Another Wonderfest has come and gone!  If you've ever needed proof that Wonderfest is a blast, then check out these happy campers! Here it is folks, the official 2023 WF "Party Zone" portrait. Thanks to Mr. Jim Lawrence for his mad photography skills and patience!


   Hey Wonderfest, are you ready to get small this year? As in small scale micro-modeling? Well, we are, and we’re proud to announce AFM’s all-new Mummy Diorama Class! The Mummy Lives, and you could be the one to bring him to life! Small scale modeling requires specialized techniques and this comprehensive class will teach an impressive array of modeling challenges unlike any training seminar before it!
  Heading up this innovative class is AFM’s very own Dave Prosser, an award-winning modeler with over 40 years of modeling excellence in creating life-like scale figures, vignettes, and dioramas. For this unique class, Mr. Prosser (AKA The Professor) has personally organized a timed out schedule that’ll maximize your micro skills throughout the day with the following approach and applications to build and paint a complete mini-model diorama!
Techniques covered will include:
•  Working with Metallic Waxes to define metallic surfaces.
•  Wet-on-wet painting techniques: mixing and blending colors    
  on the model.
• ”Painting” with pastel shade sticks.
•  Using alcohol to create surface textures and weathering
•  Plug n’ play lighting kit to create a flickering fire effect in a fire   
  pit custom-made just for this class.

   Now, pair all of that along with Black Heart’s Mini Mummy Diorama and you have the perfect class for an awesome day to start your weekend at WonderFest 2024!  AFM’s all-day “Model Boot Camp” will be held on Friday, May 31st; between the hours of 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Louisville, KY!
