FAT Paint Company (TFPC) makes artisan chalk-style paint, NOT chalk paint. FAT Paint is a latex-based paint “FAT’n’d” up with a little bit of chalky minerals. Hence the clever name.
Netties Expressions holds Sign Painting Workshops throughout the year. Groups of 4 allows for a more intimate and relaxing setting. It also allows me to give each of you more one-on-one time with your sign.
Happy Monday to you all!!
I think it's time for me to share ALL the details regarding my paint workshops. I will specifically be talking about my "Large framed wooden signs" today.
I have two workshops coming up in the month of July. The first workshop is on July 10th and the second workshop is on July 24th. These workshops start at 7pm and run approximately 1.5 to 2 hours depending on whether everyone arrives on time, how complex the design is, the number of paint colours which you use, etc.
Have you had your eye on a design or sign which you've been wanting to purchase? Maybe you've wanted to have your own family name sign or wished that you could get a sign in different colours...
...well, now is your chance!!
Ask your sister(s) or a friend or friends to join you. Do a mother/daughter evening or get your significant other to join you. Spend an evening with 5 other people just like yourself who want to paint a sign. There will be both homemade food and drinks prepared by myself, for you to enjoy during the evening. You will leave with a beautiful finished sign which you can be proud of.
The workshop(s) will be held in my home until I can find a more permanent solution. There will be 6 seats available per workshop. I prefer smaller workshops as it allows me to give more one-on-one time to each participant if needed.
These signs will not be painted freehand. My wooden sign workshops are done with stencils which I have designed and cut myself. This allows anyone to paint a beautiful sign.
The fee includes EVERYTHING which you need to paint a sign. I supply the wood, stencil(s), FAT paint, brushes, sandpaper, painters tape, hanging hardware, apron(s), etc. All you have to bring is yourself and the enthusiasm to paint a sign. :) Aprons are provided although I don't recommend wearing your best clothing.
Your sign will be made from 3/4" GIS plywood (good one side) and framed with a pine frame. Your sign is an all wood sign which means it will be a little bit heavy.
Below is the process of getting ready for your workshop and what will take place at the workshop.
Prior to the workshop
In this workshop you get to choose from four different sizes of signs. These are considered large framed signs which retail for $95 + tax. This workshop is $80 + GST which equals $84 (CAD).
If you want to go ahead and purchase a seat in one of the two July workshops, click HERE. You're more than welcome to drop by my retail location to purchase a seat and browse through my designs. Payment is accepted by cash, debit, credit, or e-transfer. E-transfer payments may be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The four sizes are: 8" x 40" | 12" x 30" | 16" x 20" | 18" x 18"
The frame adds on 0.5" to each side so the actual size of the signs would be as follows: 9" x 41" | 13" x 31" | 17" x 21" | 19" x 19"
This gives a nice variety in sizes. I'll share the different design choices which you can choose from below.
As you can see, this gives you quite a nice assortment of designs to choose from. I will be adding more designs as I have time. If you want me to create a custom design for you, please contact me or drop by my retail location.

Today I'm going to share a very simple DIY project. You can copy this if you like or use this to get your own ideas going. It's always amazing to me what a little paint and some flowers can do.
