Supply List (Ctrl+p to print)
Supply List of Materials:
We will use all of these materials in both projects. This is a basic list. If you have additional paint colors, brushes, and pens, by all means bring them.
- Water-resistant mounting board to tape your project to (about 16” x 19” and not bendable)
- Two ¼ sheets (11” x 15”) of Arches watercolor paper, 140lb Cold Pressed, Natural or Bright White. If you prefer to work from a watercolor block, that is fine, just make sure your size is large enough. A little bigger is also okay.
- Blue painter’s tape (or artist’s tape which is not blue and a little more expensive)
- Scrap pieces of matt board (4” x 6” piece minimum)
- Watercolor Paints, preferably M. Graham brand (if you are buying new) which is made with honey and has excellent vibrant color and good value pricing. Other brands also OK if good quality. You won’t get results with cheaper paints.
Colors needed: Quinacridone Rose; Azo Yellow: Ultramarine Blue; Nickel Quinacridone Gold; Cobalt Teal or Pthalo Green; Dioxizine Purple; Maroon Perylene. If you’ve got more colors, bring them.
- Mixing tray (if you don’t have a palette with your colors inside)
- Watercolor brushes: 8 or 10 round or ½ “ cat’s tongue; 2 or 4 round; larger wash brush if you have one. You basically want one good medium sized brush with a point to lay down color and one detail brush.
- Water cup
- Paper towels
- Cloth towels to blot your brushes
- Fine and Ultra Fine Point Black Sharpie Permanent marker pens. (Bring any and all permanent markers you have for extra fun.)
Optional but nice to have:
- White marker pen
- Dr. P H Martins Bleed-proof White Paint (this is opague white for correction and detail)
- Fine mist spray bottle (for clear water)
- Leaf shapes for reference
Instructor will bring some other materials to share in the workshop including some traceable shapes, a blow dryer, handouts, and a project samples for inspiration.
