Introduction to Transfers, Decoupage, and Gilding Waxes
$34

**I recommend taking my Introduction to Chalk Painting class before taking this class. We will not be covering paint topics in this class.  

In this beginners class, you’ll learn just enough about transfers, decoupage, and gilding waxes to confidently apply them yourself at home.   

You’ll love playing with all the fun products on a sample board that you can take home. (It is not a fancy take-home project.)

All supplies included; you don’t need to bring anything. 

These photo are examples of what you can create using moulds. You will not be creating these projects in class.

In this beginners class you’ll learn how to use moulds, resin, and paper clay to create beautiful embellishments. You’ll apply them to a project board, paint them, and use gilding waxes to bring out the details.

About your Instructor

Hi! I’m Brooke Sobol. I’ve been a professional furniture artist and instructor for going on six years. I started on my patio and built up to owning my own store. I’m a former Brand Ambassador for Redesign with Prima and a frequent guest instructor on the Dixie Belle and other company Facebook pages.  

I currently collaborate with Grit & Grace Marketplace, where I sell some of my furniture and carry a full range of furniture art products. I now also teach classes out of a separate location right down the street from the store. 

I’m at Grit & Grace Marketplace (2970 E. 12th Ave. Emmett, ID) every Wednesday from 2:00-6:00 to answer questions and offer advice on your projects.
