Basic Paint Workshop
This course offers you the opportunity to come and try our Autentico Vintage paint, whether it is your first time using it or if you are looking to gain a little confidence this Basic workshop is ideal.
We work with small groups of either three or four people at our shop in Hythe.
We ask that you bring with you a small piece of furniture, the smallest of a nest of tables is perfect (no welsh dressers please!) to work on and we will provide you with everything else that you need.
Throughout the time we cover a number of techniques. We will show you how to use Autentico Crackle Graze, how to create a distressed look in a number of different ways as well as a beachy-washed out look using dry brushing.
All of these techniques will be explained to you and then working on a board you can try them all out.
We will explain how best to prepare furniture for painting and when prepped and ready you can make a start painting your piece under our watchful eyes! Along the way we will share our top tips and techniques for creating a great finish.
Once satisfied with a lovely paint job we can then move onto sealing . Autenico produce many different waxes, these provide a layer of protection over the paint. We will show you how best to use them to create yet more different looks to painted furniture.
