*, Okay, so two things before we start this video. One. This chair is incredibly loud and squeaky, and I acknowledge that throughout the entirety of this video, it's. Just that I am an old lady and all other chairs hurt my back.

. In fact, I can't believe I'm about to show you this, but in fact I even have this butt donut Uh. The second thing is this funky background that I have going on.. I'm currently in the process of revamping this whole entire studio.

Space. The old studio was great. It served its purpose, but I feel like it's time to move on and like become the next evolution of Rae Dizzle. You know So the whole entire revamp studio video will be out, maybe around October.

. So until then we have this whole entire little makeshift studio that I got going on here. Uh. But yes, Today's. Video is going to be a very relaxed chilled video. Today I thought it'd, be a good topic video to share with you guys an updated list of all the art supplies that just ain't it sis.

. These are just the art supplies that I Rae Dizzle, as the artist just refused to use and as you're about to see there's a whole plethora of reasons why I have chosen not to use these art, supplies. And, of Course, before we get into it, if you enjoy any of these art supplies that I am about to name honestly, you do you.

. I am absolutely not interested in raining on anybody's parade or like gatekeeping or anything like that.. What I am here to do is to maybe educate you guys a little bit share my opinion and you know.

Maybe I'll. Save you guys a little bit of coin. *Coin sound effect*. Now the very first art supply it used to be a classic.. I feel like every single person who is watching this channel right now has used these markers, but over time, and as you're about to see just the quality has gone way way way way down to the point where I don & # 39.

T even think it's worth it anymore, and these are - and it hurts me so bad to say it., But the markers that I just will absolutely not use anymore is the Cra-Z-Art markers.. I know a lot of calligraphers artists crafters, like so many people like these markers because they're, so cheap, but the last time that I used these for a video.

I was genuinely shocked with how bad they were working. In fact, the last time that I was using one of these Cra-Z-Art markers the sponge tip the best way I can describe it was like a hard rubber. So whenever you drag the marker against a paper, it's like the weird rubber tip, like catches on the paper.

. It's, so strange and just for the sake of this video, I also bought some Crayolas and I did a side-by-side comparison to make sure I wasn't crazy and just like making things up and yeah Lo and behold the one That ran out first was the Cra-Z-Art.

. It came in at seven pages, while Crayola was 13.. So not only is the sponge like a weird rubbery texture, but the amount of ink that's now in the Cra-Z-Art has just like plummeted. You know - And you guys know I'm - not here to rag on Cra-Z-Art.

I have mentioned them many many times.. I did a whole entire video on their colored pencils, which I still like. I remember distinctly in the past using these exact markers and they worked great.. They were literally a comparison to Crayola markers.

You know, But I don't know what happened So yeah. Even though these are half the price of Crayola just buy the one pack of Crayola, instead of having to pack, buy like two three four of these just to get the equivalent of one Crayola.

You know what I mean So as sad as I am to say it because I know calligraphers crafters artists, so many people out there like the Cra-Z-Art, I'm just gonna have to just pass on these. You know: Move on.

, Sad. Uh. Now this next art supply is actually more of like a crafter supply.. Now before I show you guys the demo, because I have it in my hand, I just want to say that I stole this from my mom's, crafting box, So mom.

I know you watch my videos., I'm. Sorry, you had to find out like this. It's, just that I didn't want to buy it and you had it so here we are., But yes, the art supply that I absolutely refuse to use is extra fine glitter.

. Now you're, probably thinking glitter, it's, so great it's, so fun and sparkly. You know, But apparently there's. A lot of upcoming environmental concerns about the tiny shards of plastic., Apparently extra-fine glitter like this one, is really hard to filter out of water systems because it's, so tiny it gets in the water system.

It ends up in the stomachs of marine life in the ocean.. As of right. Now there's, not a way to renew it or recycle it., But you don't, have to give up on glitter just yet. Here in 2020. They now make 100 % eco-friendly plant-based glitter.

, And it comes in so many different colors and styles, and it looks exactly like the regular cla. I cannot talk today. Okay, we're gonna try this again.. It comes in all different styles and colors, and it looks exactly like the regular glitter that you are used to just not made out of plastic.

Okay now for this next paint. I need to take a second because I feel like I'm, a broken record.. I have maybe mentioned this paint a million times on my channel, but I am just not the fan of this paint and this next paint is Tempera paint.

*Deep breath*. Oh boy, where do I even begin Now? If you don't know what Tempera paint is it's kind of like a mix between gouache and acrylic? It's, a very thin creamy, almost like chalky consistency of a paint.

. I don't even know where to get started. With my dislike of Tempera paint, I'm gonna explain it to the best of my ability but ... I don't like the consistency. I don't like the texture.. I don't like the little bubbles that you get whenever you put too much of it down.

When it dries. It dries lighter than what it looks like when it's wet. So you don't, actually know what real color you're working with, which drives me nuts. It's, not permanent, which means that it can easily be washed off or flaked off.

When it dries down. It gets almost like this weird white cast over it, which I'm, just not a fan of, and again absolutely no, no tea, no shade for the people who do enjoy Tempera paint. It's. Just that I the way I do artwork it's.

Just it's, not the same.. You know It. Just doesn't work, out., So yeah Tempera paint is something that I will probably never show you guys on. My channel., So the next item that I am just not a fan of when it comes to art supplies - and this is definitely another one that I've said maybe like a million times on the history of my channel, these cheap sketchbooks that you Can get at like dollar stores and like Walmart and different places like that.

, And the reason I got two of them is because this one's. More of like a kid one that you can get for a dollar and I got a more & quot, expensive & quot, one at five dollars at the dollar. Store. And the reason I'm.

Not really a fan of these is because it says it's a sketchbook, but in reality the paper that is inside of it is more like newsprint or printer paper. It's, just not it sis When you erase on this paper.

Sometimes it'll rip because it's, so thin. It has a hard time holding any kind of like wet medium, like markers, a lot of pens, even colored pencils.. If your colored pencil is too sharp, it'll, it'll like rip right through the paper.

. This isn't even about price. Like if you want cheap Dollar Tree, sells these incredible ... I have one Hold on And, as I was saying it's, not about price.. I spent one dollar on this sketchbook.. Meanwhile, in the exact same store, I spent another dollar on this five package.

Pre-Cut poster board., You guys know I did a whole entire video about Dollar Tree art supplies and how good they could be, and that includes poster board Sand it down a little bit. You can use the matte side and you get five really good pieces of art supply paper.

. Now this next art supply every single one of you, I can guarantee you guys agree with me on this one.. I feel like every single human on the face of this planet does not like this art supply, and that is pencil erasers that don't work.

. I'm sure every single person has dealt with those pencil erasers that when you try to erase it doesn't erase.. Instead, it just smears the graphite all over the paper, making a huge, huge, mess., Ooh Gosh.

It drives me bonkers when that happens. I have ruined so many good drawings, because the eraser just wasn't wasn't it. And, alternatively, I asked on Twitter what art supplies you guys don't like and a huge Response was & quot, those erasers that are more decorative than they are useful.

& quot. Apparently, a lot of people really don't like those erasers., So I just thought I would add that to the list. Uh this next art supply I bought for this video specifically.. I have bought these in the past and I had vowed to never purchase these again, but here we are.

Uh. These are the Crayola marker Blend and Shade.. I did a whole entire review on these markers. No.. I'm. Sorry I'm, just not a fan of these markers.. If you guys didn't see the review. These are Crayola's & quot, signature & quot & quot, upscale & quot markers.

If you will, they're supposed to be like a more high-end blending and shading kind of thing., An & quot alcohol-based marker & quot, that's, not alcohol-based.. When I was using these, I had a really hard time: blending and shading, which now, in retrospect it's kind of awkward, that I was having trouble blending and shading, because it is literally on the package.

It says & quot Blend N Shade & quot, when it doesn't do that at all. The color saturation was really really off compared to what the packaging said.. For example, the orange wasn't orange. It was like a neon like a vibrant, bright neon orange.

. It comes with a colorless blender that just bleeds like nobody's business and it could easily easily EASILY ruin your artwork and especially because Ohuhus since my review, they & # 39. Ve raised the price I think by like five dollars, but just the fact that you can get 40 Ohuhu markers that work incredible compared to 16 of these, for almost the exact same price.

It just doesn't sit well with me as like an artist you know, And by the way I just want to do a note that I have tried. The other Crayola & quot professional line & quot and I haven't, found anything that I've liked.

. In my opinion, I kind of feel like it's a little bit of a money grab. If I'm gonna be honest here, you know So yeah as much as I like the concept of like a high-end Crayola. I really really really think they need to work on this.

You know Now this art supply again, I bought it for the sake of the video to show you guys. Uh, but this next art supply. I absolutely ABSOLUTELY refuse to use this art supply and I'll, explain. Why..

This art supply is anything with cadmium in it.. Now cadmium is a naturally occurring pigment and it has a pretty controversial past.. According to this Australian government website & quot, if consumed over a long period of time, cadmium can lead to kidney disease and cause bones to become weaker.

. Large amounts of cadmium can cause damage to the kidneys, liver, heart and in severe cases, may even cause death. & quot. Now I know I said the word consumed, but you have to consider us artists.. We're, always working with our hands.

We're, always accidentally drinking the paint water.. We're hanging up our paintings. We're, inhaling constantly the fumes of our artwork, and you multiply that over the fact that us artists, we're doing artwork.

Our whole entire life., So that's, a whole entire life of us just constant exposure to cadmium, and even if it is just a small amount that I'm being paranoid. The thing is: is that they make cadmium-free paint.

That looks the exact same: it's, sometimes even brighter and more vibrant, because it is a synthetic.. In fact, I'm, going to show you guys a direct side by side, and I want you guys to guess which one is the synthetic and which one is the regular, because in person they look identical to me.

So here they are swatch. One swatch two and I want you to take a second which one you think is the fake one. Yeah. So left is the fake and right is the real. You see what I'm, saying They look absolutely identical.

A lot of the times it's even cheaper to get cadmium-free cad and, to be quite honest with you, I just don't, see no downside of buying cad-free Cad you know, In my opinion, why would I even want to take the chance of working with cadmium when I can work with cad-free cadmium? You know what I'm, saying So yeah, unless I really really really wanted a paint that was only made with cadmium.

I personally don't, see any reason why I would ever buy a cadmium-based paint. I just don't think it's worth it. You know, But yeah. That concludes my list of all the art supplies that I just will not use on my channel, or I will go out of my way to not use.

. If there's, an art supply that you just absolutely refuse to use, please let me know down in the comments down below., You guys know the drill I'll leave my social second channel down in the description box, as well as, Like any extra information.

And with that being said guys, thank you so much again for watching, and I will see you next video. Bye, okay, so two things before we start this video one. This chair is incredibly loud and squeaky, and i acknowledge that throughout the entirety of this video, it's.

Just that i am an old lady and all other chairs hurt. My back. In fact, i can't believe i'm about to show you this, but in fact i even have this butt donut uh. The second thing is this funky background that i have going on.

I'm currently in the process of revamping this whole entire studio space. The old studio was great, it served its purpose, but i feel like it's time to move on and like become the next evolution of redizzle.

You know so the whole entire revamp studio video will be out, maybe around october. So until then we have this whole entire little makeshift studio that i got going on here uh. But yes, today's, video is going to be a very relaxed chilled video.

Today, i thought it'd, be a good topic video to share with you guys an updated list of all the art supplies that just ain't it sis these are just the art supplies that i ray dizzle as the artist just Refused to use, and as you're about to see there's a whole plethora of reasons why i have chosen not to use these art supplies and, of course, before we get into it.

If you enjoy any of these art supplies that i am about to name honestly, you do you. I am absolutely not interested in raining on anybody's parade or like gatekeeping, or anything like that. What i am here to do is to maybe educate you guys a little bit share my opinion and you know.

Maybe i'll. Save you guys a little bit of coin [, Music, ]! Now the very first art supply it used to be a classic.

I know you watch my videos. I'm. Sorry, you had to find out like this: it's, just that i didn't want to buy it and you had it so here we are, but yes, the art supply that i absolutely refuse to use is extra fine glitter.

A broken record i have maybe mentioned this paint a million times on my channel, but i am just not the fan of this paint and this next paint is tempera paint. Oh boy. Where do i even begin now? If you don & # 39, t know what tempera paint is it's kind of like a mix between gouache and acrylic?

You know it. Just doesn't work out so yeah temper paint is something that i will probably never show you guys on. My channel so the next item that i am just not a fan of when it comes to art supplies - and this is definitely another one that i've said maybe like a million times on the history of my channel, these cheap sketchbooks that you Can get at like dollar stores and like walmart and different places like that, and the reason i got two of them is because this one's more of like a kid one that you can get for a dollar and i got a more expensive One at five dollars at the dollar store, [, Music, ] and the reason i'm.
