The 26 Letters is as you would imagine a series of letters forming the alphabet.
Within these 26 demonstrations you will be shown a wealth of knowledge!
Why did I decide to make these demonstrations?…
So I was thinking one day about what would of been the most help when I first started out on my career as a Signpainter. The answer was fairly obvious….
A way of seeing how a seasoned pro worked, a way being taught all the amazing tricks, techniques and tips that are accumulated throughout a pros career. The very things that make your work stand out in the crowd.
Now you can of course pick up some of the methods taught here from books. Some of it you can’t! The fact remains, it’s far easier to learn a skill when you are actually shown how to do it in real-time with the instructor explaining what they are doing whilst working.
Unlike a live demo, here you are able to pause, go back and watch the demo as often as you like. Until you fully understand what is being taught.
The series is designed as a learning tool for people who are already studying Signpainting, who want to take their skills to the next level.
It’s also developed for you if you are just starting out. It’s an an invaluable tool which you can use to fastback your skills, helping you towards your dream of becoming a pro Signpainter!
In a nutshell if you are to learning to paint signs. This is your new encyclopaedia!
The easiest way to learn a skill is to watch an experienced pro in that field demonstrating time served techniques.
Each letter is handpainted using various techniques, tips and tricks which I have learnt over my 33 years of being a signpainter. Some of these where happy accidents which then came to be common practice in my workshop. Most of the things I show you you can’t learn from books as they simply aren’t in them.
All the demonstrations are filmed in realtime with me commentating as I’m painting.
They are filmed close up so you can see what is going on. You don’t need to see my face! You need to see what I’m doing with my hands and how I’m manipulating the brushes, materials and other tools I’m using to produce each of the letters.
This is a visual course, there are no boring essays to read, just easy to follow demos which as I said you can pause, rewind, fast forward and watch as many times as you wish!
