Illuminated Borders - January 2014

  1  2 

The supplies needed for Harvest Crittenden's Illuminated Borders class:

- Pencil S142
- Kneaded eraser E09
- Ruler- C Thru 2" x 12" with 1/8 grid S798
- Waterproof micron pen, .05 in black or brown; popular ones are Pigma pens and Copic markers M17 & M18
     OR Waterproof black ink I70 and pointed nib N113 (Holder H62)
- A few sheets of graph paper. 1/8 inch grid. P22
- Translucent Layout paper. Size should be at least 9 x 12. P10-50
- A few sheets of tracing paper, at least 8.5 x 11in size. P43
- Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. Hot Press Watercolor Paper. 6 sheets appx. 8 x 10 in size PA82
     - If you have other Hot Press Watercolor Paper please feel free to use it.
- Gouache or watercolors in red, blue, yellow, black and white. In workshops I use Windsor & Newton Primary Blue (CMYK Blue), Primary Yellow (CMYK Yellow), Primary Red, Ivory Black (CMYK Black), and Zinc White. I like using the CMYK palette and will explain that in the class. WNG-HC1
     - YOU DO NOT NEED TO PURCHASE THESE EXACT COLORS. Any red, blue, yellow colors that you have are fine.
- I will also be using FineTec gold paint in the class. I like the Arabic Gold and the Moon Gold. You can just buy the refill pans if you want to try them. S741, S890
- I also like Dr. Martin's Spectralite Gold, Nickel and Copper colors. I27
- One or two fine pointed round brushes in size 00, 0, 1 or 2. You don't need one in every size, just one or two.
     - Moderately priced: Windsor & Newton Sceptre Gold brushes are good. The set of series 202, 3 brushes that John Neal sells are a good buy. BR27, BR27-S3 I like the elongated head and fine point.
     - Higher priced: Windsor & Newton Series 7 BR28 or the Raphael Kolinsky 8408 extra fine pointed round brushes are good choices. BR47
- Palette for mixing paints S679
- Scruffy brush for mixing colors BR43
- Water container S748
- Viva paper towels S817


BR27. W&N Sceptre Gold 202 Designers' Short Handle
W&N Sceptre Gold 202 Designers' Brush Short Handle

Limited Stock Available

Made to the same high standards as Series 101, these brushes have an elongated head shape, which gives and extra fine point and greater color-holding capacity. Ideal for fine detail work.

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 a 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.

BR28. W&N Series #7 Watercolor Brush
Series 7 fulfills the essential qualities that define the finest watercolor brush for artists: Point: The brush comes to a crisp point which is maintained during use. Snap & Spring: The brush snaps crisply back into shape with the right degree of spring to allow the artist superior control between the brush and painting surface. Flow Control: The color flows evenly and consistently from the point, with enough color carrying capacity in the belly of the brush to allow flowing gestural strokes. For artists who appreciate exquisite quality and longevity, there is no other brush than the Series 7. Today, just as in 1866, the Series 7 is made for those who understand that the quality of the brush will be reflected in the quality of their work.

BR47. Raphael Kolinsky 8408 Brushes
Raphael Kolinsky Sable Extra Fine Point Round Watercolor Brush

The same superior quality sable as the 8404 (BR46), but an extra-fine tapered point with a smaller belly for quick, precise strokes. Extremely responsive tip. (The photo shows the shape, but not the size of the brushes)

These bushes are handmade with the finest Kolinsky Red Sable. Multiple hair lengths ensure tightest possible point and a full belly for a high paint load. They have superior resiliency, spring and snap. Recommended by Rosemary Buczek for illumination.

Recommended by Harvest Crittenden for wiping pen points and brushes:
"I've used them exclusively for at least 8 years. They don't leave fuzz on the pen points or brushes."
