Supplies for “Making Art a Practice 2”
Pelikan cake watercolors: (set of 24)
Brushes: (a selection: 1.5″, #6, #12, #30. These are suggestions. You can use what you have on hand. Brushes do not need to be expensive. I recommend and often use Princeton brushes. There is also a set of 6 brushes for kids at IKEA for $1.50 if you happen to have an IKEA nearby. They’re really great!)
• (1+) 9″x12″ (eg: CANSON XL Mix Media Pad, 60 Sheets, 9 by 12-Inch)
• (1) 5”x8.25 (Moleskine Classic Notebook with plain paper or similar)
Ebony drawing pencil: or 6B, 8B etc (dark, soft lead)
Colored pencils: My favorites are Dick Blick for soft leads and rich pigments. Also Prismacolors. We don’t need many colors in this session and any brand will do.
Neocolor watercolor crayons: A small set is fine. Not essential but they are fun to draw with and produce wonderfully rich colors when wet with brush.
Crayola crayons: In lieu of Neocolors. A pack of 24.
Scissors: 8” size. Cheap is fine. (Again IKEA has a great set of 3 different sized scissors for about $6.)
Acrylic Matte Medium: A small jar is more than enough. We will use as glue. Glue stick can also be used but matte medium works best.
Black acrylic ink or paint
Restickable Glue Stick
Photos of people’s faces: These can be cut from magazines or photos you have. They should be about 2” x 3”.
Note: Whatever brands you prefer are just fine!
