Possible Shield Painting event
« on: October 01, 2012, 01:35:02 »
Heya all. Jencen here. The one with the 'big scary laser'

I am looking into doing an event for this years CF where you buy a bit of blank shield shaped wood, about conbadge size and then spend an hour or so painting it up in various heraldry designs.

Am wondering who would be interested?
Would be looking at £10-12 for the blanks and various paints and stencils alone with me there to "learn" you about some heraldic designs for them ^__^

Am also tempted to do a beginners chainmaille event as an introduction on how to make your own chainmaille armour ^_^
Again. Anyone interested in that sort of thing? ^_^
Thanks

The chain mail sounds interesting ^.^
I have made my statement and I stand buy it, but I could be wrong!

Is it harder to paint on wood than paper (even though they're like... the same material but... different)? Cause I'm already abysmal at painting on paper xD I'd hate to get a little shieldy-doo and just wreck it as soon as the tip touches the surface! >-<

Hrrm. Well the wood is a much harder material so you aren't worrying about soaking the paper and such.

One of my plans is to do a 'paint by numbers' type where there's already a design lasered into the wood. this would (hopefully - through the act of surface tension) stop paint running and blending
I'm also looking at maybe cutting some foam or felt with the laser. so those who can't paint could make up a fabric or foam one ^__^
Thanks

Heya matt.
It's been on Pentabarf now for a while. It showed when I logged in earlier this morning to update a few things ^__^
Thanks

Ooops, I was being a bit overzealous with the copypasta
