Color Theory:

One of the most common problem we face in the decorating business is working with a color that is just a little bit off. The cause could be the wrong light, reflected light or just the wrong tint of color. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to adjust the color right on the spot rather than have to run to the paint store for yet another quart of paint.

Learn the basics of mixing color using real, available pigments and not just with theory. All hands-on.

One of the problems with with traditional color theory as taught in schools is that optical and graphic (RGB and CMYK) primary colors are used in demonstrations. This approach is fine for graphic design but not for interior design.

Color theory is taught at Dundean Studios from a practical standpoint where real paints, glazes and pigments are used and not just primary theory. Paint chemistry is also covered so one has a better understanding of modern and low VOC paints.

Learning how to mix colors in transparent glazes is also key for a successful decorative painting business.

An invaluable course for professionals and amateurs. I will guarantee that this will prove to be one of the most useful courses you can take for your career in Decorative Finishing or Interior Decorating.
