'Tis the season for a giveaway and I am so excited to be able to offer a gift (valued at $150.00) to one of my followers! The gift is the online FARRAGOZ Furniture Painting Course that I myself have been enrolled in.
In this class, you will be given all the information needed for you to complete five (5) projects at
your leisure (the class runs 12 months) and you will be assigned an instructor that will personally guide you through each project. You will learn the art of patina, and how to create beautiful pieces like those of craftsmen from previous centuries, using age old recipes and techniques. No expensive branded products are used. In fact, you will learn to make all of your paints, oil stains and decorative moldings on a shoestring budget using only materials from your grocer, hardware and art supply store!
A clock face.
A display case.
A Byzantine icon of the Archangel Michael.
And a decorative plaque with angels. (This is the next project I will be making.)
The first project that I completed was a Byzantine icon of the Archangel Michael.
After that, I was able to apply the techniques and paint recipes I learned, to experiment and make my own version of Christ as a Child.
My second project was the clock face, which I decided to make into the table you see below.
I was offered this course in exchange for reviewing and sharing blog posts of my progress along the way, and I have found myself developing a real passion for it. It is highly addictive to build your skill set with each new project that you complete, to the point where you begin to feel like a true artisan! Once you learn the techniques of how to achieve the look of authentically aged patina, your ability to reapply them becomes virtually unlimited.
