Constellation Lettering Online Class Supply List
Yay! The supply list is ready. Leave any questions you have in the comments of this page and I’ll be sure to answer them. 🙂
Tombow Supply Bundle
My friends at Tombow were kind enough to put together a bundle of many of the supplies you’ll use in this class. Click the photo below or click here to get this bundle.
If you buy the Tombow eCourse Bundle, you will only need the supplies listed on this page that are in BOLD.
NEW! Check out a live unboxing of this lettering kit below!
Supplies with an (*) are used in both projects.
Project One Supplies: Watercolor Resist Lettering
- Watercolor Paper. Use a watercolor paper that is at least 140 lb.
- Artist’s Tape or Painter’s Tape. Washi tape would work as well.
- *Lightpad or a Pencil and Eraser. I will be showing you how to use a light pad in both projects. You can also just sketch the design on your work with a pencil, but a light pad eliminates any pencil lines in your work and I use mine almost daily! I use the A4 size lightpad.
- Paintbrush. I’ll be using an 18 Round in the videos but any Watercolor Brush will do. 🙂
- Toothbrush (for paint splatters). Buy a new one for art. Don’t use the one you currently use to brush your teeth. ?
- Palette Paper. This stuff ROCKS for this project and you’ll find yourself using it for all kinds of art. In a pinch, you can sub the waxy side of wax paper.
- Spray Water Mister. In addition to the ones in the Tombow Blending Kits, I have this set from Tim Holtz.
- Masking Fluid Watercolor Resist. Normally, I like to give you a budget option but after much trial and error with watercolor resists, I strongly recommend using this Fineline with a 20 Gauge Tip for lettering.
- *Tombow Dual Tips in Shades 679, 606, 555, 725 (or similar shades of blue, purple, magenta) (you can substitute watercolors in this project if you like but both projects will use the same four Dual Tips.)
- White Paint. I’ll be using Dr. Ph Martin’s Bleed Proof White but any opaque white paint will work.
- *White Gel Pen. A white Sakura Gelly Roll Pen or a Uniball Signo are great options.
Project Two Supplies: Blended Brush Calligraphy
Please note: Project Two uses basic brush calligraphy skills. However, you can also use “faux calligraphy”. If you’re new to Brush Calligraphy, you can find my Brush Calligraphy Guide and Workbook eBook here. It includes 3 video lessons.
- *Lightpad or a Pencil and Eraser
- Marker friendly white cardstock (such as this or this)
- *Tombow Dual Tips in Shades 679, 606, 555, 725 (or similar shades of blue, purple, magenta)
- Blending Palette (or something ceramic/laminated)
- *White Gel Pen
This is a more basic “checklist” version of all the supplies listed above:
- Watercolor Paper, 140 lb.
- Marker Friendly White Cardstock
- Artist’s Tape/Painter’s Tape
- *Lightpad (or a Pencil and Eraser)
- Palette Paper
- Spray Mini Water Mister
- Fineline Masking Fluid Watercolor Resist Pen, 20 gauge tip
- *Tombow Dual Tips in Shades 679, 606, 555, 725
- White Paint.
- *White Gel Pen
- Blending Palette (or something ceramic)
I look so forward to teaching you some really fun techniques when the class launches in April!
