○ Pilot Parallel Calligraphy Pen 6.0mm ($10)http://www.amazon.ca/Parall...
○ OR a 10mm wide flat-brush or similar . (introductory brushes are around $5 to $10). The course notes have been designed around this ( 3/8th inch, 10mm) size. A Winsor & Newton brush or any brush with spring is acceptable. Curry's, Michaels, or even a local paint and wallpaper store will have these available.
○ A palette to thin paint.
○ Cup for water and mixing paint.
○ Acrylic paint (red, black, or dark colour). I recommend picking up a few tester paints for a $1.00 each. You don't actually need much paint as it lasts quite long when thinned properly.
○ Some extra paper (no much, just regular bond paper, nothing special as it is for practice)
