Come and learn my own personal furniture painting techniques using the wonderful Fusion Mineral Paint at Chirpy! I provide everyone with a wooden project box to customise and keep though you can bring along a small piece of unpainted wooden furniture if you prefer.
I'll show you how to get a flawless, smooth finish and also how to create perfect masking tape designs!
We'll explore the step-by-step process of prepping and painting with Fusion and you'll leave armed with the knowledge of how achieve a professional, long-lasting result when upcycling your own furniture.
We'll then work on creating a contemporary design to enhance your piece such as colour blocking or geometric designs using masking tape and I'll show you the techniques I use to get great results.
