Prop-making supplies... what's important to you?

I was just sitting here, thinking about the tax refund that I'm getting back, and how to best spend some of it.  Now, part of the reason that I haven't really made anything new in the past 2 years is due to a severe lack of funds for supplies - along with low motivation.  I was thinking I could use some of the upcoming cash to put into my prop-making supply cabinets.  The most important things to me are: carpenter's glue, latex paint, DryLok, joint compound, liquid latex, assorted paint brushes (mainly chip brushes), and foam sheets.

I'm curious though, what would everyone else consider a "must-have" for their supply list?  I want to pick up a new medium in the hopes that it will spark some of that creative flow that I used to have, while I have the temporary means to try it.  Please chime in!

Pretty close to what you said. Foam, and lots of it, same with chip brushes! :) Paint, at least 5gallons of black every year.

It really depends on the project for us. This year....it will be a lot of lumber and a sea of foam.

Looking forward to your creations as always!

Cheers!
