False Grain Painting Class at Landis Valley
Participants will learn to grain paint a frame. A dark glaze is applied over yellow paint. Then while the glaze is wet, a sponatneous texture is created using the traditional tools of a comb, conrcob, putty, fingers, sponge, or brush.
Jim King has a B.A. in art from Goshen College, Goshen, IN. He began studying vinegar painting in the 1980's when he was inspired by grain 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 when he then grain painted using a variety of traditional techniques.
