1. Canson paper (or similar weight) to cover the book. Pick colors you like- preferable to have 2.
2. Mat board or tag board (if tag, bring sharp utility knife)
3. Large piece of heavy weight paper to paint, ie; 140 lb watercolor paper, or Bristol, or heavy drawing paper
4. Brayer, paint (acrylic, water color, poster, etc.), brushes for paint, pastels, glue brush (any old brush at least 1” wide), metallic leaf, leaf size, mod podge or matte medium, favorite scrap pieces of paper (fabric?)
Any of the above will do – you don’t have to bring it all!
5. Cutting mat I use Alvin, though there’s others). Just make sure its self-sealing
6. Utility knife with sharp blade
7. Xacto knife/breakaway knife
8. PVA glue (poly vinyl acrylic). This is a book binders glue- better than white glue – tackier and quick drying. Aleenes tacky glue may work, as well
