CITT Alberta has arranged for Jenny Knott, a Paint Product Manager at Rosco Labs, to come and help us explore Rosco’s coating products over 2 days.
For Part 1, Jenny will discuss each of the 4 coating products features, advantages and benefits while passing around finished samples of each product. After the presentation, roll up your sleeves and get ready to get messy with a mini project for each coating product (Flexbond, Foamcoat, Flexcoat and CrystalGel) for you to take home.
Part 2 will be devoted to making a stained glass window using Rosco clear products – CrystalGel, Flexbond Glue, Premiere Clear and Clear Acrylic Glaze. Compare and contrast the effects of each product on your plexiglass creation.
Sessions will take place at the Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton as part of the lead-up to Backstage Access.
To register for Day 1 please sign up via Backstage Access. Day 1 is open to everyone at a low price of $20+fees.
As the subject matter on the second day builds upon the training received on day 1, all experienced scenic artists wishing to take part will find their cost of $35+fees covers both days. Day 1 is limited to 15 people, with an additional 12 spots available for those taking the advanced 2-day training. Those wishing to sign up for Day 2 must email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a code and further instructions.
Please note: if you register using the code for the 2-day training your $35 includes attendance on both days. You do not need to sign up for Day 1 separately.
