Chalk Paint® 101 Workshop
Taught by Kelley and Betsy, the owners of Simply Shabby, LLC, the exclusive stockists of Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in York County.
The following workshop covers the basics of the Annie Sloan Method. This is a beginner workshop that should take three hours, and includes the following four techniques:
• Annie’s signature two-color distressed finish
• A smooth or modern finish
• A darkened, more rustic finish
• An elegant soft wash over gilded molding
This workshop will showcase how Chalk Paint® can be used in a number of different ways -just as Annie intended; thick, thin, smooth, textured, stippled, and overlaid and rubbed through.
We will also teach you all the ins and outs of Soft Wax- the difference between Clear and Dark Soft Wax, how to easily and properly apply it to protect your pieces and why it is so user-friendly.
Additionally, each student will get hands-on experience with all of Annie’s artisan brushes: the round and flat paint brushes as well as our favorite, Annie’s wax brushes.
Each students will leave with all of the knowledge and skills to create beautiful hand crafted pieces of art.
