Supply List


Supply List

The first layers will be playing with alcohol inks. For those of you that have done an alcohol ink class, you will already have most of these supplies. If you cannot find a color or certain items on the list do not stress. Just do the best you can. We have lots of goodies to test and experiment with.

Alcohol inks minimum primary colors Magenta Yellow Baja Blue
Acrylic paints or liquid acrylics: (my preference is liquid acrylics) 2 or 3 of your favorite colors that are pleasing together. Brushes if you choose to use heavy acrylics.

4 Substrates (the substrate is something you paint on) Recommended sizes 5×7 6×6 or if you want larger sizes go for it! You can use any combination of … YUPO or Mineral paper Canvas panel (gesso primed) Clayboard Wood panel or cradle
