Nick McLean, a Vancouver based artist and graphic designer and a member of the Monster Attack Team Canada, will help you select, prepare, construct and paint your very own model Gundam Mecha-Robot model kit.

For those unfamiliar with Gundam Mecha-Robot model kits, these are plastic, snap together, models of Mecha-Robots (they look like transformers, but they don’t change into vehicles) that are about 6" to 8" tall. Out of the box the model has a basic colour scheme created by the colours of plastic each piece is molded in, but through the use of simple painting techniques one can either enhance their “native” colours or apply a totally unique paint scheme.

For a few visual examples, see the attached image below or click the following link for a full size version: http://bit.ly/18WVd2V

This workshop is ideal for tweens and teens as well as adults as the paints are all water soluble acrylics and the size of the models make it easy to see, and thus paint, the details.
