Ironman Figures - call out to artists

Ironman Figures - call out to artists

The Art Museum will produce 73 small IRONMAN figures for local artists to decorate. 

Please note that the allocation of figures will work on a first come first serve basis, so please call us to add your name to the list asap. 

Each artist will only be able to decorate one figure. The IRONMAN figures are in production and will be available in mid-August. Once the figures are ready we will call you to come and collect your figure to paint. Artists will only have a few days to paint and decorate the works so that they can be returned to the Art Museum on the 22 August, to be on exhibit. 

The painted figures will be on sale at the Art Museum during the IRONMAN event. Artists can decide on the sale price of their figures. The Art Museum commission of 30% will be added to the sale price.

The figures stand 60 cm high and are made from resin. You can use most types of paint on resin. The base colour of the figures will be off white. 

We encourage artists to experiment and have fun, add accessories etc. 

We would like Junior artists (ages 10-17 years) to respond as well.

You may contact Emma/Roxanne for further details on 0415062000 or
