Materials needed for the class:

  1. Pencil and eraser
  2. Sturdy paper for painting (Mixed media or watercolor paper), approximate size 6X8 inches.
  3. Paint Markers, any brand, 3 colors of your choice, plus GOLD and WHITE. Greta uses Elmer’s Painters Opaque brand.
  4. A ruler (or square and ruler set) to trace straight lines.
  5. Painter’s tape (for clean lines around borders).
  6. Optional: carbon paper to trace the letter. *Greta will share her carbon paper with class, if needed.
