Creative Girl: Supply List - Jeanne Oliver

Supply List

White fluid acrylic paint

Transparent watercolors: and (only if you have them – totally optional)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Dr. pH Martin’s liquid watercolors are NOT light fast. As a rule, any finished piece will need to be protected with UV glass and should never be hung in direct light. If you are a geek about archival-ness and longevity of your pieces – this may make you uncomfortable.  Don’t invest in them if that is something that will bug you.
