I try to keep this class as simple and affordable as possible. The solid colored paper and appropriate glue is the most important. I hope many of you have most of these supplies already and I am sure there can be some sharing.
Please have fun with getting various solid colored papers. Local stores have good options.
Shop locally if possible but I have affiliate links posted here for recommended supplies and to give a sense of what I find works really well. Next time class is offered I hope to have discounted offers from a local art supply store.
For all supplies recommended - they are in fact just recommendations - if you have favorites just bring those.
We will each need:
Assorted Color Paper (The most important Item)
For this class I would like everyone to have a large assortment of solid colored paper. The below specs are just an example of possibilities.
1 pack of printer paper cardstock 120 GSM 24 assorted colors
1 pack of printer paper cardstock 250 GSM 24 assorted colors
1 pack of construction paper (Try to get maximum amount of colors like the 12 assorted colors instead of the 10)
The goal is to have a bottom layer of slightly thicker paper(card stock) that we adhere the thinner layers to so that we avoid the classic bubbling and curling when gluing papers together.
I prefer not to have exacto/ utility knives etc. because I want us to embrace scissors as a beautiful tool and respect their limits and uses :)
There are many Glues available. (Being able to brush the glue on rather than with a glue stick can be great). We want glues that don't leave shiny residues etc.
My preferences are:
Golden Matte Medium
Brush for Glue
Old paint brush will do. We will use this to paint the glue on the back of cut paper meant to be glued.
Scrap paper for messy glue
A folder for storing cut scraps.
A large tote bag. This will not be transformed or sullied in any manner. It can have any type of design or marking. It is part of a surprise project I like to do first couple classes.
