Later this year I’ll be one-half of the teaching team of an airbrushing class devoted to painting wargaming miniatures, at Barwell Body Works near Leicester, England.
Steve, the owner of the car auto-body shop, is a vastly experienced airbrusher and together with Ashley, another highly skilled artist he works with, organizes airbrushes classes throughout the year, including beginner’s courses and specific classes about painting animals, portraits and other subjects.
I’m excited about it and a little scared/apprehensive (because I’ll be getting paid for this and people will be expecting to learn stuff they haven’t done before), but it’ll be a pretty cool experience no matter what. I’m not expecting any problems though – I think the biggest thing will be trying to show people how to do various things on their models when they’ll be using sample models that they probably won’t have in their armies. It’ll still be good, though, and it’s definitely encouragement to keep me practicing in the months leading up to November! I do try to use my airbrush at least a couple of times a week, minimum, just so I don’t lose the ‘feel’ of using it.
If anyone is interested in the class, it’s scheduled for the 23rd of November (click here for details).
