They’ll be going over the fundamentals like: 

  • Airbrush Maintenance and best practice.

  •  Color application using an airbrush, creating smooth transitions across different areas.
  • Edge Highlighting
  • Battle damage and weathering using a variety of products, from acrylic paint to oils, pigments to enamels.
  • Applying waterslide transfers. Including cutting and fitting them in irregular surfaces and blending them into a finished paint job.
  •  Detailing eye lenses, weapons, exhausts and tracks.

Knowledge For A Lifetime

 Our focus is on helping you understand each stage of the process and how to apply it not only to miniatures you have brought to class but across future projects.

Don’t go in the mindset of getting an annoying project done. The models you bring will be your canvas for testing and practicing. Focus on keeping the knowledge that you learn retained for a long-time use!

Like we’ve said before, this is a rare opportunity and a perfect chance for you to step up your model-painting game. There are only twenty total seats for both of the classes so go ahead and set the date for the event and reserve your ticket! Will you be going to Indiana for the painting lessons?
