SENMM: Sky-Earth Non-Metallic Metal

Ian Markon

Advanced Painting

Saturday, March 6 2021

10:00 - 12:00

In this class, we will learn how to create the illusion of a landscape reflection in metal. We will accomplish this technique (known as SENMM; Sky-Earth Non-Metallic Metal; or, more simply, chrome) primarily through a thoughtful application of light theory augmented with a significant amount of blending. I will paint an example miniature while giving you step-by-step instructions for how to follow along on your own miniature at home. SENMM is a more advanced technique that requires some amount of blending skill to pull off reliably, so I would discourage beginners from attending unless they are simply willing to watch along with the demonstration. For those who consider themselves up to the challenge, please bring your favorite brush (preferably a good Kolinsky sable one) and tons of zeal for learning!
The only prep work you will need to do is to wash your bones miniature with soap and water before the class; no priming necessary!
