Insider 9-19-2011

Some of you may have seen my announcement on the Privateer Press forums about a painting class I held at Card Kingdom in Seattle, Washington. This past weekend, I taught the class, and I had a blast! I planned the class to have a lot of hands-on painting time, so it was split up over two days. I provided Fiona the Black for all of my students and brought a set of P3 paints for everyone to try.

We covered everything from miniature prep (filing, gluing, and priming) to painting faces, hair, cloth, metals, and everything in between. Everyone asked a lot of great questions, we told some stories, and had lots of laughs.

Plenty of people showed up to the class eager to learn. I had one person in the class who had never painted a mini before in his life; he did an outstanding job with his first one. A photo of his mini is below. Pretty good for a first try, huh?

At the end of the weekend, everyone said they had a great time and learned a lot, and a few even said it was the best mini they’d ever painted. They also gave me a laundry list of topics to cover next time.

I will be doing regular classes and daylong seminars on special topics. In addition, to classes, we are planning on holding a painting club, where you can paint with other people and meet some of the other painters in the area. If you are a local or are going to be in the area, let me know! I’d love to see some new faces!
