Supply List for the Journey into Mindful Mandalas

You can order these online or if you’d rather have a field trip to your local art supply or craft store, here are the things you will need. Some like to purchase all at once, others like to spread it out. I’ve listed what you will need week by week. Click on the image below for ordering info.

Full Disclosure: Healing Icons (our 501c3 non-profit) will receive a small commission when you purchase these products using the links below. These funds go to support our mission.

Class One

Compass or Circle Template

Anything a bit less than 4” will do just fine – a jar lid, a small bowl

Black Card Stock

Smooth surfaced, letter size – Cut into 4” x 6” – Heidi will show you how to cut in the first class.

Class Two

Optional – Black Paper Scrapbook or Photobook

If you really get into the black and white mandalas your will probably want to purchase one of these. I’ve included three examples as they can sometimes be hard to find. 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.

A Pencil

Any pencil will do but 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.

Class Three

No supplies to purchase for this week- You will need one of your favorite writing/ink pens.

Class Four

Sharpie Pen

Black, thin tip

Small Acrylic Brush or Water Brush

Waterbrushes are super cool as they have a water reserve built into the brush. Terrific for working outdoors or on the go.

You will also need Paper Towels and a Paper or Plastic Cup for Water – if you are not going to use a water brush

Class Five

No new materials needed!

Class Six


Scotch Self-Seal Laminating pouches

4" x 6" – glossy or matte the choice is yours. I’d get at least 3 packages.


A Storage “Container”

Something to keep your mandalas in. My favorite is a 9” x 6” organza bag but a plastic baggie, a box, or large envelope will also work.

Class Seven

 

12" x 18" Black Paper Pad (24 sheets)

If you are creating with others, each one in your group will need to make sure that they have a sheet of paper. Strathmore STR-445-112 is a pack of 24 12” x 18”sheets black paper which is a good buy and your group can split the costs.

 

Strathmore Artagain – Coal Black - 19” x 25” (single sheet)

If you are creating by yourself you will need one large sheet.

Gather things from Nature

Flowers and Herbs, Sticks and Stones, Seeds and Berries, Sand and Shells…

Class Eight

No new supplies are needed​
