What should I take to class?

What brushes?

If I were to take all my brushes to classes I would need a big box! If you know the project you should be given a list of the brush requirements. There are some essentials though
1" basecoating brush
#3 round
#0 or smaller liner brush
#8 Flat
1/2" Flat
1/2" or 1/4" angle shader
#8 filbert

If you are really clever you could almost do everything with these...however if you are into teddies and fluffy things you should also invest in
1/4 " Feather filbert
1/4" Deer foot stippler

Mind you...I have almost every size of every type of brush! But this has been ten years in the making.
