  • Supplies

    Most items listed below may be found at your local Michaels craft store or for a lower price on www.DickBlick.com. The pencil sharpener that I like best may be ordered from www.Amazon.com. If you are thinking of trying Michaels, you may want to call ahead. They have had some supply shortages recently.

    - Prismacolor Premier 72 (or more) Pencil Set - Please not order the Prismacolor pencils from Amazon, some sets are counterfeit and are of poor quality.

    - Prismacolor Colorless blender

    - 9x12 or 11x14 Drawing Paper Pad ***I highly recommend going with a 184 lb or heavier paper weight. It is strong enough to hold up to using solvents without warping or fraying. The 11 x 14 Strathmore Mixed Media Pad in 184 lb is a great option*** Please message me with any questions. 

    - Alcohol Colorless Blender Marker (can be found at Michaels or Online) Brand doesn't matter much. Below is a link to a three pack on Amazon. I like to use different markers for certain colors because the tips get dirty. 

    Colorless Blender Marker

    - Pencil Sharpener: I highly recommend the AFMAT Long Point hand crank style pencil sharpener. You may order it on Amazon.com 

    - #2 Pencil

    - kneaded eraser

    - 12" or 14" Ruler depending on the length of your paper pad
