Watercolour Workshop Supply List

Here is a sample supplies list:

• ½” masking tape or painter’s tape
• old tea towel
• paper towel
• watercolour palette, 12×8 or larger is best but it’s ok to start out with what you have as long as you have space to mix colours. Margarine lids, ice cream pail lids, or white yogurt lids work well for mixing paint.
• 1 sheet of 22×30 ARCHES Cold Press 140lb Watercolour Paper
• cobalt blue, ultramarine blue, Prussian blue, hooker’s green, transparent yellow such as hansa yellow medium or new gamboge, raw sienna, burnt sienna, and a dark pink colour such as alizarin crimson or rose madder genuine
• 2 boards or thick card to tape your paper to
• Watercolour brushes have long bristles that come to a point when you flick a wet brush. I mainly use a ½” flat, a size 6 round brush, and a size 1 rigger/liner/script brush.
• A small utility blade / exacto knife / box cutter with a ½” / 9mm wide blade with a lock mechanism
• Scissors
• Pencil
• White eraser
• Masking Fluid (not permanent) also called Frisket or Miskit
• A small cheap brush or applicator for the masking fluid
• A water bottle to stay hydrated
