White Eraser

I like Factis brand, have found they are the best

  • #2 pencil for sketching – Can use one found around the house however make sure you remove colored eraser from end to prevent the temptation to use it.
  • Container for water - Plastic ones are lighter weight and thus make for easier transport
  • Turkish towel – to dry brushes off with
  • Natural and cellulose sponges
  • Container of Salt –Kosher, Sea, Table or all three
  • Bag or container to put everything in
