What's needed?

What do I need?

Here's a quick run down of the equipment and materials I will be using throughout the tutorials.

I cover all of this in detail plus loads more in the special "techniques" tutorials, included in the free and paid memberships.

Mulin du Roy 300lb (For the big paintings and those feeling they want the heavier weight)

Bockingford 140lb HP (for every day)

Billy will of course resume working on Fabriano if and when they return our old paper.

In the meantime the reason for stocking the choices above is that the Moulin is very nice as a heavy weight paper and with a little adjustment to expectations is very fine.

The Bockingford is a good all rounder at the lighter weight.
