PAINTING MEDIUM: I use Flemish formula “Maroger Medium” I purchase from “Old Masters” Maroger. www.oldmastermaroger.com NOTE; (Maroger can have a strong turpentine odor and if you are sensitive to it, I recommend "Winsor & Newton" Liquin.

BRUSHES: Good quality hog filberts in sizes:#1 #3 #4 #5 #6. (I primarily use “Robert Simmons" Signet hog bristle filberts) A few good quality smaller soft hair filberts and rounds. (Synthetic sables are fine)Also, a 1 1/2" - 2"wide flat bristle or synthetic sable is good for smoothing a background.A fan brush is also handy to have.

PAINTING KNIFE: A flexible pointed painting knife of about 2-3 inches long.

SOLVENT: Odorless mineral spirits.

PALETTE: I prefer a glass palette, but wood or plastic is fine.
