MWTM - Introduction to Plastic Structures and Painting With Acrylics and Pan Pastels - Part A

Event #: 

--> This is a two part session that continues on Tuesday <--

Fred Headon, MMR will take you thru the steps of building a Plastic Structure for the first time. This is a great project for those who are new to building structures and those who have lots of experience. This clinic is not just about building a plastic structure kit; it is also about the new ways of painting these types of plastic kits. You will be taught to use Acrylics or craft type paint plus the use of Pan Pastels as a whole new way of painting a structure. You will be amazed at what you can do simply with a brush and a sponge. You will be assisted by 3 other MMRs during your hands-on experience. This is a two (2) part clinic. In the first clinic session, you will learn to assemble the kit project and apply the basic paint foundation. Due to the need for drying time, we will then have a second session on painting the structure with Acrylics and Pan Pastels.

Optional tools

Optivisor, extra work light. These are handy tools which you could use in our sessions, but it is not essential that you buy them just for this week. It is your option!

A good way to carry all of these tools is to buy a small inexpensive plastic tackle box. These are usually available at department stores year round.

Please note an updated tool list may be sent to you the week prior to the convention.
If not listed here, we will provide materials such as glues and paints
