Multi-Pack Skate 10
Multi-Pack Skate 10 With this Multi-Pack, there are enough Thin Air Presses, molds, veneer sets, glue, and finishing tools so that a group of 10 students plus the teacher, can all build a Street Deck.
Specially set up for teachers, the Multi-Pack 10 also includes the mini-curriculum and an extra set of veneer so that learning and preparation can be done before offering this project in a classroom.
(Wheels and trucks are not included).
The foam mold, Thin Air Press Bag and pump, edging tool and breather netting are designed to be used for many, many builds.
Keep all your reusable kit parts in good working order by following the maintenance tips included with the kit.
How long will it take to complete these boards?
The minimum length of time, with graphics, would be 12.5 hours. And there really is no maximum length of time, as many teachers continue with the graphics part for an entire term.
Do you offer discounts for teachers?
The Multi-Packs have bulk discounts built in, as if these items were purchased individually, the cost would be higher.
What is the cost per student?
So much of the kit is reusable, so without those costs, the veneer and glue per student is about 20 € per board.
What age is recommended for this program?
We recommend not younger that 10 years of age. Many younger students are eager, but their dexterity and skills might not quite be enough to manage.
What about applying the graphics?
While we do not have pre-printed graphics sheets as with our other shapes, making a custom board is even more exciting if the students design and paint their own graphics. Involve the school’s art department if you are not comfortable with that aspect of the project, or a local visiting artist.
What kind of graphics can be done?
We have had our best successes with student-grade acrylic paints and mylar hand-cut stencils. Spray paint, safely done outside or in a spray booth, and wood burning, work really well too. “Sharpie art” is fun, although any hand painting process is a one-chance process and is sometimes a surprise. Airbrushing, staining, marquetry and inlay techniques are all done successfully on hand made skateboards. There is no best answer to this question!
