I am so happy to announce that Mia Bella Designs will be hosting painting workshops twice a month. I am doing one on a weekday so moms with kids in school/MDO can come and one for working people on the weekend. I will also be hosing one just for VENDORS.
My workshops are all inclusive, they include detailed instruction, hands on learning. You bring something small to paint and finish it during the instruction period. I will also be providing lunch and plenty of drinks.

Learn how to:
1. Clean the piece to get all the old oils and gunk off.
2. paint using several different types of paint including latex, chalk (CeCe Caldwell)  homemade chalk paint, and enamel.
3. how to distress using a orbital sander and a sanding block
4. how to glaze using oil based glaze and Ralph Lauren Glazes
5. how to add a clear coat

I will also go over my favorite paints, paint brushes and other secrets that will save you time and money!

The vendor class is for vendors only and you MUST own a business in the furniture field or antique filed!

This teaches all the items listed above in the regular class and.....

1. painting furniture for re-sale
2. pricing your items to sell
3. color choices that are hot and sell the best
4. best places to buy used furniture
