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
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

you will leave with the confidence and skills to tackle your own
projects at home.
