Professional Courses

FX Australia Special Effects Training Courses are hands-on and specifically designed to give professional painters, plasterers and renderers expertise in the use of our coatings.

Professional applicators are given step-by-step instruction in the following:

  3. Choosing, pricing and applying special effects finishes for large, complex projects
  4. Marketing special effects finishes

The courses are operated on an individual/company group basis. Each course is designed to suit the needs and capabilities of participants, with two or preferably three people as the minimum requirement. Courses run over a minimum of one day, but can be expanded.

Suggested Course Modules

  2. Stuccos, Waxes and Textured effects
  3. Glazed, Pearlescent & various one-off effects

Course modules can be customised to include products of specific interest from each FX Australia range. Course cost on request, and booking essential.
