Odyssey Conference Class Listing

B3 COLOR IT LUSCIOUS


Nancy recommends these books. B2712. Afrikan Alphabets: The Story of Writing in Afrika by Saki Mafundikwa.
B2624. Color: A Natural History of the Palette by Victoria Finlay.
B3047. Encyclopedia of Colored Pencil Techniques: A Comprehensive Step-By-Step Directory of Key Techniques by Judy Martin.
B2744. Colored Pencil for the Serious Beginner: Basic Lessons for Becoming a Good Artist by Bet Borgeson.
Art House by Graham Percy. Out-of-print.

While it is not recommended for this class at odyssey, Nancy likes this new book.
B3353. Botanical Portraits with Colored Pencils by Ann Swan.

Pencils: Large set of Prismacolor Premier colored pencils (48-72 pencils) SHARPENED before class, specifically in following colors: True Blue-#903, Process Red #994, Light Aqua #992, Yellow #915 or 916, Indigo #901, Brown #947 or 946. White Prisma¬color pencil #938; any other pencils you ALREADY own (Verithin, watercolor, Lyra, Derwent, etc.) I use Prismacolor Verithin a lot and I will be doing demos with them.
Pen and Ink: Black non-waterproof ink e.g.: Higgins Eternal (I08); Speedball C-0 (N09) or B-0 (N16) pen nib.
Paper: 1 sheet cover-weight paper for portfolio cover- (18x22inches) (e.g. Canson); 1 half sheet of black Canson Mi-Tientes; 2 other papers you like to work on (8" x 10".)
Other supplies: pen holders, tape, pencil, kneaded eraser (E09), ruler (S270, S271), cut mat (S504), tissues, small palette (S679, S723), mix brush, water jar, scissors, snap off knife or X-acto (S417, S621, S662), etc.; manual pencil sharpener– the kind with replaceable blades (You do not need extra blades.) A smooth work surface measuring approxi¬mately 12"x 14" (31x36cm) – no bumps or texture. I work on a piece of Plexiglas 2 or 3 mm. thick, but masonite, a cut mat, smooth mat board, or even poster board will work–the ideal is a smooth hard surface.
Optional: Stylus (S234), small knitting needle, or a dead ballpoint pen. (I bring plenty to share.); any other wide pens (N27) or split pens you already have, bone folder (S279, S308), electric pencil sharpener.
Materials fee: $15

Materials fee: $15


I08. Higgins Eternal Ink
I08. Higgins Eternal Ink.

A non-waterproof, carbon black ink for dip pens. Our most popular ink for classes. Recommended for copperplate (add a few drops of gum arabic). Perhaps the best ink for calligraphy for a beginner; it will cause the beginner the fewest problems. This ink will bleed more readily than other inks. If bleeding is a problem, try Sumi Inks. 2.5 oz.

Quantity discounts start at 6 & 12.

"For broad-pen writing, I add gouache to Higgins Eternal. Gouache gives Eternal some needed body. It doesn't necessarily have to be black gouache. Indigo or a dark red add an interesting hue to the result. In a quarter ounce of Eternal, I add about a 3/8-inch bead of gouache from a tube. Eternal doesn't give me the hairlines I want in pointed pen work, so for that I much prefer iron gall or walnut ink". - Bob Hurford
