Supplies for Oil Painting Students
We are asking each student to purchase :
1. Carrying case for their supplies. This could be either a wooden case or a plastic utility box made for oil painters.
2.Tubes of primary colors. 1 tube each of cadmium yellow, cadmium blue, cadmium red, black and titanium white. Student quality paints in the house brands of Loomis & Toles or Wallachs are perfectly fine. If you decide to buy a brand of better paints (Winsor & Newton or Rembrandt etc.) please do not purchase Reeves brand paints!
3. Cleaning Solvent. 1 plastic bottle for cleaning brushes.
4. Liquin. 1 small jar.
5. Brushes. Buy Hog Bristle brushes of the best quality you can reasonably afford. Buy size 2,4,6 and 8 in both round and flat styles for a total of 8 brushes.
6. Canvases. Monart will supply the first canvas for the oil painting course, but subsequent canvases are your responsibility. Buy a supply of 3 or 4 at a time in a size dependent upon what the student wishes to paint. Buy the style made from wooden stretchers and gessoed canvas rather than the Frederix canvas boards.
