The paint is cracked, the varnish is cracked and the piece is loaded with character. This hands-on technique workshop will introduce you to a myriad of crackle techniques using Chalk Paint, crackle mediums and craquelure varnish and mineral powders. Workshop fee includes all class supplies, a step-by-step class syllabus, tip cards and a catered lunch.
