This beginner-level workshop teaches the basic skill set necessary to paint most miniatures. Students will be taught how to inspect miniatures for flaws, correct them, and prime for paint. Techniques taught will include paint thinning, washes, and dry brushing. At the end of the workshop, students should feel confident in their ability to paint a miniature up to a tabletop quality level. (2 hours) Limit 15 participants, $5 materials fee.
This advanced-level workshop focuses on teaching skills for more experienced painters. Students will develop and improve their brush techniques such as glazing, wet blending, edge highlighting, and two-brush blending. Expert painters teach basic color theory, lighting, and shading, and also instruct students in the usage of a wet palette as a tool for miniature painting. (2 hours) Limit 15 participants, $10 materials fee.
