Layers of Patina Advanced Technique Workshop at Camas Antiques

I have had such a blast lately playing around with the Artisan Enhancements products!
Last month I had the opportunity to go to a special training for Chalk Paint® stockists where I gained loads of information about the whole Artisan line. 
A few of the products such as Crackle Tex and Pearl Plaster, I had already been using on some of my furniture makeovers, but the others were fairly new to me and the ideas I gathered at the training really broadened my painting horizons!    
 These eco-friendly, low VOC artistic mediums were designed to work in harmony with Chalk Paint® and the finishes people are creating with them are incredibly inspiring!
I could hardly wait to share this wonderful line of products, which we now carry at Camas Antiques with my painting friends!  I have put together a fun advanced technique workshop to introduce the following products and some ideas for using them: 
Artisan Enhancements Fine Stone
Artisan Enhancements Crackle Tex
Artisan Enhancements Scumble
Artisan Enhancements Clear Topcoat
Artisan Enhancements Transfer Gel
In this workshop we will create a beautiful work of art on a 16x20 stretched canvas, all the while learning several unique products and techniques that while fantastic on their own, are just stunning when applied in layers.  The cost is $90 and includes all materials as well as light refreshments. This workshop is designed for those who have previously taken the Introduction to Chalk Paint® workshop and are ready to take their paint finishes to a new level!

  Layers of Patina Advanced Technique Workshop Dates:
Monday, August 18th 7pm-10pm
Monday, September 22nd 7pm-10pm
Preregistration is required as seating is limited.  You can either register by email and I will send you a Paypal invoice, or you stop by Camas Antiques and register in the store!
If neither of these dates work for you but you would love to attend this workshop, would you do me a favor and let me know! I would also love to hear what techniques you are interested in learning for future workshops!
If you don't live in my area but are interested in the Artisan Enhancements products, please visit their website to find a retailer near you!
Best Wishes and Happy Painting!
