Materials List: One Day Mandala Workshop taught by Chris Carter
No need to purchase specific paint. If you already have pans of watercolor and/or tubes, please bring what you have. Mandalas are a great way to use up those extra tubes of paint and learn about color schemes at the same time!
Bring your favorite colors or:
Six tubes of watercolor pigment, one each of the following: cool yellow, warm yellow, cool blue, warm blue, cool red, warm red. At the end of this list I have provided a guide to the warm and cool pigment choices.
Watercolor brushes – I suggest a round #10, #6 and #4.
2-3 sheets (8” x 8”) Cold press Watercolor paper, scrap paper.
One or Two containers for water
Pencil – I suggest a mechanical pencil. I use the disposable Bic pencils.
