This is my watercolor kit. I got it in elementary school and I have been using it for 20 years. 20 years! I've had to replace a few cakes over the years, but not many. Perhaps this speaks to how often I paint with watercolors, which is not very much. I used them over the weekend to create the mock-ups for Hana's wedding invitations, and I took a moment to appreciate how much I love these watercolors. That's when I realized that I have been loving these same watercolors for 20 years, and my mind was blown. I know every color by heart, and exactly what I need to mix to make just the right shade. It's like painting with an old friend. My friend Jamie showed me her gorgeous set of watercolor crayons recently. She got them for her Bat Mitzvah and has kept them in pristine condition despite their use, which is more that I can say for my kit. Do you have any favorite art supplies or tools you have been using for years, or heirloom kits that have been passed down?
