The class starts with an introduction to pinstriping; its various forms and a quick demonstration. We discuss the different paints available for pinstriping, the preparation of the work surfaces and how to get ready for painting.

There is a discussion on the pinstripe brush and how to get it ready for use as well as  its care and maintenance. We will talk about thinners and safety precautions, and we show you the templates and patterns that are supplied with the course. We will also tell you about suppliers and galleries of interest to this trade.

We then start practicing basic strokes and brush control.

After lunch you will work and practice on actual panels and objects in the workshop.
