Tools and methods

Students paint by themselves, but under the watchful eye of Pekka. 
Previous experience is not necessary, although it doesn’t probably do any harm either... You can also bring your own your previous works for evaluation.
The paints we use are alkyd based and they are thinned with white spirit. It is a normal household product, but if you know that you are allergic to it, please let us know.  
You will need work wear as well as something to eat for the lunch break. Coffee and pastries are on the house.

Sometimes people bring their own items to be striped on site, but unfortunately we have no chance to work with them during the workshop hours, sorry!


What's included in the price?
We use pinstriping paints, please bring  a transparent ruler, a pencil, hardness of HB or softer. If you have purchased your own brushes, please take them with you for us to check for the eventual need of trimming. The workshop brushes will be supplied by us. If you have previously done some striping, feel free to take  your stuff for evaluation.  You need work wear as well as something to eat for the lunch break. Coffee and pastries are on the house.
