SO WHAT IS A FAN DECK, HOW DO I USE ONE AND WHERE DO I GET ONE?

 

Let me paint a little picture here for a moment…..(no pun intended….well, maybe it was intended a little bit.)  You start out at the paint store and stand there staring at all of those little individual cards, get overwhelmed, then frustrated, then impatient, until you just eenie meenie miney moe…..and buy a gallon of paint to bring home.  Then the color ends up not being what you hoped it would be.  How many of you have done that?  

Well, what if I told you that this elusive tool called the paint fan deck could be yours….from any line of paint you want?  I mean….take it home, keep it forever yours.  I mean, every time you have a new paint project, you don’t have to go to the store, you just grab that handy dandy fan deck and start choosing colors!  I mean….hallelujiah, amirite?   Think of how much time and frustration this thing will save you.

But then, it’s entirely possible that after you come down from the excitement you start thinking, um…but I’m still overwhelmed, Marilynn.  Never fear!  That’s what this video is for!  Have you watched it yet?  Well what are you waiting for?  Go for it!  It has all the tips and tricks you need to know to master one of my favorite tools….the paint fan deck.  If you want a bit more guidance, check out my video about choosing a paint color you will like in any light.
