WATERCOLOR / INK SUPPLY LIST
PAPER: The key is to have 140 lb. cold press water color paper.
United Art & Education  5924 Grape Rd. Mishawaka has a good selection of
watercolor supplies. I am suggesting either of two kinds:
1. Canson Montval  140 lb.  cold press  water color paper  size 15” x 20”
    12 sheet tablet    $15.29
2. Strathmore 140 lb    cold press    water color paper   size 18” x24”
     12 sheet tablet    $18.59
or  12 sheets tablet    $ 8.49     size 11” x 15”
Plan on using two sheets per class.  You will also find materials at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, on-line Blick’s)
Do not purchase the blocks of water color paper where each piece is glued to the next. Those pages are                       impossible to separate. The cover will say “Block”.
SKETCHBOOK or several blank sheets of printer paper to take notes and to sketch.
BRUSHES:
1 #12 or #14 round watercolor
1 #6 or #8 round watercolor
1 # 1 1/2”Japanese HAKE (United Art & Education  5924 Grape Rd. Mishawaka)
Above is the minimum. You may add any other sizes that you choose.
PALETTE: a plate or other surface (plastic) to mix paint and fill your brushes
PAINTS: watercolor paint can come in tubes (to choose the colors you prefer) or in a set tray of paint colors. I suggest purchasing a tube of Chinese White watercolor to mix with the basic tray colors of red, blue, yellow, green, purple, brown.
INK: one bottle of Higgins pigment black India drawing ink.  $4.79 at United Art & Ed. I will provide colors.
WATER JARS: two plastic (or glass) containers (cottage cheese or yoga containers)
DRAWING PENCILS: one #2
ERASER: 1 White- does not leave a color on the paper like a pink eraser does.
SINGLE EDGE RAZOR BLADE OR EXACTO KNIFE
MASKING TAPE 3/4” or 1” wide roll.
SMALL SPONGE
ONE ROLL PAPER TOWELS- important! A paper towel is best friends with watercolor!
