I really would like to do this class, but like Vanessa stated, this month has suddenly become crazy for me and on top of it I have a stupid cold. I think the worse of it is over I hope. I have company staying with me until Dec 29th. If you do start the class soon, it will be a hit or miss for me on time being able to devote to it but I will do my best. I did purchase the two colors for the clay you suggested. I still have to see if I have the pastel chalks. I thought I has some but can't find it yet. You are talking about the non-oil based kind right? I am not sure what you mean by fluffy paint brush. Do you mean a well worn brush or do you mean something like a fan brush? As for all the other supplies I have those already. I can normally attend classes anything from 12 pm to 9 pm EST, but this does depend on how I am feeling too. If it is possible to wait until after Dec 29th, it would be better for me, but if not, I will try to do my best with keeping up with the class.
