Any interest in a 1 or 2 hour workshop monthly hosted by myself?

Topics could be.....

Tools of the trade
Miniature prep
basing
base coats
highlights
shades
color theory
speed painting

I am very much interested. I think your work is fantastic and viewing it tends to shame me.

Plus I tend to get lots of grief from my wife about the hobby/my painting and I know that if I start being able to produce cool minis I'll start getting some support.

(Although I know this will inevitably lead to me making her a "pretty" army, probably confrontation figs, but I accept that)

If it fits my schedule (and you're going to do it at SciFi Wink ) I would be interested. I don't feel that my minis are all that bad, but I could definitely use some help to improve!!

dude i would gladly attend!

my painting supplies are all at home.. so i might be underequipped.. but that sounds like it would be a lot of fun and i could really use it. I know i can paint well.. but i need to be taught the right way to do things.

Hopefully a weekend? at sci-fi?

I would attend to. I have been thinking about taking my painting to the next level, just slow to actually start.

Not only would I like to attend, BUT, I really need to attend. Laughing . My skills are very soft, and tech is my biggest problem.

I need to be taught, by hand, *in person*, the proper stages and tech during so. Other than that, If I could learn and stick to a solid practice, I might have some abilitys. L

Lord knows, I have plenty of paint, and brushes, oh, and minitures to practice with.

Now there's a potentially killer topic at all levels. John M you should run a course on paint mediums (characterstics by mixing and company) as well.

It is great idea. Even get togethers with other painters is an excellent way to pick things up. Great way to learn stuff or get a new prespective/idea.


Hey Brian, your painting is just fine. Although any of us could stand to kick it up a notch.

Im all about speed painting. I think a miniture shoud be 100% painted every night, No matter what. Maybe thats why my paints look like they do, But I have no patients to wait aroound for all the particulars.

I dont see any problems with speed painting, do you??


Shading is another area I want to learn. If I could just learn the thickness/thiness of paints, and what they should be, I would be a really good painter. Thats half my battle, when painting. Knowing the mixing ratios.

I'm in the same boat Sigma. I spend time on things, but I still speed paint. I think they still look pretty good Smile

This probly only come with experience, but I would like to know hpw to recover from a bad mistake, you know when it just keeps getting worse and worse, then before you know it, its time to strip and start over.That really drives me nutty. bom

I think tech should be a big part of this class, if it happens.

Certainly the multitude of other benafits outweight this. I love you

Is there any target date (or range) this would be aimed for? Or is this going to be something that will just happen when it happens (some week you will know a day is open post it)?

I'm thinking 1 time a month. Like the 3rd Friday or something like that. I need to make sure it is OK w/ the store first.
