The pens used are crow quiills and Tina will bring some to loan or purchase(they are inexpensive at about $3.00)If students have technical pens or even pigma pens they can bring those, however they do not work well on glass (They will work for the background surface) Tina will bring pen cleaner and do a talk on pens, brushes and use before the project starts.
