The course is $55 and includes all supplies, mark-making tools, embellishments and two LARGE full sheets of paper to cut down into your preferred sizes for paste-painting.

A Wide Hake brush or other wide bristle brush even, just for applying water will be helpful. Soft nylon brushes work well for this.

+ any personal mark-making tools - combs, paint brushes, sponges, chopsticks, rubber stamps, scrapers, anything that may leave an interesting impression or dragged mark
