2013 MiniCals Workshop Series

This is a reminder of the upcoming MiniCals Workshops through June 2013. All classes are 1-inch scale and will be held at 315 Digital Drive, Morgan Hill, CA. (The first 2013 workshop, "French Boulangerie (bakery)" was held on January 19.)

*February 16:  Experiment with fimo, kitchen clay and air dry clay making breads and cakes.  Learn coloring techniques for your baked goods.  They will look great in the display window built in January’s workshop.  Molds, paints and clays will be provided. $15

March 23:  Learn a paint/tissue/glue texturing technique for the exterior of a vignette box.  Make an egg carton/slate floor and electrify the box. $25

*April 27:  We will build and tile a sink/cabinet/wine rack and paint wine bottles.  This could be a sink/cabinet without a wine rack if that is your choice.  This will furnish the March workshop vignette. $20

May 18:  Regular solder vs. liquid solder.  Experiment with both and you will complete a simple metal project in 1 inch scale. $17

June 22:  Learn how to create decals and decorate plates. $15

A basic toolbox and gluing jig is all that is needed.
