These kits contain the materials that will be helpful for the Net Loft Introductory Course in Watercolor Journaling.  We have listed below a comprehensive list of materials that we have found to be helpful in getting set up for the lessons, with links for purchasing selected individual items separately, so you can pick and choose and create your own kit, if desired. 

The first  is our Deluxe Kit, the Sweet Pea, which provides the most complete set up with the greatest savings.  Class Kits 2 and 3 are for those who may already have materials at home they would like to fill in with, or desire a more simplified version.  

Each of our SUITCASE KITS contain a rectangular enamel tray. These are highly recommended and a wonderful surface for mixing your paint colors.  Some people have also liked the smaller trays for mixing colors while traveling. 

Students will also need a COTTON OR COTTON/LINEN DISHTOWEL, as well as WATER CUPSEnamel cups work nice for studio or travel. Mason jars also work well. You will need a set of three for many of the  mixing exercises. Clear jars work best for the exercises, so you can see clarity of water.

Many people love using a WATER BRUSH for journaling. You may add one to your order as well, if you like.  The Pentel Medium is the most widely used.

The titles for the suitcase kits refer to the ribbons we tie on each handle to distinguish between each kit.

Please note: All of items in these kit lists are not required for  participation in the journaling course.  You can get by with the simple ingredients of a fine permanent pen, pencil, brush set, paintbox, and blank watercolor journal.  

Contact Dotty for any questions concerning materials.

FOUNTAIN PENS

Fountain Pens are not included in kits or required, but can be a wonderful addition to your journaling experience. These are left off the list  to allow for personal preferences in type and color.  Carbon Ink  (or pther pigment ink such as a sepia pigment ink ) is the preferred  ink for using in watercolor journaling due to its more permanent quality.  Bottled Ink requires a converter.

If you can budget or put on your gift list, the Platinum 3776 with the gold tip. It is a delight to use with the carbon ink for journaling in the UEF Ultra Extra Fine tip.

The Platinum 3776 is such an enjoyable pen to write and sketch with, and my most favorite tool in the studio and in the field.
