Chalk . . . clay . . . mineral or milk – many competing “shabby chic” decorative furniture paints are marketed by various brands like Annie Sloan, American Paint Co., CeCe Caldwell, Miss Mustard Seed, and the Real Milk Paint® Co. They all vary in available color palette, composition, application, ease of storage and somewhat in cost. They each have wonderful (if differing) qualities and are all quite fun to work with, but you should know more about each one before you open your wallet or drag grandma's old sideboard out of the basement!
Want to experiment with several different types and brands before making a potentially expensive commitment to just one paint? Find your perfect match by flirting with at least four major paint brands first! Anastasia has been creating with the major brands currently available, and is willing to show you the beginning ropes during her Flirting with Paints™ survey class.
You’ll get a hands-on experience working with each paint, as well as a rundown on each paint’s qualities, so you can make an informed decision. We’ll even refer you to friendly and reputable vendors who sell these dandy paints and who offer further instruction if you are interested!
Because Confectionique chooses not to sell any paint and is not under contract with any paint manufacturer or corporation, Anastasia will give you her unbiased experience with the pluses and minuses of each paint – we have no vested interest in steering you toward any particular brand or selling you paint! Normally, it could cost someone several hundred dollars in paint and duplicative classes to try even just a few of the major types or brands of paint. Anastasia’s Flirting with Paints™ class is an affordable and impartial introduction to this exciting and creative craft!
The class will be held every market Saturday from 2pm-5pm -- the next class is Saturday December 13 during our upcoming "A Merry Christmas -- in Paris!" market. Due to popular demand, space is very limited, so get your reservation in early! A $20 deposit is required to hold your spot.*
Tuition is $60.00 for this 3-hour class and we only have a few spaces available! All supplies are included and light beverages will be served. Interested? Give us a wink and a nod by messaging us on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org !
