If you have ever wanted to learn from the master custom car painter and founder of House of Kolor, Jon Kosmoski, now is your chance. Jon will be appearing at Meguiar's MotorEx (July 11 & 12 at the Sydney Showgrounds) and teaching a series of custom painting workshops in Sydney and Melbourne in July. The workshops and seminars are cleverly split into day and evening formats to cater for both qualified painters and general motoring enthusiasts. A highlight of the tour will be a hands-on Koolest Klass on the Planet with step by step application of Kandy paint on a 1950 Mercury and a 1932 Ford Hi Boy Roadster.
The 2009 Kosmoski Kandy Tour kicks off over the weekend of the 11th and 12th of July at Meguiar's MotorEx. Jon will present a series of 'free' seminars, sharing his unsurpassed knowledge of the automotive industry and customising. He will also select and present the Jon Kosmoski 'choice' Award.
The 2009 Kosmoski Kandy Tour does not get any better than this, for painters eager to learn from the master. Jon will take the mystery out of Kandy painting before your eyes. He will be preparing and painting an entire vehicle in Kandy, the most difficult colour to paint. Not only will Jon pass on his incredible technical and application skills in the Sydney and Melbourne workshops, he will also share the secrets of painting for profit. The Koolest Klass on the Planet will have plenty of opportunities to access Jon and ask your questions. For qualified painters this is a once in a life time opportunity to learn as Jon paints a car with you, not just talks you through the process.
Scheduled dates for the tour (subject to change) are:
Tuesday 14th & Wednesday 15th July - 2 day course, Sydney,
Wednesday 15th July Evening - 3 hour seminar, Sydney
Friday 17th & Saturday 18th July - 2 day course, Melbourne,
Saturday 18th July Evening - 3 hour seminar, Melbourne
Further information on the Sydney and Melbourne workshops dates, times, cost and booking information are available at www.houseofkolor.com.au
Space is limited so book early. During the day, the hands on workshops are designed for pre-qualified painters only. Then at the conclusion of each two day workshop a three hour evening seminar is being conducted to share the secrets of the work and view the vehicle just painted, with anyone interested to learn more about custom painting.
