Mandy Crossland of Chic Interiors Wigan began painting furniture strictly as a hobby in 2010. It didn’t take long for that hobby to turn into a passion and soon a thriving business! In 2014 Mandy opened a small boutique shop of her own which she quickly outgrew. Chic Interiors has since expanded into a much larger storefront offering painted furniture, home decor accessories and art finishing products.
Mandy was already offering paint and workshops at her store when she discovered Artisan Enhancements online.
She admits that at first it was the metallic foils and the Scumble glaze that attracted her to the brand. Leaf and Foil Size and Scumble Glaze were two products she had been unable to find in the UK. She knew that the full line of Artisan Enhancements products would be welcome additions to the offerings in her shop.
With a new line up of tools and products in hand, Mandy took her paint finishes to the next level.
Her creations sold in store and online inspire and delight her customers as well as all of us at Artisan Enhancements!
Currently, Mandy’s favorite product is Scumble Glaze for it’s versatility and the depth it adds to her paint finishes.
Mandy offers a wonderful selection of inspiring workshops each month. She finds that her students and DIY customers are especially drawn to the Artisan Enhancements plaster products for creating raised stencil reliefs and added texture. Easy Crackle has also been a popular seller at Chic Interiors for those looking to create an aged effect.
Mandy posts upcoming workshop dates and details on the Chic Interiors Facebook page. Each workshop covers several techniques and applications of Artisan Enhancements products. Students leave inspired and confident, ready to tackle their own projects at home.
Mandy’s insightful ability to combine and layer several products and techniques to create outstanding paint finishes continues to inspire us! We look forward to her next creations and envy those lucky enough to visit her shop and attend her informative art finishing workshops!
