For wiping brushes: Paper towel or old rag

Container for water: I use old food containers like yogurt

Palette: Paper plate or waxed paper or piece of glass or plastic x2

Brushes Used: #1 Round, #6 Round, #6 Bright, #6 Flat, #8 Filbert, (optional) Fan Brush

Easel: This is optional. You can work flat on a table with no easel for most paintings. An easels come in handy because they save table space and some techniques like dripping require a vertical canvas. Table top easels are great, light weight and affordable. Heres one of my faves:
