Welcome to the preclass lesson! The first video gives a quick overview of the supplies you’ll need for class; please see the description and links below.
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.
At minimum, get photo paper, both 4×6 and 8×10 or so – the back side of photo paper can accomplish most of the lessons in class that are on the Yupo papers, but it’s not as sturdy, so I’d suggest treating yourself to a Yupo to play with too.
The class has just a yellow, red, and blue in it – these are primary colors. Beware of choosing colors that are just “off” of a primary — if your red is very orangey/warm, it may make brown when mixed with your blue because it’s red + yellow – and that’s the three colors together which become neutral. The Wild Plum in this trio set used in class leans a little toward the purple side, but that’s a little safer than something going toward the warm side. But – by all means try the colors you have in whatever brands you’ve got in your studio!
You can use whichever you have (you could do the whole class with just one), but I’d recommend a 99% as a staple. A bottle of Ranger and a 70% for some odd techniques might be of interest, Or you can do like I did in the video below and go crazy testing everything! These are linked here but try your local pharmacy or general store for very inexpensive bottles of isopropyls.
