Bare Bones Materials List – All Mediums
Diane DuBois Mullaly
BRING TO ALL CLASSES:
• Notebook and Pen, Camera.
• An open mind, your creative spirit, and your sense of wonder. There is no pressure! Be ready to relax, get in touch with the painter inside you, think good thoughts, and have a lot of fun!
BRING TO CLASS:
The materials that you normally use in creating your art. And a brown bag lunch. Easels are supplied.
If working in Graphite, Colored Pencil or Pastel:
• Use the pencils and pastels, erasers, shaders, and other tools you normally use. A Strathmore 3 or 4 ply paper is good for pencils. Pastels, use your preferred paper. Also read below list for what applies to you.
If working in Watercolor or Gouache:
• Use the pigments, brushes, panels or papers and other tools you normally use. Also read below list for what applies to you.
If working in Oil or Acrylic:
• Paint – Use the colors you normally use. Be sure to have a yellow, a true red, Ultramarine Blue and white.
• Medium – None needed for oil. Acrylic painters might consider a retarder to slow drying.
• Brushes – An assortment, including flats in various sizes and one smaller round.
• Painting Knives --Painting knives (aka palette knives) shaped like a trowel, one or a variety. I like Creative Mark brand #-25.
• Palette – Use whatever you have. Paper is fine. To cover and transport palette with paint on it: Masterson Palette Seal – blue lid for oil, yellow lid (with sponge inside) for acrylic.
• Panels – Your preferred canvas or panel, 8x10. Ampersand Gessoboard or Multimedia Art board work well.
• How to carry wet paintings -- If you want to save money and recycle, use empty pizza boxes to transport your wet paintings. Or buy Guerilla Painter Handy Porter online.
• Brush Washer -- or tank with a tight cover. You can use a glass jar with a lid that seals tight, the size of a spaghetti sauce or mayo jar. Or a Silicoil has a coil in the bottom on which to wipe bristles.
• Solvent – For oil painters to clean your brushes and palette knives, and thin your paint: ODORLESS Turpenoid or Gamsol. Do not use any solvent with an odor!
• Spray bottle – Acrylic painters, to keep your paint from drying too fast.
• Paper Towels -- Viva brand, several rolls.
