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!

As these tips and tricks will reveal, the magic is
in building a community and getting the world to ask you
about your latest project. You need to keep their attention with pages that are easy on the eyes.

If that happens then you will lose that person because the effect is pretty bad.

I comment when I especially enjoy a post on a site or I have something to add to the discussion. Usually it is
caused by the passion displayed in the post I browsed.
And on this article "My First Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Class".
I was excited enough to post a comment ;-) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay.
Could it be just me or do some of these responses
come across as if they are left by brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are writing at other online social
sites, I would like to follow you. Could you list the complete urls of all your
public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head
before writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!
