a Patron of Messy Ever After through Patreon to help me continue the work I do. There are perks!

You can also visit my Amazon product recommendation page where a lot of the products I use are nicely organized!
