Surface: 12” x 26” wooden board from our Store. (use a coupon).
I used the darker, barnwood type.
Its rough and very dry- harder to paint on. I STRONGLY suggest getting one of the white boards and painting it a darker color - barnwood: paynes grey, a little raw umber + a little white then dry and lightly sand surface to show wood grain.
I plan to paint my class sample with a dark blue- maybe thalo + paynes and I might slip slap onto wet suface with a little lighter blue to look like snowy night)
There are some white ones that are rough or smooth that are the same size (you could paint it a background color).
(The smoother ones will be easier to paint on.)
Use a canvas. 12x16” will work with some adjusting or get a longer one.
(The boards are supposed to hang the other way with a twine string.)
Bring all of your normal painting supplies.
Grumbacher Academny tube Acrylics:
Cadmium red light, paynes grey, hookers green, white, orange,cobalt blue. (+ background colors)
Bring a good assortment of brushes (flats, liner, rounds),
paper towels, WHITE & BLACK graphite paper, stylus,
palette paper pad(yellow pad by strathmore) & palette knife.
Bring your stiff bristle brushes if you have them too.
Snow Tex is what I used on the top of the board but its optional. White paint
will work too.
