The Airbrush Company presents a one day class; Modeller's Beginning Airbrushing (Step 2), with tutor Robin Carpenter of Scalewarship Ltd.
The airbrush skills that are taught on this class can be applied to all genres of modelling.
This course is the next step on from Robins introductory course (TC-RC1) and is based around water-based paints; mainly the LifeColor brand. You bring something to paint (it can be any model you like) and the tutor will take you through from beginning to end, mixing paint, priming, painting base colours, camouflages, masking, washes and clear coats.
This course is ideal for any model painter who would like to learn more about the correct use of LifeColor and other acrylic paints, or would like to switch from using solvents to water-based paints.
Both steps 1 and 2 of the Modeller's Beginning Airbrushing courses can be booked together as a two-day class TC-RC3 and you will save £10 for attending the classes consecutively.
