Supply Links & Recommendations

Please note that this is a list of resources that I use during the Mastery course demonstrations, not instructions for what to purchase - start by using what you have and add to your supplies as slowly as you like, based on what you want to try next.

My BlickU list (link below) has all but a few items and you can choose which ones you want to add to your cart & purchase. Note that for many items, there are other sizes, quantities and colors that you can see and choose from by going to the list, and clicking on an item's ID number on the left.

Items and books from other sources are linked separately below. (Some are affiliate links.)
