MWTM - Building Structures With Paper

Event #: 

Jim Gore, MMR will take you on an amazing journey into Cardstock and Paper buildings. This hands-on session is all about building structures from paper which has been printed to look like a building. This session will cover the construction of a basic cardstock kit. He will cover printing, cardstock selection, and tools and techniques and some detailing and weathering ideas for cardstock in general. You will be amazed at how real these card stock buildings look. And yes, we will build a structure - “The Silver City Nevada Mine Shed” from Clever Models.

Optional tools:

Optivisor, extra work light. These are handy tools which you could use in our sessions, but it is not essential that you buy them just for this week. It is your option!
A good way to carry all of these tools is to buy a small inexpensive plastic tackle box. These are usually available at department stores year round.

Please note an updated tool list may be sent to you the week prior to the convention.
If not listed here, we will provide materials such as glues and paints.
