Gel medium, soft or regular, gloss (if you already have matte, that's OK too)
White paintable tube caulk - buy the cheapest one at Home Depot in the paint dept. A small 5.5 oz tube of DAP Alex Plus is good.

Substrates: cradled wood panels preferred, but stretched canvas or canvas boards are OK. Home Depot has 1/4 inch MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) available in 2x4 foot sheets that they will cut for you at no charge.
Please keep sizes in the range of 6x6, 8x8, 10x10, 8x10, 6x12, 9x12
. Lots of materials are used in each painting, and if everyone shows up with larger panels, we will run out of materials. One of each size would be good.
Unprimed wood panels should be primed with gesso before class.
Any collage ephemera you may have.
