How to make DIY paint

Get to know the master behind homemade watercolors, Stacey Dodd! She's the fun and lovable kiwi that turns pigments into magic.


How did you get started doing art?

I got started once my son started Kindergarten and wanted to create pieces of art for him and his nephews/nieces. 


What is your favorite medium to create with?



What is your favorite color?



What is the one thing you like to have nearby when you create?

Music. I love to listen to all sorts of music while I create. Especially 90s alternative and classical piano pieces. Besides that, a good cuppa tea. English breakfast please!


What most inspires you?

Nature, people and color. Sometimes just about anything like a shadow on the wall that looks like an image.


How do you push through creative ruts?

I listen to music, and look at other wonderful artists and celebrate their work with them. I refer to my collection of fabulous books about art and color.


If you could only use 3 supplies for the rest of your life, what 3 items would you choose?

Heck that is a tough one! A size 6 round brush, cold press paper or journal, and my watercolors.


What's your one hot tip for learners?

Stick with it if it brings you joy, leaves you wanting more, hungry to learn and lying in bed at night unable to stop thinking about it. This is your calling!
