"Rustic Luxe"" Chalk Paint® Technique Class

Product Description

The "rustic luxe" trend continues to be extremely popular in modern and industrial farmhouse design. Combining natural elements such as reclaimed wood with patinated metals is HOT!  

This industrial style started with artists, designers, printmakers and writers moving into lofts & warehouses in New York & London in the mid 1960's.  Salvaged and upcycled functional furniture & ornamentation….crates, signage, rubber flooring, metal lighting, metal or wood letters and signs, and leather are prominent with LOTS of texture, restored wood plank flooring and exposed brick walls.

We will explore these layered decorative finishes including oxidizing reactive metallic paints, mica powders and leafing with patinas, creating layers of crusty metallic finishes, & paint a faux zinc wax resist finish with Chalk Paint®.  Please note that you must be relaxed enough to allow the processes to work naturally, so we may not be able to finish the pieces in the workshop.  You will be instructed on the final surface protection techniques.

You will learn these finishes on masonite sample boards, suitable for framing or tablescapes.
