Nancy Jones ArtWorks!...Spokane & Granicrete Spokane New Facility...

Nancy Jones ArtWorks!...Spokane & Granicrete Spokane

Open for business @ new location on March 1, 2010.

We are excited to announce many changes coming in 2010! Effective February 1st, 2010, we have leased a fabulous new facility near Spokane Industrial Park. The 5400 square foot space will include an outstanding showroom space featuring the decorative paint, plaster and concrete finishes our artisans are known for. Our warehouse area will provide production space allowing us to complete custom countertops and furniture/cabinet finishes on-site. We have a dedicated classroom space allowing us to offer more workshops for professional artisans and do-it-yourselfers. And, we will be expanding our sales area to include retail sales of the decorative painting products used in our training as well as finished painted furniture and art pieces. Our contracting business will remain as we continue to complete custom decorative finishes in local homes and commercial spaces.

Using my 35 years of experience in the decorative painting industry, we will be pulling together all of my resources to make ArtWorks!...Spokane and Granicrete Spokane the showcase for decorative finishes for the Inland Northwest.

We have begun the remodeling process, teariing down walls and redecorating all of the walls and floors with specialty finishes, but it will take a while to complete everything the way we envision it. So, as we ask for your patience during our transition, we also welcome your visit anytime! For a while, please be sure to call before stopping by to be sure you can find us.

Watch for notices regarding open houses and sales as we go through this process. Thank you for your past loyalty and we welcome the opportunity to serve you better in the years to come!

Cabin Fever Procrastinator’s Party

Now until February 21st!!!

inspired by Melissa @ The Inspired Room


I know that many of us are suffering from a massive bout of cabin fever right now. We have an idea to make use of the time. The Magazine is sponsoring a Cabin Fever Procrastinator’s Party…let’s finish a project we have been trying to avoid for a while. Mine is an unfinished Chateau Chair I have had for several years a while now. I am going to French Countrify it.

The 5 new colors with unique properties to complement the colors already in the Heavy Body family....

The inorganic pigment has the opacity and lightfastness of a Cadmium color,
without the typical UV/moisture sensitivity, making it an ideal yellow for
outdoor use.
This color rounds out the lines of browns, as it fills a color space between Burnt
Sienna and Burnt Umber, but with a cleaner, redder undertone. Imagine a dark
valued, reddish Burnt Umber, with a warm, clean, rich, melted chocolate undertone.
Clean, dark, and rich, this beautiful organic red pigment fills a color space
between Cadmium Red Dark and Cadmium Red Medium. It is a non-toxic,
higher chroma alternative to Cadmium Red Dark that can be used in outdoor
murals without the UV/moisture sensitivities of a Cadmium color.
This color has been on our wish list for quite some time since we stopped
production of the beloved Naphthamide Maroon, due to the unavailability of the
pigment back in 1997. While Naphthamide Maroon was a single pigment color,
Permanent Maroon is a blend. This smokey, reddish violet color dries with a
sheen that is between glossy and semi-gloss.
A darker and cooler version of Chromium Oxide Green, with very good
opacity. In addition to offering a cool, opaque single pigment color for fine
artists, this color is closer than our regular Chromium Oxide Green to what is
sometimes referred to as "European Green".
Available at your local art supply retailer
