Nancy and I are happy to be new retail partners of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! We are now stocking all 29 colors of Chalk Paint and waxes at Loot!
I know I did not blog at all last week, but we have been so busy with everything going on at Loot! We got back from a two-day, train-the-trainer, Chalk Paint workshop last Friday night. Then, we had to have all the paint unloaded and displayed at Loot by Saturday.
Here is Nancy, armed with her paint brush, at the intensive Chalk Paint workshop we attended last week. The workshop was held at 3 Oaks Studio in Clovis, CA. Vicki, who is the California Distributor of Chalk Paint, taught us so many amazing techniques in her lovely studio.
Vicki taught us new ways to use Chalk Paint and we are looking forward to sharing what we learned at our workshops at Loot. Even though we have been using Chalk Paint for several months, we still learned new, impressive techniques and hints for using the paint and waxes to achieve so many different looks.
Vicki and her husband host weddings on their amazing property during the spring and summer. It looks like a dream location for a wedding, doesn't it?
One of the new techniques Vicki showed us was how to use the new Annie Sloan Craqueleur. This is a sample I painted at the workshop with crackled Old White, topped with dark wax. The Craqueleur was so easy to use and created impressive results. We are looking forward to stocking some Craqueleur at Loot in the near future.
Nancy and I are excited to be teaching our first Chalk Paint workshop at Loot tomorrow morning!
