New Craft Workshop - Flowers For Delivery

I'm so excited to announce a new craft workshop! Flowers For Delivery is a miniature craft workshop focused on model hand painting techniques. Give an ordinary looking miniature scooter a complete makeover transformation. Turn it into a french-chic inspired miniature delivery scooter!

In this particular piece, there will still be some clay work. Learn how to make the bouquet of purple hydrangeas to go along with your miniature scooter using air dry clay.

The difference between this and the other workshop offerings is, there is painting homework to be completed by the student after class. I've put a lot of thought into planning this workshop, to ensure that learning is maximized in the most effective manner. And the truth also is, hand painting is not difficult once you grasp the techniques, though it is time consuming, the outcome is very beautiful. For the piece to look beautiful, you need several coats of paint to go over your model. Because of this, the painting aspect of it will be completed as a take-home assignment.

I will teach you how to handle this paint during class, as it is very different from the paints used in most of the other workshops. We will also review your painting each week when you come for class.

For those who love hand painting, you'll enjoy this. I find painting to be both very therapeutic and creative. If you feel the same way, I think you will love it. Also we are talking about detailed painting here. There are many nooks and crannies in this piece, therefore one has to be mindful and focused while painting. Though tedious, I'm sure the polished looking art piece at the end of completion is something you will treasure for a long time.

Oh, I've also prepared some notes for the class. This is so that you can refer to the finer tips of hand painting when you are doing it at home.

  1. This workshop is amazing and i wish i could take it. :( I love painting....maybe you can make this to PDF tutorial? hehe Happy day and love to you!

  2. Hi Jacqueline,

    Thank you for your sweet comments! I love painting just as much!

    As for the tutorial, transcribing this particular process into a PDF tutorial will be very challenging. There are many nitty gritty, yet important components to it, and static pictures alone won't be sufficient to describe the proper process. I suspect it will turn into a wordy and lengthy tutorial, which is likely to be a turn-off for most people. So I think a PDF tutorial for this is not the most suited form of learning in this case.

    But if you ever can make the commitment to come to Singapore for a workshop, do let me know! I think you'll love this!
