Now is a great time to invest in your creativity and update your portfolio.  Wow your designers and clients with these stunning, surface-tested best selling designs, many achieved in 2-3 steps.  With styles ranging from mid-century modern, rustic glam and shabby chic (classic to contemporary), these finishes have widespread appeal to varied tastes and budgets.

In this 3 day class, students will produce 15 samples, including 12 from the combined talents of Liz & Karen, and 3 from Sue's Jewelry Collection.  Discover fresh ways to use new products, and old favorites, from Proceed, Bella and Metropolis-Ivas, and more.  Of course, no session is complete without a dash of glitter, mica, glass, beads, metallic foil, and crystal gems!  

The in-depth workshop manual includes detailed recipes for each finish, product use info, and resource lists.
