Early in March I jetted back to Masterminds Week at the home office of Modern Masters in beautiful Valencia, California. I am always overjoyed and honored to join the superteam of experts there to group-think and produce exciting and new DIY projects using primarily Metallic Paint, Front Door Paint, and Metal Effects.
Can you imagine have every one of Modern Masters products and colors right there in front of you, awaiting magic? Oh yeah. Nirvana.
Fellow Masterminds joining me were Mary Childs of Focal Points, faux finisher, muralist, antiqued mirror guru, and Katie Gaines of Love Paper Paint. You just have to check out Katie’s classy take on weddings, and events in general!
We each took on several projects to be featured seasonally on ModernMastersCafe.com, where our tutorials can be found to inspire you to try new products and techniques. Many are perfect to do with a group, or with kids!
Who knew? I have been a faux finisher for 20 years, always wowed by wall finishes created with venetian plasters. Timeless, elegant, troweled wall finishes. I’ve covered a lot of square footage in show homes, my home, and clients’ homes with this gorgeous product.
Did I ever foresee that Modern Masters Venetian Plaster could be used to decorate huge statement-size Easter eggs, like my elegant blue beauty above? No way!
Here’s my second Easter idea, a simple interpretation of paint and a little nature walk in my back yard.
Mary’s Easter eggs, soon to come, are stunning!
Stay tuned for all of the Masterminds projects coming up during spring and summer. You’ll never be without an idea for your home, gifts, or upcoming events!
