In this comprehensive workshop you'll learn (from an experienced Annie Sloan trained instructor) all about the amazing range of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ products and get your hands dirty learning how to use them. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ is THE original Chalk Paint™ and for 30 years has been the worlds most loved, easy to use, environmentally friendly, non-toxic decorative paint.
This workshop is for both beginners & experienced painters wanting to know about the Annie Sloan way of making over furniture. We will cover basic painting techniques such as contemporary flat finish, vintage finish, the 'Annie Sloan' method, simple 1 & 2 colour distressed finishes, dry brushing and colour washing.
You will experiment with the colours within one of Annie Sloan's colour palettes as well as learning how to apply gloss and matt lacquer plus all coloured waxes to give your painted pieces a unique look. You will take home your samples & recipe's for future reference.
After you've got to grips with brush & paint you'll actually paint a small piece you've bought from home using one of the methods you've just learnt, finish it with wax and take it home completed. You will have access to all 44 Annie Sloan colours for your mini project.
For your mini project please bring along a piece to paint (1 piece of furniture which must be small enough to carry under one arm - *see below for ideas) and bring your piece to life with the Annie Sloan method of chalk painting.
*Ideal pieces to bring are a small lamp base, picture frame/mirror, small chair, small shelf, candle sticks, small box/trunk etc. As a guide your item should easily fit into the front seat of your car and be something you can easily carry yourself. Coffee tables, side tables, shelving units or cabinets etc are not suitable for this workshop. This is not a colour mixing, decoupage or stencilling workshop - these are advertised seperately.
You'll also take home reference notes, an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colour chart, a mixing stick, an Annie Sloan Paint Brush and receive 10% off all Annie Sloan products purchased on the day.
All equipment supplied. Wear something comfortable that you don't mind getting, well, painted!
