Another FARRAGOZ Giveaway

Yesterday was my birthday, but, I'm giving you a gift.  Another chance to win a FREE 12 month online "FARRAGOZ, The Art of Patina" painting course?

Hey, we can also call it a pre-Christmas gift.  It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Since sharing my decision to partner with FARRAGOZ, I've shared, not only the projects I've completed from the course, like this beautiful clock face,

but my own spin on the design, using the paint recipes.

I've also used some of the techniques for my own designs.

After the response to my first giveaway, my friends at FARRAGOZ have agreed to let me GIVEAWAY another 12 MONTH ONLINE COURSE to one of my followers.  Whoo Hooooooo.

The easy to follow instructions, and video tutorials will have you painting like a pro in no time.  Want to learn how to create this beautiful angel plaque?  You can.

How about this old world trumeau?  A FARRAGOZ instructor will guide you every step of the way, and you can move at your own pace.

Would you like to learn how to mix your own paint, and gesso?  The recipes are economical, and I'm loving the finishes I get using them.

You'll learn all this, and more.

So, are you ready for another chance to win a 12 month online FARRAGOZ course?

We've automated it this time.  Just follow the instructions below.



This is not a paid post.  FARRAGOZ has enrolled me in their course to give an honest review.  All opinions are my own.  My decision to become a FARRAGOZ affiliate, and sponsor this giveaway, was based on my impression of the course.

    Why do I like Patina? Because it speaks of history and a story of those who loved it, used it before. I often wonder what stories a piece could tell me based on the patina!

  15. Happy, happy birthday!
    There is nothing better than patina on an object, it gives it a story. Patina adds character, charm and texture. It is my favorite!

  16. I love the look of a piece that has been around and loved. It speaks of history and the care that people had for their treasured possessions.

  20. I am a patina freak and have been following Villabarnes for a long time, in awe of what she can do with finishes. I had no idea there was anyplace like Farragoz that teaches the true antique and vintage recipes for finishes. I was thrilled to read about it on Rosemary's blog. So I went to the site and watched all the videos and am so hoping to win a chance to learn those gorgeous finishes. My fingers are crossed! Thanks for the opportunity to enter. (And have a peaceful birthday!)

  21. I love patina because it gives a piece a whole different look of age, depth and texture! Hugs, Leena
