Decorated Letter and Border: 16th Century Renaissance

1  2  3  4 

Sophie Klesen: Decorated Letter and Border: 16th Century Renaissance,/br> Paper
  • Tracing paper or lightweight layout paper (P43, P09-100)
  • At least one sheet of Fabriano A3 HOT PRESS or other equivalent in 300 gsm, bright white is better. (PS110)
  • If you want to try parchment/vellum, it is up to you but it will need to be stretched first. We could do that before the class, contact me by email.
  • Glassine paper to protect your gilded pages and small bits for burnishing (PS94)
Brushes
  • Old brushes for mixing (BR43)
  • Clean brush for wiping off gold skewings (I like a ½" to ¾" flat brush with a medium-firm edge) (BR60)
  • Good quality synthetic round or pointed brushes in size 0 and 1 for applying gold size (BR49)
  • Assortment of brushes, thin, round, pointed size 20/0 and up for painting illuminations. (BR48, BR26)
  • Liners for long straight lines. Princeton serie 3050 has some good ones, long bristles.
  • Otherwise, anything goes as long as it has a decent reservoir and a very thin tip. But using a round brush with thin tip will ask for a very stable hand.
Gilding
  • Ormoline Gilding Medium (John Neal via Cornelissen's/Roberson's in the UK). If you have Jerry Tresser's Gold Size that is fine too. (S929, S473)
  • If you feel ok with gesso, illuminating one I mean, bring yours! (S898)
  • Gold (I will supply what we will use, but if you have any, please bring it along, it is always useful. (S189-5)
  • Agate burnisher - if you have one (I will have some) (S194, S903)
  • Cotton gloves are always welcome.
  • Magnifying glasses (loupe) if need be.
  • Aspirin, you'll need that ;)
Pigments
  • Artist quality gouache: please have Titanium White, Lamp Black, Ultramarine OR Cobalt blue, Venetian Red, Yellow Ochre and sap green but bring your gouaches if you have some and even your watercolours. I will have all kinds of things for you to experiment with as well. (Click HERE for our selection of gouache)
  • Gum Arabic (smaller dispenser bottle or bring an eyedropper) (I84)
Other Supplies
  • 2H or 4H pencil for transferring designs (optional) (PL38)
  • HB Pencil (mechanical is good; I use a 0.3mm for a light touch but 0.5mm is good too). (PL21)
  • Eraser/gentle or kneaded (E13, E09)
  • Sanguine chalk for transferring the design.
  • ½" or ¾" removable painter's tape/artists' tape (S412)
  • Various standard items always appreciated: ruler; scissors; X-Acto Knife/blades; cutting mat; water jar, a few palettes with multiple wells; wipes & distilled water if you have some in a small bottle; compass and the very important tablet. (usually thin Mdf on which we will mount our paper) (S271, S835, S417, S130, S504, S1005, S679, S817)

BR26. W&N Sceptre Gold 101 Brush
W&N Sceptre Gold 101 Brush, Round, Short Handle

For fine detail, lines & washes. A traditional and popular head shape for all-purpose watercolor work. Can be used for broad strokes yet it will also form a sharp point. They possess excellent color holding capacity, sensitivity, spring and durability. Recommended by Michael Sull.

High quality brushes made from a mix of sable and synthetic fibres. They are ideal for watercolor and suitable for use with acrylic. For watercolor media, while today's synthetic brushes perform excellently, pure sable still has the edge. With a blend you can get performance that is close to sable at a price that is close to synthetic. The blend of hair in Sceptre Gold II also gives you added benefits. Sable hair has excellent spring while the high-quality synthetic filaments ensure that the brushes are soft enough to work the color but also have a strong snap so they return back to their original shape with ease. The high proportion of sable in Sceptre Gold II gives the brushes considerably more ability to make larger washes in one stroke than normal synthetic brushes, and the hairs are tapered to a fine point, giving the brush control for detailed work.
