This is the list of supplies and paper recommendations that Sharon has provided for her printmaking workshop:
Supplies needed: Acrylic paint and medium, paper, water container, spray bottle, paper towels and other optional tools such as stencils, masks, stamps, and mark-making tools, (brush, scraper, etc). If you have a gelli plate and brayer, please bring those. Please let the instructor know if you need to borrow one. Bring an apron or wear grunge clothes.
Hot press watercolor paper works well, and inexpensive Strathmore wc paper works. I like the Strathmore Aquarius paper for serious acrylic work. I usually recommend mixed media paper which reminds me of lightweight hot press wc paper. You can get it spiral bound or in pads. Whatever you choose, it should be acid free of course.
For this workshop we will provide basic student grade acrylics for experimenting, but bring any additional colors or artist grade paints if you wish.
Student-grade paper will also be provided – you may also bring any art paper or cloth you want to experiment with.
If you want to purchase your own gel plate gelli arts or gel press brands are recommended. These can be found at Hobby Lobby and Walmart locally and online at amazon of course. Speedball also has a version, but it is more appropriate for ink than acrylic.
You may also want to bring some tools for creating texture. There is no need to purchase these items, look for objects around your home that will create interesting texture such as corrugated cardboard, bubble wrap, paper/plastic stencils, makeup sponges, Qtips, stamps (foam or rubber). I will provide a kit of some interesting things I’ve collected as well so don’t worry too much about this unless you have a specific idea for something you want to create.
We have plenty of water containers so don’t worry about this item.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the workshop, let me know if you have any questions.
