Chalk Paint® Basics Workshop in our Village Gate location on Friday, March 16th, 2018 STARTING @ 1:00 PM in the afternoon. (Parking in the back of the building!)
Depending on where you are in the United States- you will find other Annie Sloan Stockist would call this class both the BASICS and ADVANCED because the techniques we offer are beyond beginner. I should probably rename this workshops "Basics and Beyond" then!
In this casual hands-on introductory workshop you will not only have FUN! And don't let the name of this workshop confuse you because you will be learning alot more than just "basics" when it comes to Chalk Paint® Decorative Paints and Waxes by Annie Sloan. This paint is not one dimensional and there is so much functionality in it - let us show you how to take advantage of that and create pieces that will be drop dead gorgeous!
All supplies will be provided. First you pick out a sample pot of Chalk Paint® of your favorite color that you will use when learning how to wet distress. But from the very beginning, you will learn about making a glaze/stain using Annie's soft, dark wax. Then you will be painting a one and two-color technique- showing you how to add a little dry brushing for effect and creating a wash. A very important finishing step in regards to distressing and sharing our tips & tricks and making sure you can create a professional effect. You will create a wash and learn the fundamentals of how to apply it properly. Lastly- we will focus in on using the wax! Hands on training on how to age and tone your finishes with clear and dark waxes and the proper application process. (applying the wax is often the biggest issue Chalk Paint® users have- what is learned in this workshop will eliminate that from happening to you!) And hands on experimenting with "polishing" the Chalk Paint® using sand paper.
You will leave the workshop with your own sample boards, a sample pot of Chalk Paint® in the color of your choice, and a funky gold gilded picture frame that we will paint and learn a wet distressing skill on; and most importantly you will leave with the confidence and skills to tackle your own projects at home.
