Care and maintenance of equipment to ensure reliability and performance.
The correct use of the many different types of paint and their properties.

I will cut a masking kit of a moving Eagle which I will demonstrate for you to follow with your own version.
Plus highlighting, starbursts, water blobs and cloud effects will be practiced to help with your control of the airbrush and masks.
 
   

Module 2 - Intermediate (Six hour course)

An exploration of the ways to produce and transfer an image.
An in-depth look at the various techniques involved in painting on different materials and surfaces.

Using the techniques you have learnt from module 1 and 2 we will produce a waving flag with shading and highlights and a sample of lettering on a curved surface using transparent and solid colour.
With a little practice you will easily be able to create basic images either of your own design or replicate existing basic images to a satisfying standard.
