I am a certified Chalk Paint® Stockist, correctly trained by Annie Sloan and her team in all her painting techniques, which I offer to you in workshops.  While there is good information out there on the internet offered by bloggers and others who are not trained in the use of
Chalk Paint® and Soft Wax®, there is also a lot of misinformation.  We recommend that you try to attend at least a basic class, to learn how to correctly use the paint and waxes, and ask any questions you may have.


Basic Furniture Painting and Waxing 101, using Chalk Paint® decorative
paint and Soft Wax® by Annie Sloan.

Sunday September 23rd - 1pm till 5pm at Echoes of Opal Studio on Main
Street in  Ventura.  The address is 740 East Main Street, Ste.A and
access to the Studio and parking is from the alley in the rear.

Do you have a piece of furniture that you would love to revamp into
something fabulous you can actually use?  Then come and take this
class and find out just how easy it is to transform a piece with no
sanding and no priming needed!  Bring a small piece that you can carry
by yourself (yes, by yourself!)  such as a chair, bedside cabinet,
small table.  Just make sure that it is clean and ready to paint.
Chalk Paint® doesn't like Pledge!
We provide all class materials. 
$100 per person
If your piece isn't completely painted and waxed by the time the class
is over, you will need to purchase a quart of paint and/or a tin of
wax to take home with you so you can finish your project at home.  You
will be able to complete many projects with just one quart of paint,
and a tin of wax. I will also have 4oz test pot sizes of paint
available to you, so you can experiement with different colors, and
maybe pick out details in different color.  That's lots of fun!

I will have Chalk Paint®, Soft Wax® and Annie's wonderful brushes for

yet, so please bring cash or a check with your DL number, address and
phone no.

Space is limited to a maximum of 12 and the workshop is filling up
fast, so don't wait too long or you will have to wait for the next
workshop.  There is plenty of space for you all to  spread out at the
Studio, and I will give you initial instruction and then be walking
amongst you answering questions, and demonstrating techniques.

These Workshops are a lot fun!  Light refreshments will be provided.
We look forward to meeting you and getting you started on painting
with Chalk Paint®.
