SEMINAR: by Melissa Winton
Join Melissa “Hauntzilla” Winton of Nightmares & Dreamscapes in this make-and-take workshop, where attendees will learn the art of faux finish. Melissa will take attendees through the process of transforming everyday pink installation foam into creepy, corroded turn-of-the-century copper statue to hang on a wall, using inexpensive and easily accessible materials that can also be applied to other similar applications. Afterward, attendees will take with them their very own antique copper creation commemorating the convention and the techniques learned.
