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".
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.

I had a custom order request on very short notice from our local Ford dealer, Roblin Ford. They were looking for a special retirement gift for a long term employee who was actually the former owner.
I agreed to take on the challenge. :)

I make both wood signs and framed wood signs.
I thought I would explain the difference between the two types today.
Generally speaking, the framed wood signs are made from 3/4" good one side plywood. Most everyone knows how awful the sides of plywood are which is why I frame them. It adds a little bit to the sign...makes it a little bigger, covers the rough, raw edges and dresses the whole sign up.
My regular wood signs are made from pine. The pine wood I use has nice edges which doesn't make it necessary to frame them. I often route the pine edges just to give the edge of the sign a nice rounded edge.
