Sproket Masterclass 3-4 June Product Description

Sproket’s Painting Masterclass with David Soper

3-4 June 2017

Element Games are very pleased to host quadruple Slayer Sword winner David Soper for a two day Painting Masterclass! The workshop will consist of a combination of theory, demonstrations and practical experience. Every entrant will receive an Abyssal Warlord from Scale75 (assembly required) as part of the ticket price, and this model will form the subject for the Masterclass.

Both days 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 both days.

By focussing their efforts for the two days to just one area of the model, for example a leg. participants will be able to gain practical experience of all stages of the process. This will give them the knowledge and experience to be able to complete the model in their own time. It will also remove the pressure to try and finish the entire model in just two days!

The class is strictly limited to 16 entrants however there will be a Seminar on more general techniques on the Saturday evening that will be open to the public (ticket price on the door).

Capacity: so that David can spend enough time with each student this class is strictly limited to 16
Price: £160.00 which includes an un-assembled Abyssal Warlord from Scale 75
