THE ESSENTIALS ATELIER, PART 1

This 3-hour atelier is a comprehensive introduction to Chalk Paint® and the Annie Sloan Method, covering the following layering techniques, and more.

• Annie Sloan’s signature two-color distressed finish

• A colour wash, in which multiples colours are washed & blended together

• A dry brush technique, which is ideal for highlighting ornate detailing & hardware, both wood & metal

This workshop showcases how Chalk Paint® can be used in a number of different ways, just as Annie Sloan intended, including liberally for one coat coverage, smoothly for a more modern or contemporary look, and thickly and textured for a more rustic look.  All pieces will be finished with Soft Wax for protection, durability, and a beautiful mellow look.

There is a limit of 6 per atelier and Cost is 90 per student.
