Loosening up with Calligraphy and Paint - Where Chaos Meets Composition

  1  2  3 

Lorna Mulligan: Loosening up with Calligraphy and Paint - Where Chaos Meets Composition
  • Calligraphy Supplies - any calligraphy tools you like writing with including automatic pens, ruling pen, cola pen, etc. Also, any unusual or found tools you work with. (N27, N22, N208)
  • Brushes - your usual paint brushes, including a mid-sized pointed brush and flat brush or hake, also a flat brush for lettering (synthetic hairs) and a Chinese brush. You should have a mix of good brushes and some old, scrappy ones as well. (BR24, BR38)
  • Inks - sumi (good quality) (I70)
  • Coloured Acrylic inks (at least 2 or 3 transparent colours of different values, ex. warm yellow, deep dark brown or blue or deep red, any brand...). Colours that you like to work with, not necessarily the primary colours. These tend to be quite vivid and rich. (I13, I28)
  • Paints - watercolour or gouache (your favourite colours in tubes or a small portable palette) (Click HERE for Gouache)
  • Black and White gouache (in tubes) or Dr. Martin's Bleed-proof White (WNG1, I38)
  • Fineline applicator (S820, S1035)
  • Large white plate for mixing colours
  • Drawing materials - pencils (4B and 8B), erasers and ruler (PL38, E13, S271)
  • Any water-soluble pencils or blocks you wish to bring (example: watercolour pencils, water soluble graphite or carbon, etc) These are great for mark making, so bring a selection. (S955)
  • Any coloured pencils or felt markers you wish to bring (I like to have a selection of black and dark coloured felt pens, like Micron and Staedtler Triplus, giving a choice of waterproof or not) (Click HERE for our selection of Colored Pencils)
  • Extras - Masking tape
  • Two containers for water (yogurt containers are fine) (S1005)
  • Any sketchpad or book for taking notes and for any composition sketches, etc.
  • Paper towels or rags, plastic for the tabletop (S817)
  • Scissors and/or exacto knife and small cutting board (S417, S130, S504)
  • Small spray bottle or atomizer (S836)
  • Paper - Arches Text Wove (4 or 5 half sheets, for exercises) bring more paper and other options if you work quickly and want to try other papers (PS01)
  • Two full sheets of Watercolour Paper (140lb, Cold Press, 100% cotton) like Arches, Fabriano, W&N, etc. One sheet will be for small series and the other for our large painting. (PS48)
  • Text - 10 to 100 words, from a sentence to a paragraph (your words or someone else's - think copyright...) The theme to be explored in this workshop is: CONTRASTS (light/darkness, chaos/structure, summer/winter, earth/sky, warmth/coolness, organic/geometric, etc ) - your choice as we will work both subtle and bold (another contrast!) during these 2 ½ days.

S1035. Slimline Writer Applicator
S1035. Slimline Writer Applicator

An improved, easier-to-hold Fineline Applicator. Slender bottle can be filled with your choice of ink or any other liquid medium. Wire integrated into cap prevents fluid from drying in the tip. Ecoline and other similar thin inks do not work well with, using an ink with more body, like acrylic, will yield better results. Overall length 6.5", diameter 3/4".

Choose size:
18 gauge (0.8mm)
20 gauge (0.5mm)
