What is FARRAGOZ?

FARRAGOZ offers 2 online courses in the art of patina that will teach you how to make your own inexpensive milk paints, oil paints, tempera, primer, gesso and much more. We will inspire and guide you with step-by-step instructions and videos on how to make, apply and distress these to create exquisite patina on wood like a master artisan. No expensive branded products are used in these courses.

 

 

Using a farrago of materials and ancient recipes, along with a little modern technology, you will produce paints from scratch, the way master craftsmen have done through ages, before the onslaught of modern commercial paints that all scream: plastic and chemicals! 

We will teach you how to apply these homemade paints and finally how to speed up the ageing process for them to look so authentic, that even an expert will find it very difficult to tell the difference. The materials used in these trusted old recipes are eco-friendly, making them safe to work with and tools easy to clean. All safe enough to be produced and cleaned in your kitchen.


In each of these courses, you will discover how to design, re-use, re-cycle, re-purpose and re-construct to create individual works of art and in a twelve month period, re-make yourself as an artisan.
