 Supply list:

8"x8" book with hard cover, or canvas or box
Gel medium (matte or gloss) or a good craft glue
Paper, card, tags, lace scraps.
Black gesso (other sizes available)
White gesso (other sizes available) - or any other thickish opaque white paint like impasto, chalk paint or thick acrylic.
Liquid acrylic paint:   Prussian blueultramarinedeep turquoiseviolet (You can substitute other colours or use fewer colours if you need to. Consider using at least one blue and the violet to get some contrast).
*Metallique wax: I used - Mystique turquoiseold denimelectric violetold silverWhite Pearl
Effect paste: Magic potion
Glitter: you can use any glitter you like. I used a pink one from Finnabairs summer set
Metallique paint: White pearl (for splatters/starry sky. But you can water down the same white paint you used for dry brushing. It just won’t catch the light in the same way).

*waxes: Again you can use fewer colours which will change the look of the finished project but might be more budget friendly. If you need to narrow it down, I’d  suggest going with one of the blues (turquoise or denim)plus the violet and for highlights use just the silver
As I was using gold instead of silver, I used the Golden Dragon effect paste instead of the magic potion but the magic potion would also still work. 
I used Sparks paint: Dragon’s eye for the splatters (starry sky.) But you could just repeat the pearl white splatters. 

Paint brushes. This is a very useful set by Finnabair (the ones Louise uses almost all of the time).
Kitchen paper roll
Corrugated card
Palette knife

We have a limited amount of resin kits that Louise has cast especially for us, once they are gone she will not be making any more. These can be purchased HERE.
