Basics Workshop june11 2013

In this casual hands-on introductory workshop you will not only have FUN! But you will learn the “basics” of using Chalk Paint® Decorative Paints and Waxes by Annie Sloan. This paint is not one dimensional and there is so much functionality in it- let us show you how to take advantage of that and create pieces that will be drop dead gorgeous!

All supplies will be provided. First you pick out a sample pot of Chalk Paint® of your favorite color that you will use when learning how to wet distress. But from the very beginning, you will learn about making a glaze/stain using Annie’s soft, dark wax. Then you will be painting a one and two-color technique- showing you how to add a little dry brushing for effect and creating a wash. A very important finishing step in regards to distressing – sharing our tips & tricks and making sure you can create a professional effect. You will create a wash and learn the fundamentals of how to apply it properly. Lastly- we will focus in on using the wax! Hands on training on how to age and tone your finishes with clear and dark waxes and the proper application process. (applying the wax is often the biggest issue Chalk Paint® users have- what is learned in this workshop will eliminate that from happening to you!) And hands on experimenting with “polishing” the Chalk Paint® using sand paper.

You will leave the workshop with your own sample boards, a sample pot of Chalk Paint® in the color of your choice, …and most importantly – you will leave with the confidence and skills to tackle your own projects at home.

CLASS SIZE: We like to be able to help you one on one- so we have a class maximum of 6 people- with a minimum of 3- exceptions may be made based on my schedule- however, this would not set a precedent.

DURATION: This workshop runs around 3 hours- but has gone longer based on the amount of questions asked- which is very positive. Please try to get here 15 minutes prior to class starting. * This is a casual painting party so bring a light snack or even your dinner and your favorite beverage to enjoy.

LOCATION!!!: The Purple Painted Lady, 77 West Main Street, Macedon NY 14502

Old White dresser Before and after

I like to joke and say- “help me paint a piece of MY furniture!”

Yes, this is my savvy way of getting free labor. LOL! Well, part if that is a little true, BUT I do guarantee, 100% that you will walk away from our time together feeling very confident and knowledgeable to go home and conquer your own projects!

In this class I share information about the Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and show you on how I approach a painting project.

This workshop begins with cleaning the piece- to how I paint furniture to get the best results.

This is a casual hands-on introductory 2 hour demo – where you participate!

All who attend will receive a $2.00 discount off of any Chalk Paint® quarts the day of the workshop!

FREE Wax Clinics at The Purple Painted Lady in Macedon

Hi all!

I know how much you love using the paint that we sell- but I often hear that waxing is not the easiest thing to do for you.

How much do you apply?
How should you apply it?
When do you wipe it off?
How much do you remove?
And….what about Dark Wax?

Well, we will be offering TWO FREE Clinics on How TO USE SOFT WAX on Thursday, August 15th. One event is from noon till 1pm (may go longer) and the other is later that night from 6 to 7pm. The clinics are FREE, but please register through our Facebook Event page HERE.

You must be registered to attend since it will help us plan and accommodate for all who would like to attend!

Hope to see you there!
