Frieze Painting and Flag Making workshop

Recommended Posts

I just attended the Admiralty Models Frieze Painting and Flag Making Workshop this weekend in beautiful Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, Canada.

 

What a wonderful experience it was and what an unbelievably great bunch of people model makers are!

 

I chose a version of the Jolly Roger for my flag as I like to keep the lessons simple and I won't be needing a flag for my Bellerophon for a while.  My darling wife planted the flag in the terrarium... I would stuff a coin under it (buried treasure) but am concerned it might affect the plants.

My attempts at frieze painting were (as David said they would be) better on the second day as I was more comfortable handling the small brushes. You can see the difference (top right items were the second day).

Thank you Admiralty Models for providing a venue for a memorable and helpful experience.

Better than I could do.  What kind of brushes are you using?

For the frieze painting I used a number 1 and 000 and occasionally 00.

 

For the flag was somewhat the same to do the line work and get in close to the edge of the image but I could have used a slightly wider brush for most of the base, possibly a 1/4" wide but hadn't brought one.

 

There was also need for a wash brush later stages of the flag.

 

I was surprised at how simple it is to do.... but I'll need more practise to make it look more realistic

Just like everything else with model making!

Congrats, well done Alan !

 

It reminds me when years ago I was experimenting with "Corel Draw" software....., "lighting" out 2D objects giving them a  3D touch

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
