Fine point permanent black pen (Copic 0.3 and smaller or any equivalent)
Sumi ink (packed tightly in a plastic bag!)
Pencils (HB, 3B and 4B) and white eraser
12" metal ruleror straight edge
Writing tools you like(pens, pencils, colored pencils, found objects)
Plastic plate, palette paper or palette for mixing color
Small, cheap brushes for mixing watercolor
Small,pointed watercolor brush: #2,4, or 6 Gold Sceptre (red handle) or Richeson 9000
1-2 wide brushes (3" or so)like natural bristle house paint or cheap foam brushes
Container for water
Rags or paper towels
Approximately 6 half sheets (20x25) or Arches Text Wove-the amount of paper is an estimate as people work at different speeds. If possible, roll instead of folding paper.
Containers, about pint sized, with lids (at least 6) for acrylic paints. Be sure they have wide enough mouths to dip the wide brushes into.
3 tubes of watercolor or gouache for detail: any yellow, red, and blue
House sponge (approx. 4x6x1/2) cut into quarters
Acrylic paints:(These particular colors are important) cad red, quinacrodone red, cad yellow, hansa yellow, ultramarine blue, phthalo blue and titanium or zinc white. I prefer Golden for quality and intensity of colors. Tubes, jars, or liquids are okay. 2 oz. size tubes are what I use.
Meidums to use with the paints will be at the workshop.
OPTIONAL (You don't need to run out and buy these.):
Small cutting mat
Spray bottle for water
Other papers to experiment with
