Here you can find mandatory supply lists for my classes and workshops, but also some things I love and can’t resist adding
Adult Acrylic Painting
|Required – Paper or canvas boards|
|These canvas boards will get you started until you’re ready for bigger things. Also great for experimenting.|
|This will be for your color mixing, where you will create studies and mixing charts so you can paint ALL the colors.|
|Required – Your choice of paints|
|Golden Heavy Body. This is a great little kit to get you rolling in the acrylic paint world with these high quality paints.|
|Golden Open is my favorite acrylic paint, a hybrid really. Can be mixed with any other acrylic paints. The drying time is slowed to give more time for blending and this paint offers a beautiful jewel tone sheen – more like oil paint. This is the perfect starter kit to see if you like it. This kit works with the heavy body acrylics already in your kit.|
|Interested in outdoor painting? The GOLDEN OPEN slow dry landscape painting kit is just what you need to get started. Come trip through the hills with me and paint the scenery. Looks more like Oil without the hassle.|
|Golden Heavy Body Titanium White.|
|Required – Your choice of brushes|
|Here is a great set of little economy brushes that will get you down the road until you’re ready to make a larger investment.|
|Silver Brush has many lines of excellent brushes but my favorite hands down is any shape or size in their Monza line. It is a quality synthetic mongoose brush with a beautiful push to it. And no mongeese were injured in the making!|
|Silver Brush Limited 5406-30 Silver Atelier Angle Hog Bristle Mottler Brush|
|Silver Brush Limited 2506S1/4 Ruby Satin Angle Brush for Fluid and Flow Acrylics, Size 1/4 Inch|
|Frog Tape, lifts off without destroying your work.|
|Gesso primer. We can use this to prime your watercolor paper so we can paint with acrylics on that too!|
|All acrylic painters should have one of these in your pack. You pay a lot for your brushes and you want them to last! Wash them out with this soap and warm water till the water runs clear. Please don’t leave them standing in water! Dry the head down or on their sides.|
|You’ll be glad you planned ahead. This is the only thing that gets acrylic paint out, and only if you act fast!|
|Paper sheets (for the palette)|
Required. Your choice of size.

Just for Fun
Watercolor sheets with deckled edge. For advanced watercolor and drawing class, great for mixed media too!
Toss these in your bag with your field kit and you have everything you need to paint on the beach or poolside. economically priced so you can buy them for the kids too or several packs just for you! Not required for class but nice to have.
These are all the rage but please don’t use them on your finished work as they are hard on the paper. Great fun as a little add on gift. Kids are crazy for them.
