Materials for Drawing and Painting Yantras

  • A3 watercolour textured paper, 300g/m2 (the best paper is cold pressed from Arches)
  • Drawing compass – a ‘bow’ compass (or two) is recommended as they are stable and do not move when being used.
  • Pencils – H, 2H and HB
  • Straight edge ruler (30 cm)
  • Eraser
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Watercolour paint set – the solid ‘pans’ would be preferable to the tubes – (about 12 colours, you don’t need many colours, really just the three primary colours).
  • Palette (if not already included in your paint set anyway)
  • Watercolour brushes size 0, 2, 3 or 5

Suggested optional materials:

  • Sketchbook A4 for notes and smaller drawings
  • Pencils B, a 2B or 3B for darker lines/shading
  • Mechanical pencils 0.5/0.3
  • Kneaded rubber eraser
  • Elastomer eraser MONO zero (Tombow) – very helpful for erasing small areas.
  • Sandpaper for sharpening your pencils
  • Drop bow compass
  • Coloured pencils
  • Silver and gold gouache paints
