This in-depth workshop expands on our Techniques 1 course with more painting techniques and elements of style. You’ll complete two boards designed to help you build confidence while creating a variety of popular Chalk Paint® looks — everything you need to become an accomplished decorative painter.
You’ll start with our Modern board which focuses on a modern style and palette but can be used in a classical way too. We’ll build on the flat and ultra-smooth finishes from Techniques 1 by learning how to create an ombre effect and paint a sharp line. You’ll add designs with reusable stencils, transferred images, easy detailed brushwork, and printing. We’ll also cover how to wax new wood and make a colored wax. We’ll then move on to our Classical board with a classic style and palette that can also be used in a more modern way. You’ll learn how to heat crackle the paint, easy ways for gilding, and how to use a frottage technique. We’ll cover more easy detailed brushwork, our foolproof craqueleur varnish, wet color blending, and colored wax effects. We’ll top this off with a beautiful rough luxe finish guaranteed to stir your imagination.
Suitable for the painter who has completed our Techniques 1 workshop or the more experienced painter who would like to expand their understanding of all that Chalk Paint® can offer.
All supplies are provided; there will be a brief break with light refreshments.
