Come and enjoy a full day learning how to upcycle your furniture like a pro!
I will teach you everything you need to know from how to prepare your pieces for painting, including some basic restoration and repair tips, before taking you through a range of paint techniques including layering, blending, colour washing and dry brushing. I'll then teach you how distress and embellish your pieces and use different coloured waxes to complete the look.
You will learn how to do all these things...
* basic repairs and restoration
* preparing your piece for painting
* create different styles using a variety of paint techniques
* use Frenchic Frensheen to guild and highlight detail
* wet/dry distressing
* create depth, texture and age using different wax finishes

Materials Included: Access to my collection of Frenchic Furniture Paints, Crackle Glaze, Finishing Coat, Waxes and Stencils, use of my Frenchic brushes, a light lunch and as much tea and cake as you can manage!
