China Shelf by Ginger Landon Siegel  $53 – Limited to 15 participants

Spend a day creating a curved top “china” filled decorative shelf.  In advance of the class you will make a choice between the Blue and White, the holiday themed White and Red and the shabby chic Green & Pink “China” to fill shelf, learning how to create the grooved wood backing for the shelf, then you will use a dry brush technique to create a softer finish for the white shelves and learn a technique to create the distressed look of the Shabby Chic shelf.   Your “china” will be prepared in advance with the dimensional paints and glaze due to the drying time.  Information and tips will be provided with your instructions so you will be able to make our own “china” for future projects.  A faux raised wood design to compliment your shelf choice and will be added to the top.  The design will be shape with and embossing technique to give added dimension.  White decorative lace on the tops and fronts of the shelves is included to enhance the overall effect.
