Master The Art Of European Painted Finishes

Learn how to achieve incredible European painted finishes with Amy Howard in this immersive course that includes on demand training, LIVE session recordings, and all inclusive guides.


Hi, my name is Amy Howard...

I am thrilled to announce a brand-new season of the European Finishing Course that combines on-demand training, live session recordings, and all inclusive guides covering nine different European finishes never before seen in one place.

After the launch of my Old World Finishing Course, many students saw how incredible it was to learn finishing processes they never thought were possible. Over and over all of my students said "Amy, take us to the next level" - so I’ve spent the last year documenting nine new European finishes I know you're going to love.

Now you too can learn many of the same finishing techniques that lead to the success of my furniture line, The Amy Howard Collection, for over 30 years.

In the European Finishing Course, I have focused on Scandinavian finishes, provincial, and French finishes that you would see on antiques all over Europe.

You are going to love learning and using these processes to take your portfolio of finishes to the next level!
