Cottage Paint classes at The Camellia, Thunder Bay.

At long last, we had our first Cottage Paint class yesterday. There are lots of techniques to learn, and it's much better to practice in a class first, and then to graduate to painting your piece. Here are some of the practice boards from the class.

 These are my first 2 projects, Purple Haze bottom coat on antique dresser, Asphalt grey as topcoat. Technique used 2 colour distressing, with a wax finish coat. Dining Room set was painted with Driftwood, technique used 1 colour distressing, finish coat is a zero-gloss acrylic varnish. To see full colour selection, go to
