Acrylic paint can be used for all your painting needs.

I bought crystals from artbeads.com for the twinkle eye I made but I don't remember what size I used. I like the site cause they have a huge selection and you can buy single crystals if needed.

The brushes I use typically have golden taklon or white taklon bristles. I use larger flat brushes for body work and liner brushes for details and eyes. You should be able to find them online pretty easily.

I use acrylics for all my ponies (body and eyes/marks) As far as brushes go I really think it depends on what your doing, for example I kinda like the broader square brushes for the body and super fine brushes for the marks. My advice is to get a pack or two with lots of types and just play around to find which ones you like best.

As for twinkle eyes I use fake cheapy rhinestones that I get at my local craft store.
