Next Steps – Painting and Distressing Techniques Workshop

29th June 2017 Furniture, Workshops 0 Comments

We had a great ‘Next Steps – Painting and Distressing Techniques Workshop’ last week.  Attendees certainly let their creativity flow! Well, I did ask them to use as many contrasting colours as possible 🙂

The aim of this workshops was a natural follow-on for those whom had been on my beginners workshops and/or who just wanted to take their painted furniture and accessories to another level.

Everyone learnt how to create the ‘chippy look’ and many other techniques, such as paint layering, two (or three) colour distressing, wet distressing, wet brushing and waxing, along with dry brushing techniques.  To finish we all had a go using crackle glaze which is always great fun.

Don’t just take my word for it..

Our next course will be around the beginning of October, so please let me know via email office@janekellydesigns.com, if you are interested in attending so I can keep you up-to-date.
