Davids Favourite Artis Opus brush
David Soper is back with another Painting masterclass at the Element Games North West Gaming Centre on the 1st and 2nd June!
The chosen model for this master class is a Rockgut Troggoth from Games Workshop.
Some time will be available on Saturday morning for assembly; however, we strongly encourage participants to assemble their Troggoth in advance of this if, at all possible. There will be the opportunity to do this at Element Games on the Friday and David will be present to offer support during the afternoon.
Both Saturday and Sunday will feature a strong practical element with participants having the opportunity for plenty of 'hands on' experience. This will be interspersed with explanations of the underlying theory and demonstrations of the techniques required for all key stages of the painting progress. David will provide one to one advice and support to all participants throughout.
Topics & techniques to be covered will include:
Assembly, preparation, priming and base colour;
An overview of contrast and colour theory and their application to painting miniatures;
Creating life like paint schemes;
Painting volumes and forms;
Creating and enhancing painted texture - stippling, dry brushing and painted freehand textures;
Adding real surface textures to a painted model;
Adding finishing touches and special effects to a painted miniature.
A suitable painting lamp
A portable hairdryer
Tools and equipment for prep/clean up of a plastic model- A craft knife/scalpel, plastic glue/super glue, fine grit sand paper
Primer (if you prefer to use one)
Palette/wet palette (whichever you prefer to use)
Paint brushes - I recommend using good quality sable brushes. The brush size you use depends upon your personal preference but for the size of mini we will be working on sizes 0,1 & 2 would be appropriate.
David has used the following paints on his Troggoth. Participants are welcome to choose equivalent colours from other paint ranges if they prefer. Alternatively they may wish to develop their own colour scheme.
Bugmans Glow (Base)
Rakarth Flesh (Base)
Mechanicus Standard Grey (Base)
Deepkin Flesh (layer)
Please feel free to bring along any other colours as you wish.
