What will I be doing in the Patina PROJECTS Course?
This course consists of 7 modules. In each module, you can make an object like an icon, clock face, mirror frame, etc. In this course, unlike in most other paint finish courses, instead of making a little sample board, you make an object while learning different techniques. Students love the fact that they have something to show for their efforts. This course will give you a good feel for the various paints and how to use them on different pieces. You will do a bit of basic woodwork which can prove to be handy if you need to up-cycle a piece. You will also learn how to make gesso for low-relief ornamentation and how to make ornaments for application to mirrors as well as moulds in which to reproduce ornaments. There is also a section on ageing mirror glass.
Which processes are used to create these decor objects?
With the help of step-by-step videos and instructions we will teach you how to make or prepare the structure of each object, how to apply the different homemade products and finally how to distress them to look authentically old.
