sistershands-faux work, training and play

Sisterhands annual faux play was held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and was packed with work, education and fun.

Elaine owner of Creative Lane Finishes was the host of this years fauxplay and also provided a project  we could all work on together. Elaine’s client wanted something southwestern, so with collaboration with the sisters and client we decided to use Manda Mudd. It is  a 3 layer application, and we choose  3 different colors to flow with other rooms decor. We all become certified contractors in Nashville during one of our fauxplay’s.

This was our work for the week……..

Our education for the week…….

Wanting to teach homeowners (diy’ers) that want to know how to refinish their cabinets/furniture, gild, glaze their walls has been something I have wanted to do for sometime now. Just wasn’t ever really sure of when, how and with what products. My professional business Artistry in Faux requires  professional training and most products are not available to the  public. I do plan on continuing to work with homeowners and designers who need/want my services.

Are you a do it your selfer….then look no farther….this is something you will not want to miss.

The when, how and with what has been answered for me by a great product line through Caromal Colours.

The  finishes, whether it be your cabinets,  glazing, gilding, or a plaster wall finish it is perfect for women of all skill levels, from the experienced crafter do-it-her-selfer to the woman who may not (think) she knows the difference between a chip brush or a purdy brush….believe me after 1 workshop  you will love learning what you can do with Caromal Colours.

This is what I am loving about the  caromal-colours_1239800320327 is that it is user friendly, green,caromal-colours_1239631960445a comes with every thing you need in a kit for your project caromal-colours_1239801892329a, including brushes, gloves, stir stick and of course product.

I am in the process of putting together several classes for students that have been waiting for me to return home. They are so excited that they can do their own kitchen cabinets dsc_0039, walls and learn how  to plaster pict0093a glaze and gild dsc_4357-copy.
