VIRTUAL TUTORIAL $20
Here is a list of suggestions to have with you for the tutorial
 
  • Acrylic paints: You'll want to have paint from the tube for this tutorial. Black, White and Choose 2-3 colours that go well together & suit your taste! I'll be using Fluorescent Pink & Turquoise. Other options, Light Blue, Pink & Pastel Green or Pink & Light Green. Here are a few more images to give you an idea
Note* For paint days its not necessary to use expensive paints. The professional grades have more pigment than student. I like Amsterdam paint for an economical option with higher pigment. Michael's carries Artist's Loft as their student grade & professional acrylic set option.

  • Palette knives I would have up to 3 on hand. Metal or plastic works. Choose ones that have straight sides rather than curved. The tips can definitely have a curve like this image.
  • A Flat Surface is best for this style of painting
  • Brushes You can have a few on hand but we'll be using mainly the palette knife for applications.
  • Water Glass
  • Paper Towel & Rag for cleaning brushes in between coats
  • Hair Dryer is handy (in case you need to speed up drying time)
  • A palette for your paints - A paper or plastic white plate works well
