“Dark Beauty Box” – Altered wooden box

Do you think about making a lovely handmade gift for loved ones or a magical box for your special treasures? Would you like to get more ideas on how to use Finnabair Matte Waxes and Metallic Flakes and how to create lovely, grungy, yet elegant textures on your project? I’m here to help!

The “Dark Beauty Box” is rich in techniques and creative ideas, which you can easily transfer to many other surfaces and projects.

Multiple “signature” Finnabair style concepts are included in it: layering, building textures and interesting visual effects using inspiring art mediums, paints, and dimensional elements. Metallic Flakes, Art Alchemy Matte Waxes and Liquid Acrylic Paints, elements made in Finnabair moulds and metal embellishments – all these, working together will help us create this rich, regal, magical look and what started as a humble, plain box is quickly turned into a “Dark Beauty” Treasure!

There is so much to look at: extraordinary, rich, shiny textures paired beautifully with garden elements to create a magical, almost fairy-tale atmosphere.

If you’d like to get more confident with dimensional, clustered compositions and creating unique, shiny effects on your projects, this is the right place to start!


“Pretty in Patina” – Distressed “Wallpaper” Technique
In this hands-on half day class, instructor/furniture artist CeCe (from CeCe ReStyled) will demonstrate and guide you step-by-step through the various products and techniques used to create a finish reminiscent of an aged and distressed wall treatment.  The techniques you will learn can be used with a variety of products and repeated for many types of DIY projects, making them an invaluable resource in your artistic toolbox as it yields endless results depending on the mediums and colors used. The products chosen for this class will provide a distressed finish that is perfectly patina’d with a hint of nostalgia using products from Redesign with Prima and Prima Marketing, inc..  The final finish you will create consists of multiple layers and is packed with fun to use Prima products.  You will enjoy using, learning, and creating with the various products and mediums used, but the invaluable knowledge of how to use them in a manner that will allow you to create in new ways is a skill you will want to join us in Temecula to acquire!
