Fabulous First Face Up Workshop

11:00-2:00

by Bo Bergemann
Join Bo & other doll friends to learn to do your own quality resin BJD Face Up. Bo will bring all the supplies you’ll need to do this one in class. Everything including instructions and all supplies will go home with you for further practice for just $69.95. This class is targeted at all skill levels with tips and tricks that might help any face up hobbyist. However, we do expect most in class will be entirely new to this art form so Bo plans on covering all the basics and going step by step. No particular skill set needed except good use of your hands & eyes (so bring reading glasses if you need them) and a willingness to try. Plan to have fun and do your best and you can go home with a really beautiful face up ready to become your own original artist doll. Bodies are available at sign up for a very serious discount when ordered in advance. Seats and doll bodies are limited so sign up early for the best options. Meet Bo and enjoy some Aloha in Texas as Bo says she believes all classes should be fun first and she likes to give stuff away! At this convention, this will be the place she does just that!

Limited to 20 people
Cost: $60 + 9.95 for shipping and handling
