DIY Chalk & Clay INTRO Painting Class with Sue 9/30 9-12pm

September 30 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hey Kids, Get your paint brushes ready cause its time to get your chalk paint on! Yep, we are showing you how you can master our new paint line Debi’s Design Diary Chalk and Clay DIY paint with a new New Chalk & Clay Painting Class at Tanglewood Works.

Our goal at Tanglewood Works is not only to showcase upcycled furniture, but to help members of our DC, Maryland and Virginia communities Do-It-Yourself at an affordable price. For 65.00 we are helping you get started on your DIY painting journey.

YOu’ll learn how to prepare your furniture for chalk/clay painting, how to use your brush, how to get different textures and most importantly, how to seal your piece for years of use. We have created this class to help those of you who have already made purchases of our new paint and those of you thinking about taking the leap into upcycling and furniture painting.

Have you always wanted to try chalk-type painting but you don’t even know how or where to begin? Online tutorials are a good start but leave a lot of questions unanswered. Senior Dumpster Diva to the rescue! In this INTRO class, Sue uses Debi’s design diary Paints.

Sue will cover choosing and mixing paint, brush technique, basic distressing techniques and how to choose a sealant for your finished piece. Each graduate will leave with the knowledge and courage to start painting everything in their house. They will also be ready for DIY Renegade Chalk Paint Advanced Course where Sue will showcase blending colors and patinas, multiple distressing and chipping techniques, and comprehensive wax techniques.

Sue will provide:

Chalk Paint Brushes

A variety of paint colors for you to choose from

Inspiration and fun!
