Supply Lists

Please feel free to substitute anything on the list with similar items you might already have on hand — in general I am not brand specific and believe in the "use what you have" school of thought.

Junk Mail Artist's Book Supply List

"A" List
- Ultra Fine Point Sharpie black marker (or similar)
- Fine Point Sharpie black marker (or similar)
- vine charcoal, soft
- a stack of 8.5" x 11" card stock office paper (or similar)
- small set of watercolors (cake or tube is fine, even a kid's set is fine)
- a 1/2" flat or filbert watercolor brush, or a larger round brush. (You just want a brush that is not too small because you will be laying down layers of watercolor on 8"x10" or larger pieces of junk mail.)
- white gesso (any kind, but I like Golden)
- brayer
- piece of white cotten, such as a flour sack towel. Paper towels will work in a pinch.
- some clear packing tape
- some clear scotch tape
- a hole punch
- twine, string or ribbon to bind your book together (you won't need much, about 2 feet)
- scissors
- 10-20 pieces of junk mail. I like a well-balanced selection of security envelopes (with patterns inside); colorful, heavier-bodied junk mail such as postcards or brochures (glossy is okay); and colored or manilla envelopes (including bubble-wrapped-lined ones). Extremely flimsy junk mail such as grocery store coupons, etc. do not work as well for this project. I will go over this more fully in the video on the "test" day, but for now just start collecting anything you think might work.

Faces 101 Supply List

Some of the items listed have links, simply so that you can know what I'm talking about. But please feel free to substitute anything on the list with similar items you might already have on hand — in general I am not brand specific and believe in the "use what you have" school of thought.

In order to do the assignments in this class, you definitely need the items on the "A" List.
("B" List items will be demonstrated in the videos, but are optional.)

"A" List

- a stack of 8.5" x 11" card stock office paper (or similar)
- One 22"x30" sheet of 140# hot press Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper (or similar), torn down to 5"x7" pieces. I like Traditional White, but Bright White is great, too! And if you like cold press paper, that will work as well.
- Any other paper you have lying around your studio, cut down to about 5"x7" pieces.
