Optional

If you really get into the black and white mandala practice, you might consider…

Black Paper Scrapbook or Photobook

I like a small one that I can keep with me in my briefcase/satchel or a larger one just in case I feel like working big.

Week Two

Essential

pencil

2. Leaded Pencil

Any pencil will do

Optional

If you really get into this, a series of Graphite Pencils can be fun to use. They come in different hardnesses which relates to the amount to graphite they leave on the page.  The H Series is the hardest, so it has a lighter touch. HB Series is more like a regular pencil and the softest is the B series which makes a very dark mark.

Week Three

No supplies to purchase for this week.  You will need your favorite writing pencil or ink pen.
