Workshop on Basic Hand Painting Techniques at Miniature Art Studio

Over the weekend of 25 November, I conducted a full day demo and hands-on workshop on basic hand painting techniques at the premise of Miniature Art Studio. Given the short notice we were fortunate to gather 10 enthusiastic participants to sign up. It was a full day painting event which includes a 1/35 Alpine figure, Vallejo Paints and a bento set-lunch.

My main objective for this workshop was to impart the basic understanding of paint application necessary to create a smooth gradient for tonal and color transitions. Personally this is an optimum size for a full day workshop as it allows me sufficient time to provide personalized guidance for each participant.

As a surprise for the attendees, a lucky draw was held towards the end of the workshop to give away the demo figure specially painted for this workshop. Congratulations to Raymond for being the lucky recipient.

A special thanks to Michael and Bernard for organizing the event and Mun Wai and Wen Pu for helping out with the logistics for the day.

Good Outing at Scale Model Challenge 2017

It gives me great pleasure to announce that our local team fared very well with two silver medals, two bronze medals and 4 highly commended awards at the prestigious Scale Model Challenge competition held in the Netherlands over the weekend of 21 October.  A special thanks to Allan Yong of Malaysia for helping to bring my figures over to the competition - whom himself has also fared quite well bagging a Highly Commended award for himself.

Well done guys!
