This relaxed online tutorial follows Dorophya as she pulls out her brushes and paints to create a Rustic Layered Patina piece; talking and showing you through the process and sharing her techniques in creating Rustic Layered Pieces from her time in the TR Gallery. 

A Video originally recorded by her as part of Artisan At Home NZ whilst painting gives you a real time and raw close up look of the process and the different stages she takes the piece through to create the end result. Combining multiple techniques that you can seperate and break apart for different looks.

A relaxed shooting style and recording where she breaks each step down for you to easily follow at home to create this Artisanal Rustic Layered Patina finish. 

Here you will follow and see her transform the front of the set of drawers pictured from the beginning to end where she highlights and pin points  the different steps. The video contains special notes through out. 

This tutorial is ideal for those who are familiar/ well versed with the basics of Artisan Premium Chalk Paints & Waxes,  as it focusses completely on the manipulation of Artisan Paints & products  to create this particular finish; rather than a holistic view on how the Artisan Paint system works for general finishes .

"Wow fantastic tutorial thank you Dorothea! So much information and well explained. I've been wanting to try something like this for ages but have always been too scared. Now I feel inspired to give it a go. I'll be watching this again before I start. The summary notes will be very helpful to have on hand to refer to during the process too. And of course your finished piece is beautiful,❤️ if I can get a result even half as good as that I'll be happy Thanks again!" - Wendy M

"Well I finally managed to give this project a go after watching your tutorial several times :)  This is far from perfect (especially the top surface) but I learned so much throughout the process.    I'm surprised how much fun this was and can't wait to be able to order some more vibrant Artisan colours which I think will work better. ... 

Thanks again for the tutorial, it was so helpful.  And it was great to be able to refer back to it when my mind went blank during the painting process :)" - Wendy M
