Bring metallic gold or silver & Neon red if you have them or use mine.

Canvas or canvas board size:
9 x 12" or larger is ok too. (Just use larger tissue paper)

Additional suggested items:
--Strathmore Acrylic Palette paper pad (yellow)
--set of tall, white, bristle brushes in plastic tube. contains 20 brushes & a canvas brush
                holder. Located by canvases on lower shelf.
- A small (metal or plastic) bent palette knife is handy. The one in the kit is so huge!
--A good, thin liner brush AND  other brushes you have, flats, rakes, angles, rounds etc.
--Graphite paper (black), stylus, tape & ruler.
   If graphite paper is new, wipe off black side really well with tissues or paper towel before class.
             --paper towels !!!
*ALWAYS BRING YOUR PAID RECEIPT or your online registration confirmation paper.
The background is more blue than the picture shows. I used Thalo blue + paynes grey. You can change your background color if you wish but a dark color is best.  We will paint it in class.
HOMEWORK:  Do the day before class!!
Wrinkle up tissue paper alot.  Gently smooth it out but don't remove all wrinkles. Glue it onto canvas-tapping it with fingertips to remove air bubbles but keep wrinkles. If air bubble you can poke it with pin and press down while glue is still wet. You can use regular white glue or mod podge or decoart multipurpose sealer. (we will put that ontop of paper in class.)  I glued the edges around to the back but you could trim it also.
If you want to bring it in to do in a previous class, I can help you but its not hard to do. I'd do this all in the pointsettia class but I want to be sure its all dry and glued on before we start.
