Class description: Join us for experimenting Lime Paint application techniques. 
Lime Paint has been around for thousands of years and is a truly wonderful traditional material that ages beautifully. Color Atelier Lime Paint is a brush applied coating that dries to a matte finish, with subtle movement and natural color variation. On smooth flat surfaces it can be polished to a shine much like a plaster finish. 

In this workshop we will create Matte and Polished Lime Paint samples. We will also explore using Sealer, and Clear Wax over Lime Paint. As well as using Prep Coat as a base coat for a polished Lime Paint application.
You will learn techniques that result in the most timeless looks, with a natural mineral based, very user-friendly coating.

Each workshop attendee will complete a minimum of four 16”x20” sample boards. Finished projects will be wrapped and packed for travel.

Tools: One 4 inch flat tip brush, one stainless steel application trowel, and one stainless steel burnishing trowel are required for this class. Exclusive class discounts will be offered on tools.

Products Used: Color Atelier Lime Paint, Prep Coat, Sealer, and Clear Wax will be used. Boards, painters tape, sand paper, rags will be provided.
