Brushes: Essential brushes should include 1 large brown hair brush, 1 or several white hair brushes, 1 small brush for outline and fine detailing. Natural animal hair preferred. Alternate: 1 round, soft hair brush. White or mixed hair for multiple purpose.  
Paper: For painting, there are many grades of paper. Chinese or Japanese plant based paper are good choices, generally they are absorbent, with a smooth side face and rough side for the back. Called xuan in Chinese and rice paper in Japanese, they come in precut sheets or in rolls. Newsprint paper is used for practice and warm up exercise.  
Ink and/or Color: Chinese liquid ink or Japanese sumi ink are acceptable for our classes. Do NOT use Indian ink. Chinese watercolors, mineral pigments, or any water base colors are all acceptable. Alternative option: Use black watercolor as substitute for ink.  
Grid Paper for Chinese Calligraphy:  The grid paper are printed with red guidelines for practicing calligraphy. Alternate: Without using grid paper, you can fold unlined paper to create lined spacing for writing.
