Services & Projects

The product and service offering includes the Academy of Decorative Paint Techniques. It specialises in training courses in basic, advance and specialised paint techniques.

For centuries decorative painting was a well-kept secret. Now, thanks to established techniques and recipes, anyone can learn how to apply these classic methods. During the training courses one will acquire the insight, skills and confidence to decorate your living spaces. You can also use this training to start your own business venture as a decorative paint artist or trainer. The courses are packed with information and are easy to follow. There is a strong focus on practical application.

Residential decorative make-over projects are also part of the service offerings. The Magic Brush has the expertise to apply various decorative paint techniques to interior and exterior wall surfaces, kitchens, tiles, furniture as well as on concrete and metal finishes. Furniture make-overs are cost effective and popular. You are guaranteed to turn old fashioned and boring pieces into trendy, unique and stylish masterpieces. Items that will be the envy of your friends and family. Are you tired of your conventional solid one-color wall services? It’s now the time to give your home a new elegant look.

The Magic Brush also renders normal conventional painting services at value for money prices. You can contact me for a quotation.

Mentoring programmes have also become very popular. In the studio environment I will guide and assist you to create your own individual pieces.  You apply the techniques of your choice in a relaxed, safe and conducive environment. The programme allows you to bring your own items and apply the techniques of your choice to it.
