My First Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Class

Last week I finally got the privilege of taking an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint class.    The class was hosted at my nearest stockist store Luxury for Less in Ponte Vedra. They supplied us with everything we needed to practice a few techniques.  We even got the cutest aprons to take home!






Oh, the choices!


Our wonderful instructor, Wendy, is on the left.  And our host, Elaine, is on the right.
My pictures really don't show the details very well.  But here are the three techniques we covered.


This one is stippling using three colors.  I sealed with clear and dark wax.
This is a two color technique.  I tried half with clear wax only and half with clear and dark wax.
This one is a dry brush technique.

Again, sorry these pictures really don't show the techniques very well.  One day I'll actually get a decent camera.  These are just taken with my phone.

I did get to play around with some paint on the top part of a huge mirror.  This is what I came up with:

I did a base coat of Graphite and then stippled with Barcelona Orange and Old White.  I did the stippling  seperately instead of putting both colors on each side of the brush.  Mainly because I tried the orange first and then decided it needed to be toned down.
Oh, I forgot to mention we had a delicious catered lunch as well!  I forgot to take pictures until after we had already dived in.  You get the idea though. :)



And last but not least.  Here are a few of my classmates.  See the cute aprons!
Formulating a plan. :)
One more look at our awesome instructor, Wendy!


I can't wait for the advanced class coming up soon!  Stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by.  Be blessed!

I hаve beеn brοwsing onlinе more than 4 hours today,
yet I never found anу іnteгeѕting artiсle
like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Definitely imagine that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to
be on the internet the easiest factor to take into account of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as other folks think about worries that they plainly do not recognise about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well
as defined out the entire thing with no need side effect ,
people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get
more. Thank you
