I retain the copyright to the content you are learning in class. That means…
However…I love to see students making strides and taking this teaching and personalizing it with your own skills.
At the bottom of each lesson you’ll see some ways to share your homework and ask questions, so that’ll be handy for you.
Wax based pencils have a softer lead and are slightly (and I mean slightly) more susceptible to breakage when dropped than oil based (ie Polychromos) pencils. Different people have a different experience with them – I don’t have nearly as much trouble as I hear others may with Prismacolor. Not sure what to make of that!
This video covers other supplies – some of which you may have, some you may be interested in trying out. See the notes in the supply list, too, for info on what’s recommended vs optional. (And of course you can take the class and see the technique before deciding if you need a dedicated fine-mesh tea strainer. LOL)
This video was on YouTube – and has info on pencil cases, and making tags for your cases if you desire. All the supplies are included in the big supply list, as well as downloads.
The three available Hex Charts (available HERE) are NOT required for class. They may certainly help, but you needn’t use them; there are free charts listed in the Downloadable Resources section below.
This older video shows how to use unmounted red rubber stamps. Note if you’re an artist and don’t want to get into stamping, you’re most welcome to draw any images you want to try the techniques in class!
Below are the hex charts for each of the 3 pencil sets, available on my blog. along with a few free charts found online. Please feel free to download these for your personal use, but no materials provided to you in this class may be posted as blank PDFs for others to use. (Feel free to link to this class, however, so your friends know how you got to be so smart!) Just please be considerate of my content and the owners of other charts below as well. Thanks!

Colored Pencils: Choose one brand, or try the class with another you own. RYB are listed in case you wish to try out a brand.
Purple Onion Designs put together sets of stamps for you at a discount. (See the recommended/optional lists below to see what they are. No stamps are REQUIRED for this class. You can use other images that you can color in a similar way.
Recommended: These 4 stamps are strongly recommended for class; these are unmounted stamps, so either a mounting foam is required (like this one) or use them with a block and Tack’nPeel as shown in this video. Lessons will use these stamps and are recommended; if cardmakers have something similar that will work, feel free to use other stamps. Artists who don’t wish to stamp can draw their own images to practice the techniques. There are no stamps that are “mandatory” to learn the content in the lessons; they are intended to show techniques that can be used in other artwork.
Optional: These stamps from Purple Onion Designs are optional for class; they are used, but techniques can be practiced with other stamped images or by drawing your own pictures to color in.
