Gessa
Gel Medium
Foam plate
bubble wrap
organza
candle
small beads
bling strips
pan pastels (one or two colors)
Plastic wrap
Cardboard
Masking Tape
Tin Foil
Paints (I have old acrylic folk art paints that work just great)
Glue gun and glue
Twine or string

I will let you know if you need anything more!

Gels can be thought of as colorless paint, as they are composed of 100% acrylic polymers similar to acrylic paint. They can also act as adhesives in collage and mixed media that dry to form continuous films with excellent flexibility with chemical, water and UV resistance.




Gesso is a primer. Artists sometimes apply it to a surface before painting on it. In fact, gesso looks a lot like paint. It is also used to add texture to a page or over stencils.

Originally, gesso only came in white. Artists put it on canvas, wood, or other surfaces before creating a painting with oil paint or acrylics.

Gesso makes the surface a little stiffer. It prevents paint from soaking into the support (canvas, paper, wood, etc.), and it gives the surface a little more texture (called "tooth"), so the paint sticks better.

Today, gesso comes in many colors. White is still the most popular, but black and colors are also widely used for art journaling and other art.



Pan Patels are basically dry paint! They are amazing!! Something a bit like chalk but doesn't flake.

Check them out HERE!




Organza is a thin material... like this...





Hope this helps!!

Gesso, Gel Medium, and pan pastels can be found in an art store (cheap) or Michaels.
Organza can be found in a fabric store. If you can't find these, no problems.. you can still do my challenges!
