Carolyn's Supply List:
Bring what you have - any water-based paint, except watercolors
Bring paints you never use - we will use them! I go to Home Depot and Lowe's for about everything I use. I use latex (house paint) for first few layers, then "tweak, finish out" with Golden, Holbein and Nova, etc.
Black permanent pens (no Sharpies regardless of what it says)
Oil paintsticks or oil pastels. Shiva makes "Artist Paintstick" dries in 24 hours.
Large water bucket
Dropcloth for tables
Large and some small paintbrushes. The cheaper the better.
Big palette knives
Polymer varnish water based (Minwax polycrylic) Home Deport or Walmart
Collage material and gel medium
Gallery wrap canvases, Either 1-1/2 or 2 inch deep.
For canvases and paints, I use jerrysartarama.com, or asw.com. They come 3 to a box. I would suggest that 30x30 be the smallest size as we are going to be loosening up and that's hard to do on small surfaces!
I use heavy texture - Venetian plaster (Home Depot) I will bring a gallon to get started.
These are all suggestions - canvas and some house paint to start is all you need. I will have plenty of things to use.
Please come with a sense of humor, dressed in old clothes with every intention of having a good time! This will be a stress free zone, so don't make me nervous..... Carolyn Riegelman
