Supplies:

  • Acrylic Paints (a wide variety of basic acrylic paints is fun, but use what you have, even chalk paints are awesome) – Most of my students bought the same set as me (Liquitex Acrylic Paint set of 48 colors), so they didn’t have a tough time matching my colors.
  • Saral Transfer Paper in Black
  • Mixing Palette (plastic or even a paper plate with do)
  • Optional - Posca White Acrylic Pen (fine tip) - Any and all posca markers are welcome but not mandatory
  • Spray bottle for water or Mini Mister
  • Optional - Stencils and small piece of bubble wrap (I will use mostly font stencils this round)
  • Pencil/Eraser
  • Metal Stylus or Pen
  • Saral Transfer Paper (gray or black)
  • Magazine Pages, old envelopes, cardstock, scrapbook paper, vintage paper, paper doilies – anything to create your decoupage backgrounds (I’m cutting all my pieces into strips with a paper cutter) and we will decoupage the pieces onto either canvas panels or mixed media journal or watercolor paper (if you opt for loose paper, consider getting some painters tape and having a hard surface to tape it to)
  • Mod Podge or Matte Gel Medium
  • Palette knife or makeup sponge or stencil brush – for applying your paint through stencils
  • Optional Aquarelle Stabilo Black Pencil
  • Heat tool
  • Mixed Media brushes (for glue and/or acrylic paints, one small for detail work, one medium and one large ¾” or 1” is good
  • Optional – Deli stamped sheets, if you’d like a sheet of stamped images, be sure to message me! I’ll include, two crowns and a couple large flowers for this round.
