  • Masking fluid (check to see that the bottle is not dried up).
  • Paint – try to buy the best quality of tubes you can. Look for artist as opposed to student quality. I am a fan of Holbein brand. All brands have different names for colors so buy:

    • Cadmium Yellow or Azo Yellow (Clean bright Yellow)
    • Ultramarine Blue
