Have you ever wanted to have professional looking faux-painted walls but just couldn’t afford to have it done? It’s not as hard to do as you think. Learn how to do it yourself and save money when the San Juan College Community Learning Center offers the class titled Fabulous Faux, Saturday, August 4, in room 9033.
Linda Coffman will teach students all they need to know to get started in the one-day class. Taught in two parts, the morning session will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon, and will cover the basic looks including faux metallic and Tuscan. Part two will run from 1 to 3:30 p.m. and combines Coffman’s approach with other popular looks such as suede, rustic and modern.
Following the class, students will know how to create perfect ceilings and corners, learn how to make glaze and how to rescue a wall. End your wall with a glaze or an antique wash. With a twist of the writs and tricks of the trade, even beginners will amaze their neighbors!
Coffman has been in the wallpapering and faux-painting business for more than 18 years. Her work is featured in businesses, hotels, restaurants, bed and breakfasts and fine homes throughout the Minnesota area and now in Arizona. Hundreds are now using her dual-roller techniques to create their own professional looking faux-painted walls.
Cost for part one is $29 for the class and $29 for materials. Cost for part two is also $29 for the class. Register for both sessions and pay $49 for the classes, and $58 for materials.
