  • Several sheets of white tissue paper
  • Various stamps or items that can be used for printing texture
  • Optional: a hair dryer, jar of Gel or Gesso, plastic serrated knife, frisket, salt, gauze

This paint in will be IN PERSON. Due to the on-going pandemic, masks are required at all in-person events/classes until further notice.
