  • Small 4 oz. container for water
  • Small inexpensive brush – ½” is fine
  • Apron – if you’re messy like me
  • Ephemera (this is optional, but it really makes your work more personal).
    • Any kind of small doo-dah you would like to try including in your art piece.
    • Inexpensive, thin papers (old dictionary pages, vintage children’s books, sheet music, maps, diagrams, etc.)  Not cardstock or glossy magazine pages
    • Light fabric, netting, lace, decorative paper napkins, etc.
    • Ink jet copies of photos – black/white or color (not original photos)

We’ll be working in a 4” x 4” to 8” x 8” format, so you can plan your images accordingly.
