About the event


Do you love the look of old patina on a fancy frame? Learn how to achieve the look in this FUN class where we will take tired looking fancy frames and make them FABULOUS with a chippy, shabby vintage style finish. You can either BRING YOUR OWN FRAME (30" or smaller) and refinish it ($49 if you bring your own frame) OR we will supply the frame ($87 if we supply the frame, which you get to take home). No experience is necessary! We will walk you through the entire process of prepping, painting, sealing and specialty finish such as crackle, patina, glaze, and dark waxing, so you can learn these finish techniques and apply them to other projects. Plus, students can use a 15% off coupon for any shop purchases made that night (excluding paint and painting supplies)

PLEASE NOTE - there are 2 ticket types, at 2 price points, one if you are bringing your own frame, one if you need one provided. Please select the appropriate ticked whether you want to finish your own frame, or have one provided.

IF YOU ARE BRINGING YOUR OWN FRAME.....please select a frame that can be finished during the class, one that is 30" on any side, or smaller, and is at least 12" on any side. Select a frame that has ornate detail or carvings on it. Plain frames can be used but the fancy finish will not be as remarkable as a frame with carved or ornate detailing to it.

This small sized class will have plenty of individual attention by the instructor, so sign up quick, as seating is VERY limited.

This class will cover the following:

* Preparing your frame for refinishing

* Prime / pre paint sealing

* Using different paints

* Distressing and crackle techniques

* Finishing touches - using waxes, glazes and 'age dust'

Class length: approx 3 hrs

Are you ready? Register now and secure your seat because space is highly limited. Why not grab a friend or 2 and do it together? Minimum age for this class is 12 years of age.

In case of inclement weather, the class will be rescheduled.
