Grain Painting class at Landis Valley
Learn the art of fancy painting or grain painting using present day acrylic glazes on two frames and two small boxes to replicate the look used by 18th century folk artists. Jim will show you how to prep the pieces and experiment with a variety of graining tools on practice boards to work out your designs. Then, you will learn how to finish the projects with distressing/antiquing effects.
Workshop instructor Jim King has a B.A. in art from Goshen College, Goshen, Indiana. He began studying vinegar painting in the 1980s when he became inspired by gain painting antiques he was collecting. He purchased blanket chests in disrepair at auctions and flea markets and then restored them and applied vinegar painted surfaces. He had difficulty finding smaller chests and started having Old Order cabinetmakers copy his antiques which he then grain painted using a variety of traditional techniques.
Class is part of Landis Valley's 2018 Summer Institute.
