This two and a half hour workshop is an introduction to working with special effects metallic paint; learn how to make any paintable surface look like aged metal, the techniques involved and the surfaces it can be applied to.

Jane Michael, an artist with a Certificate IV in training and Assessment, will show you how to apply special effects paint and use different methods to create various patinas and oxidisation effects. You will then produce your own outdoor artwork to take home. If you have a piece of your own that you would like to work on you are welcome to bring it - but it's best to check with us first to make sure it's appropriate.

All materials and equipment are supplied. Children over the age of 14 can attend. We recommend wearing older clothes on the day, as it can be a messy process!
