Join us at Malenka Originals to learn everything you need to jump into your Chalk Paint™ projects!'Techniques One' is a thorough introduction into Annie Sloan's paints and waxes, and will give you the confidence and knowledge to start tackling your painting projects, big and small. Perfect for the beginner, but also invaluable for those who have already been using Chalk Paint™, but would like to refine their techniques.
Working on sample pieces of wood, you'll create the following finishes:
- Aged, antique, distressed finish
- A soft, beachy, washed finish
- Rough, rustic finish
- Smooth, polished modern finish
- Beautiful dry brushed finish
As soon as we're done with the paint, we'll get into the wax! This is your chance to learn proper waxing technique, and create amazing effects. You'll get the chance to experiment with three different waxes: Clear Wax, Dark Wax and Black Wax.
You'll also get the practice with different types and sizes of paint brushes and wax brushes; try out different grits of sandpaper to get the effect you want; and play with a number of different Chalk Paint™ colours.And if you'd like to shop when you're done, you'll receive 15% off your purchases!
Cost is $75 + tax. Spots are limited. Please note: a $25 non-refundable deposit will be retained for all cancellations.
