Supply List (Ctrl+p to print)
Angela Wrahtz and Karen Berg
We will use all of these materials in our 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)
- Three 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)
- 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; Quinacridone Red; Azo Yellow; Gamboge; Ultramarine Blue; Cerulean Blue; Manganese Blue; Phthalo Blue; Cobalt Teal or Phthalo Green; Dioxazine Purple; Maroon Perylene; Nickel Quinacridone Gold; Raw Sienna; Burnt Sienna (or Quinacridone Rust). If you have 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.
- Miscellaneous: Water cup; Paper towels and soft Kleenex tissues; 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.); Dr. P H Martins Bleed-proof White Paint (this is opaque white for detail in surf and spray); Fine mist spray bottle (for clear water); Blow dryer (instructor will bring one, but it’s nice to have extra).
Instructor will bring some other materials to share in the workshop including some traceable shapes, a blow dryer, handouts, and project samples for inspiration.
