Collage supply list to bring to class
-Most of these items may already be around your house;
-Artist brushes- Bring what you have that are good for acrylic and water based paints. Flat brushes are what I use most often. If you are limited in brushes and need to buy them I would suggest starting with a ½”, or ¾” flat . Stiff bristled paint brushes are best for the “gluing process”. Also if you love to acquire art supplies, like I do, and want to incorporate collage in your regular art practice, I would suggest a Princeton Catalyst polytip bristle Filbert brush. They come in various sizes, but the #8 is a good universal size to have. This is the brush I use to glue down the papers. You will also need the suggested flat brushes for painting techniques. If you want to order one on Amazon, the link is below.
-Roll of Paper towels
-Latex gloves or latex free gloves if you have a reaction to latex.
-A water vessel/bucket to place on the table space that holds a good amount of water for rinsing brushes.
-Old plastic credit cards or hotel room keys
Bring the following items to class if you have them; (I will bring as many of the following items as possible, but if you bring your own rubber stamps and stencils you won’t have to wait in line to use them and you may have patterns you prefer over mine)
-Bubble Wrap – Various circle sizes if you have them
-Old books you are willing to tear up for collage papers
-Old sheet music
-Produce bags (like what citrus comes in at the grocery store.)
A sketchbook- for cleaning off the brayer in between colors. These papers can then become additional collage papers
