Where should I start and with what?

Hey everybody,

glad to be here. I have just started getting into prop making and I am really interested in different make-up techniques and learning how to do certain things.

That being said, I am not a natural builder. I have never been a crafty person but I want to challenge myself to see if I can create something really cool.

I was hoping to get some feedback on what would be a good starter piece to try, a good starter class to take  and what I need to buy to get started?

Thanks so much for the input,
Lukas

    Hi Lukas, and welcome to our community!

    Where you start often depends on what type of projects you want to work on first.

    My usual suggestion is our "Garage Monsters" lessons by Shannon Shea as they cover a lot of techniques and materials that can be used in a wide variety of projects.  They also focus heavily on tools and materials that are readily available to most people with access to an art store or hardware store.

    If Garage Monsters does not seem like a good starting point for you, please let me know and I'm sure we can find something!
