Corporea Posted February 2, 2021 Share Posted February 2, 2021 for some reason my computer illiteracy is affecting my ability to read my descriptions. I suspect it is just me being a dinosaur, but in case it isn't, here's the blurb on each of my classes. I'm also happy to answer any questions about them as well. Looking forward to seeing everyone! Skin Deep Monster Edition This is an intermediate level skin class, focused mainly on blending and glazing to achieve smooth skin tones. But unlike last fall, we’ll be going crazy! (Insert Bob Ross voice here.) This class will cover blue skin, perfect for our frosty giantess. Students should be familiar with glazing and/or layering in order to get the most out of this class. While the majority of the class will be spent on the face, I will cover placement of highlights and shadows on other skin surfaces and the differences between painting male and female figures. Please bring a brush with a nice tip. I find it easier to blend skin with a size 1 or 2 brush, as smaller brushes tend to dry out more quickly. Students will receive a handout on material covered in the class. You will also need a palette, paper towel or sponge, a cup of water and good lighting. We will be using 77592, Frost Giant Queen. Colors used in class will be linen white, nightshade purple, ultramarine shadow, fair skin, mint green, ashen blue. If you don’t have ashen blue, clouded sea would also work. Clean your miniature before class with warm water and dish soap, and remove any mold lines you’d like with a sharp knife. You do not need to prime, but please basecoat the skin areas with an even coat of ultramarine shadow. 2 hrs, hands on, intermediate Miniature 77592 Paints: 9061 linen white, 9022 nightshade purple, 9187 ultramarine shadow, 9047 fair skin, 9263 mint green, 9057 ashen blue The Dreaded Black and White We all hate them, right? Right?! This intermediate level class is designed to help take away some of the fear and show you ways to approach painting black and white. We will be using a combination of layering and either feathering or wet blending to achieve our smooth transitions, so students should be familiar with at least one of those techniques to get the most out of the class. Please bring a brush with a nice tip, such as a natural sable brush. I find it easier to blend with a size 1 or 2 brush, as smaller brushes tend to dry out more quickly. Students will receive a handout on material covered in the class. You will also need a palette, paper towel or sponge, a cup of water and good lighting. We will be using 77209 Arran Rabin. 2hrs, hands on, intermediate Miniature 77209 Arran Rabin Paints: 9162 driftwood brown, 9257 blonde hair, 9144 creamy ivory, 9061 linen white, pure white, 9022 nightshade purple, 9164 dark elf skin, 9021snow shadow, 9209 aircraft gray forgot to add: basecoat the bottom cloak in nightshade and the top cloak in blonde hair Rockin’ Crystals Ready to make those crystal elements on your minis really shine? Painting translucent crystal is fun and rewarding, and surprisingly easier than you might think! This class should help break down the process in a step by step paint-a-long. This is an intermediate level class, but even if you’re not familiar with blending techniques, you should be able to follow along as well. We’ll be using reaper’s 77312 Wall of Ice. You can use any colors to paint crystals, but I’ll be demonstrating with Pure White, Nightmare Black, Ultramarine Blue, Marine Teal and Mint Green. Students should have a nice brush available for blending, such as a natural hair sable, and be familiar with blending techniques such as wet blending or layering in order to get the most out of this class. One thing I’d recommend when practicing crystals is to go to your favorite shopping site and search for cheap rough quartz crystals. You should be able to buy these in packets of 20-50 for not too much, and they’re fun to incorporate into your minis. You can also save old plastic sprue and use a sharp knife to make your own crystals. Clean your miniature before class with warm water and dish soap, and remove any mold lines you’d like. You do not need to prime, but please basecoat the miniature with an even coat of ultramarine blue. 2hrs, hands on, intermediate Miniature 77312 wall of ice Paints: 9039 pure white, 9280 nightmare black, 9188 ultramarine blue, 9077 marine teal, 9263 mint green 8 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
