NOTE: All supplies listed, except a fine point marker or fine point pen and some practice paper, are optional. Akim can be done with a very simple monoline tool. However, I will be showing all of these tools in my demos. And adding color. If you don’t have the time or money to order them, no worries. You can still do all the exercises.
