On The Road with New Products and Painting Techniques

11 Feb

What a great time of year to be traveling in the northeast! Ahem, not really. Through wind and snow and cold, Old Village Paint president Laney Landis has been traveling to trade shows!  Last weekend she was in Oak, PA at the Market Square Show for vendors and store owners.

She showed off the new Old Village Paint Graining Liquid Line.  Have you seen it? We have lots of beautiful new colors!

On Sunday, February 2nd she taught a class on “Decorative Painting and Graining” demonstrating everything from using a corn cob to a rolled rag.  Here are two very short videos.  You can use these to get an antique, chic, or historic effect on furniture or artwork.

Here’s some photos from the class.
