In this workshop we will cover the basic types of decorative painting- glazing, faux finishing, and stenciling techniques. We will work on surface preparation, understanding of base color and glaze color combinations and techniques for achieving multiple types of finishes including wood graining, marbling, and other surface decoration. We will work together to create painted samples and then to develop a project such as a painted box, chair or picture frame etc. Students may also wish to use these techniques in a painting on canvas or board. The goal may also be to develop a larger decorative project at home.
