"These girls ROCK! They provide the most comprehensive set of notes that I've ever seen. The finishes they teach have all been previously done by them ON THE WALL and are proven money-makers. Within two weeks of returning from class I sold three jobs from my new sample boards.
George H from New York
I loved Karen and Liz's class. The finishes are amazing and they "Wow" everyone that sees them. The instruction and organization is unmatched. Karen was able to get me out of my comfort zone and make me realize that I am capable of more. I have sold several of the finishes since taking this class. Karen and Liz are extremely talented and I would recommend this class to anyone.

This class not only provides with you with a cutting edge set of boards to fill your portfolio, but they provide you with an additional set of recipes to make another set of samples after the class. It keeps the adrenaline going.
Plus these are already wall-tested finishes and you are getting tips throughout the class telling you just how it will work on a large surface. You will enjoy this class...it is full of laughs and finishes that are proven to work.
