Class 101

AN INTRODUCTION TO MINIATURE PAINTING 


 NEXT CLASS SIGNUP: TBD


 In this three and a half hour introductory class to display-style miniature painting, students will learn to reinforce where and why the highlights and shadows are properly placed via “THE STOP SIGN RULE.”

Students will also learn two basic techniques for blending colors together. We will be using the two brush blending and glazing method(s).

Proper tools are the key!
For two brush blending size 2 and 3 brushes work best . Any of the popular miniature painting brushes on the market can be used as long as they are of either size listed above.

The same goes for glazing, the only difference being the sizes used are 1, 0, and 00.

‘THE CONTRAST HAMMER’ 


 NEXT CLASS SIGNUP: MAY 26th


Note: It is recommended to take the 101 course before the 102. However, it is not required.

In this three and a half hour intermediate class, students will learn how to enhance their display miniatures using the five basic principles of contrast: Light/Dark, Cool/Warm, Complementary Opposing Colors, Matte/Shiny & Texture/Smooth. These five facets of contrast will bring your models to the next level. Students will also learn how to use these techniques to become a more dynamic painter and gain insight on what judges are looking for in a competition.
