materials list

Here’s an overview of materials I use for my mixed media work {not all of these are used in every class}. This is a list of my favorite products. Please use what you have in your studio, try not to buy anything new. I will share my favorites during the workshop. **I only share products that I truly believe in and have used in my artwork. Some of the product links above are affiliate links, meaning I am minimally compensated for the sale. Read my disclosure policy here.
