We are so sad to have to halt our workshops again but as soon as we are permitted we will be back in the game! Meanwhile, do keep an eye out on our social media for all the fun lives and demos we have in store for you,
This workshop is specially designed by Annie to introduce her paint and products to you so that you can feel happy and confident to tackle your painting project at home. We explore the many ways in which the paint can be put to use, creating some really exciting finishes as we go. We provide all that you need so you just come in clothes for painting.
On this workshop you practice on wooden boards to achieve the following effects:
Explore the many ways to manipulate the paint for effects from a simple colour wash to Annie’s signature two colour distress finish. Although this is widely used to create a “shabby chic” look with the right knowledge, it can also be used really successfully to create a sharp contemporary, or subtle build-up of layered colours finish.
Create a new colour by learning how to mix them together.
Application of the finishing coats of either lacquer or clear wax to give your work the protection it requires.
How to control the waxing procedure so you feel secure about the application of dark and coloured waxes for a perfect finish.
There is so much more I talk about as well! There are lots of ideas for using Annie’s paint on your projects in ways other than painting. I can only introduce these to you here as the time goes by so very fast.
The idea is that you leave the workshop with a good understanding of what you can create with the paint and confidence to tackle your next project in just the way you want to.
