New Backdrop Painting Video

I have just completed a homemade 1.3 hour video on backdrop painting.  It covers perspective of the layout and the walls, brushes, paints, techniques with step by step explanations to make it easy for everyone to learn.  It is being offered to people who will be attending my platinum clinic in Peabody Mass Model Railroad Expo and Premium clinic at Scotty Mason's Mansfield Craftsman Structure  Convention this fall.  From there I will be looking at potentially wider distribution possibilities.

Hi Chris,

Any chance of purchasing one directly from you? I can't make it to any of the shows on the east coast this fall, but I'd sure love to attend your clinic on background painting.

Hi Jim. That would not be a problem. I will be field testing them at the NG Convention in Hickory. I have not set a cost as yet as I want to get a few person's opinion regarding quality pricing etc.
