Contour Sketching Material List
I will be demonstrating with the materials listed below. However, there is no need to spend a fortune on art materials you won’t use more than once. In this class we can make anything work, so long as it makes a mark, and the paper will hold the marks!
If you decide to purchase any materials, I have links to both Dick Blick Art Supplies and Amazon on my home page. I will receive a small commission if you use these links to purchase your materials (your price won’t be any higher). I appreciate your support! https://www.jcmamet.net/
Mixed media paper, 9 x 12, at least 4 pages.
I like to work in a mixed media journal. Strathmore has a few inexpensive options. If you prefer to work on a pad of paper consider the Canson XL Mixed Media (9x12).
A variety of fineliner, permanent pens, my favorites:
Micron 005 or 01
Copic multiliner, 0.1
Master’s Touch 0.5
A brush pen is helpful, I like the Micron brush or the Faber-Castell brush
2-3 waterbased markers: I like the Tombow (choose your favorite colors plus a neutral grey) or Ecoline or Arteza
A small set of watercolors will also be fun. These can be as simple as Crayola or mid-range art brands like Winsor Newton, Sakura, Arteza. We will be “splashing” on the paints, not painting in a traditional sense, so any smaller paint brush will work.
Items to use for sketching:
Scissors, kitchen tool like an eggbeater or whisk, house plant
Other supplies to have on hand:
A few pieces of paper towels, spray bottle with clean water, cup for water (for watercolor)
