Modern Furniture Painting with Fusion Mineral Paint - Saturday 25th May
Come and find out about Modern furniture painting techniques using the wonderful Fusion Mineral Paint with me at Chirpy!
You can bring along a small piece of unpainted furniture (a stool, chair or small table is ideal) or I will provide you with a project to work on, which you can take away with you to keep afterwards.
We'll explore the step-by-step process of prepping and painting with Fusion to achieve a smooth brush-stroke free finish and you'll leave armed with the knowledge of how achieve a professional, long-lasting result when upcycling your own furniture.
We'll then look at contemporary designs you can use to enhance your furniture choosing from creating colour blocking/geometric designs using masking tape and patterns using stencils, decoupage or enhancing paint colours with glazing/wax, depending on your own personal project.
Finally we'll go through the different finishes together and you can experiment with them to complete your project or choose to create sample sticks as a reference for future projects.
This workshop will cover:
Useful contacts and information for sourcing furniture
Preparation of a piece
Painting techniques for a smooth finish
Creating modern designs
Finishes to enhance your project
Advice and support for your future projects including colour selection and prep guidance
You will have access to this ongoing via the Facebook group afterwards too!
