Beginning and Continuing Acrylic Painting: Section A with Marta Kaemmer

Acrylic paint – tubes:  cadmium yellow medium, cadmium red light, quinacridone magenta, permanent green light, cerulean blue, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, titanium white, ivory black. Raw umber and yellow ochre are also good neutrals, (or bring what you have) Note- I recommend heavy body acrylics rather than Liquitex basics, which are too thin.

Palette and palette knife (tupperware, wet paper towel and wax paper is a good self made, stay wet palette.)

Brushes - 3 to 6 of differing sizes and shape, synthetic and bristle, filberts and squares, plus one flat 1” wide

Canvas panels and at least one prestretched canvas, at least 11x14 inches

Artist tape, paper towels, spray bottle

Optional:

Acrylic mediums (not essential for beginners -acrylic glazing medium is good for thinning acrylics, matt or gloss medium-good for impasto and collage)

Paper (Bristol, Strathmore 300 or any heavier paper for wet mediums)

Gesso (for preparing paper, surfaces to paint on)

Keep a sketchbook!!!!!

Introduction to Felt Making with Elizabeth Stubbs

For Wet Felt techniques you will need:

2-3 old towels

            a dishtowel or tea towel

            a plastic container such as yogurt container (1 qt is good)

            a cake of olive oil soap in a soap dish or takeout food container

            a clean new sponge

            2 sheets of bubble wrap (small bubbles) approximately 12”x16”

            a piece of clean vinyl window screening, approximately 16”x20”

            a piece of foam pipe insulation, 2” or 3” in diameter, about 14”-16”

For Dry Felt techniques you will need the following. Please order from Living Felt:

http://feltingsupplies.livingfelt.com/

A piece of needle felting foam, approximately 7”x10”

            3 all-purpose felting needles, size 38 star or 38 triangle

            8 oz Living Felt CW-1 Core wool

            MC-1 Goody Bag (has a variety of colors)

Trader Joe’s is a great source for Olive Oil soap and sponges

The Dollar Store is a good place to purchase bubble wrap

A hardware store is where to find window screening and pipe insulation

Living Felt (online) is an excellent resource for foam, needles and fiber. They are located in Austin, Texas, but they have everything you’ll need and they ship quickly.

Other sources for fiber:

            Iron Horse in Natick, MA

            The Fiber Loft in Harvard, MA

            Halcyon Yarn in Bath, ME

            New England Felting Supply in Easthampton, MA

When purchasing fiber, make sure you are getting fiber that is good for both wet-felting and needle-felting. Ask the shopkeeper.

Please bring your dry felting supplies to the first class. That is: foam, needles, fiber.
