Mastering Color Mixing Supply List


I'm sure everyone has supplies, and I try to think of everything you could need but I want to emphasize that whatever you have can work, though “hues” offered by many manufacturers do not have quality pigment saturation. I can share spots of color! Painting materials are my suggestions. Bring the colors you have and discover colors you may want to acquire. 

Oil painters, I have found I can mix any color with the following oil colors:
 
Opaque: Titanium white (large), Lemon Yellow, Cadmium yellow medium, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Orange; Transparent: Indian yellow, Transparent Red Oxide, Quinacridone Rose, Ultramarine Blue, Viridian or Thalo Green  

Surfaces: 2 prepared boards toned a warm neutral grey at least 14x18 or 16x20, one 12x16 and a couple 9x12 or 11x14. Prime with gesso: 1/8" masonite, or heavy mat board, or light weight luan veneer, or use commercial canvas panels. 

Recommended supplies: Palette knives of the offset or bent handle style work best: brushes are not necessary for this workshop. Viva is a soft and absorbent brand of paper towels. Respectfully use only odor free mineral spirits or veggie oil for cleanup (8 oz is plenty to carry, you’ll need little or no medium), pliers, barrier cream, baby wipes, and a plastic bag for your trash. 

Pastel Painters: More than one brand provides more hues. Soft Pastels are buttery smooth. A full set of 96 harder “Nupastels” is the least expensive. Again, bring what you have.  

Surfaces: I use sanded, toned a warm neutral grey with thinned acrylic or water color. For color mixing charts, I recommend 2 surfaces 14x18 or 16x20, a 12x16, and 2 9x12. Tape to black foam core to reduce glare. 

Recommended supplies: paper towels, bungee cords, baby wipes, two brushes – one soft, one stiff for blending or erasing. Score and fold foam core or cardboard about 4”x 20” to make a pastel dust catcher.
