The i3detroit DIY Dentistry event was a big hit, and everyone had a fantastic time- at least until the anesthesia wore off! i3 member Dustin returned from a recent trip to Latvia armed with the knowledge and tools to make this class a jaw-crackin’ success.
Dustin began the day with a brief history of DIY dentistry, and provided many DIY DOs and DON’Ts (for example, DON’T use bondo for fillings; DO visit Thingiverse for fillings and crowns you can 3-D print with ease.)
We just had an awesome time running a paint-along class with everyone’s favorite late 80′s-early 90′s eccentric oil painter, Bob Ross. Yelp was kind enough to sponsor us with free snacks and drinks for this event! i3 member, Kevin, (while donning a bob ross wig) guided the students through the intricacies of wet-on-wet oil painting.
The students spent two and a half hours following along creating a majestic mountain landscape while learning innovative ways of working with oil on canvas. While the paint will take about two weeks to dry, the painters were able to take their paintings home that day carefully transported with plastic wrap. The painters can now demonstrate their newly-learned skills in wielding a fan brush, and palette knife.
There was a huge demand for the event, so we will definitely be running more of these in the coming weeks. Stay tuned, and like us on facebook for future updates!
