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.
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.
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.
No supplies to purchase for this week- You will need one of your favorite writing/ink pens.
You will also need Paper Towels and a Paper or Plastic Cup for Water – if you are not going to use a water brush
No new materials needed!
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.
