We Love Workshops: Chalk Paint®, Milk Paint & Private Parties too.

Yes, we love our workshops around here!  With Easter and then our "Destination Downton" trip on the calendar, our next sessions will be later in April.  To be the first to hear about new workshops when they are posted, sign up for email notifications at: http://www.appleboxboutique.com/workshop-notifications.html

We had great fun in last week's Got Milk Paint? workshop and we're already looking forward to the next one.  Here are some pics!

So many colours to choose from... and to create other colours with!

A little water, a little milk paint powder, and a little stirring -- it's fun and quick to mix up! 


Decisions, decisions!  Adding Bonding Agent to the mixture provides serious adhesion.  Or leave it out for chic chippyness.


Bonding Agent looks creamy in the bottle, but doesn't affect the richness of the colours.


The consistency is up to you. Add more water to make a base stain for lighter woods when you'd like to distress out to a deeper tone, or use it for pickling (or as a wash) to enhance the wood grain and create interest.


Crackling can also be achieved by painting with a slightly thicker consistency of Milk Paint and quickly drying it with a hair dryer, creating small natural cracks. It is beneficial to use the Crackle Medium for more obvious cracks. 


Lots of samples are created in-class so you can take the knowledge home with you!


Don't miss our next workshop, or if you would like a private Paint Party, we can book dates outside of our regular sessions.

Many thanks to Cinnamon Photography for the fabulous workshop photos!
