You do not need all of the things on our list!

Want yes! But NEED?… no!

If you want to make the same Projects as Teesha and I you will need:
3 x large sheets of Hot Press Watercolour paper – 22 x 30 inch
Fabriano artistico 140 lb. hot press paper
Example here: click
Hot Press
Strathmore 500 Series  Mixed Media Paper:
500 Series Mixed Media Sheets, Pkg of 4, 22" × 30"
Example here: click
If cannot find these brands, use whatever you can find!Smooth  or ‘Hot Press’ watercolour paper is better for collage, drawing and paint.

Jane’s Recommendations:

These are some of my favourite art supplies, and probably what I will be using. For what I ACTUALLY use, video by video, please see the Supply Lists at the bottom of this page.
Please note: I have added links to The Institute of Cute - the specialist Mixed Media art supply store my husband, Gus, and I set up in 2011 to assist Antipodean artists tracking down hard-to-find items! I have lots of videos and info there. Of Course Gus and I appreciate your order from us, but there is totally no pressure to order from me.  This is just intended to be a helpful resource.
