Modern Furniture Painting with Fusion Mineral Pain

Modern Furniture Painting with Fusion Mineral Pain


Come and find out about Modern furniture painting techniques using the wonderful Fusion Mineral Paint with me at Chirpy! 

You can bring along a small piece of unpainted furniture (a stool, chair or small table is ideal) or I will provide you with a project to work on, which you can take away with you to keep afterwards. 

We'll explore the step-by-step process of prepping and painting with Fusion to achieve a smooth brush-stroke free finish and you'll leave armed with the knowledge of how achieve a professional, long-lasting result when upcycling your own furniture. 

We'll then look at contemporary designs you can use to enhance your furniture choosing from creating colour blocking/geometric designs using masking tape and patterns using stencils, decoupage or enhancing paint colours with glazing/wax, depending on your own personal project. 

Finally we'll go through the different finishes together and you can experiment with them to complete your project or choose to create sample sticks as a reference for future projects.  

This workshop will cover:

* Useful contacts and information for sourcing furniture
* Preparation of a piece 
* Painting techniques for a smooth finish
* Creating modern designs
* Finishes to enhance your project
* Advice and support for your future projects including colour selection and prep guidance

* You will have access to this ongoing via the Facebook group afterwards too! 

No experience is necessary and all abilities are welcome. Wearing clothes suitable for painting is a good idea but an apron will be provided. All other materials will be supplied.

Refreshments will be available during the workshop and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get advice for your projects while you are painting too. 

We'll also give you getting started painting kit, furniture painting guide, and tip and colour cards to take home with you.  You can buy products from the Fusion Mineral Paint range paint at a discount on the day. 

(If you require any specific colours for your piece or to purchase please let us know in advance so we can make sure to have it available for you)

This workshop is for ages 16 and over.
