kind of individual that has always wanted to have fun with faux finishing
then the Broken Color Class is for you!
A completely Glaze Free technique that everyone can learn
I have set up a broken color class to be held at various locations that will take little time and little expense to learn and could be coming to a location near you
4 hour course
where I will teach you everything you need to know about producing a great a broken color faux finish that is both repairable and durable and the beauty of it is it’s all done completely
without the use of glaze!
That’s right completely glaze free! Broken color is a old art technique that dates back hundreds of years that originally was used by fine artists like Monet and Van Gogh known as
Artist Arthur Morehead who has demonstrated this technique at
The Miromar Design Center
as well as a number of other techniques is a highly sought after expert in his field and has been in the painting business professionally for over 30 years
“as a child the neighbors, friends, family couldn’t keep me from my creative drive and nothing was safe from receiving my mark, even after taking away my pens, pencils and crayons, did I discover mud, sticks, and charcoal from the old Weber grill”
“I will show you how to do this versatile unique technique with only a few tools are needed.”
Virtually any color can be used and the choice is yours!
That’s right you choose the colors from your local paint store like Sherwin Williams or Ben Moore which must be of a good quality satin paint, don’t skimp on this.
You will need to bring 3 separate colors all mixed in a “Satin” acrylic paint base which one of the colors will be used as a base paint for your “Sample Boards”. Don’t worry I’ll supply the boards which are made of a thick styrene plastic so you will be able to use them over again.
To keep the costs to a minimum there are two options for this class.
Supply your own choice of paint colors and tools which you may already have.
3 quarts of “satin” acrylic latex paint in your choice of colors
3 (3″) paint brushes, can be the throw away type
one 4″ roller frame with sleeve for base painting your boards
1 roll of 1 1/2 inch “blue” low tack faux tape (orange core)
A few “T-shirt quality” rags
An old hair dryer, for drying your sample boards,
Note pad for taking notes on the steps and colors used for each sample made
You can choose to let us supply everything for an additional fee of $50.00 to cover the costs of the materials.
I would recommend choosing option one so you can work with the colors you want but you will need to bring everything listed in option one and not just the paint because there will only be enough to go around as per option that each person chooses.
The goal here is to have fun and for you to walk away with the knowledge and confidence to complete a small room or accent area in your own home yourself.
This is a Prerequisite to other faux finishes that I have created from this concept which is only the beginning to opening up the creative process which is hidden in all of us and I will be holding these Saturday classes on a regular basis depending on class attendance and my schedule
