Introductions Are In Order

We are pleased to introduce Florence, the newest addition to CHALK PAINT™ by Annie Sloan!  A beautiful malachite-inspired color, Florence is vibrance and sophistication all in one.  And you don't have to wait long to add it to your collection.  It will be on our shelves tomorrow--Friday, June 15th!

If you've already tried your hand at CHALK PAINT ™  and feel like you're ready to learn something new, we have the workshop for you!

We'll be covering four advanced techniques.  First, you'll learn how to create a stunning shabby chic effect by layering different stencil designs.

Next comes silver or gold gilding wax.  Learn how to apply it to your stenciled piece to create a soft, glamorous shimmer.

For those who enjoy a more antiqued look, we look forward to introducing you to CRAQUELEUR™ by Annie Sloan!  It is a two part water-based crackling medium that produces a gorgeous aged effect on painted surfaces. Come learn how to combine it with CHALK PAINT™ to create the perfect timeworn piece for your home!

Finally, we'll be creating texture with CHALK PAINT™ by thickening it to an impasto form. Impasto refers to the paint itself, which becomes very thick, and the layering technique used with it.  This method adds richness and depth to even the most plain, flat surface.

The workshop will be held on Wednesday, July 11 from 9am to 1pm.  We would love to see you there!

  1. Just googled where to buy in Nashville and hate I missed this workshop. Are you having another any time soon? I might have to come and visit tomorrow :)
