Do you think about making a lovely handmade gift for loved ones or decorating your space for the most sparkly celebrations of the year? In that case, this is the right place to get your inspiration!
My HDF panel may be just a “simple house”, but thanks to all the techniques and elements, there is so much to look at: extraordinary, rich, shiny textures paired beautifully with winter-inspired elements and images to create a magical, almost fairy-tale atmosphere.
If you’d like to get more confident with dimensional, clustered compositions similar to this little house and add more texture and depth to your projects – I’m here to help!
The “Golden Wonderland” panel is rich in techniques and creative ideas, which you can easily transfer to many other surfaces and projects. Multiple “signature” Finnabair style concepts are included in it: layering, building textures and interesting visual effects using inspiring art mediums, paints, and dimensional elements. This is also an excellent opportunity to get inspired to use parts made with Finnabair moulds from the 2022 release.
During the video, you can watch all the “creative magic” happen and learn how to make beautiful, vintage backgrounds based on transferring techniques, stencils and Jewel Effect Paste. Then, I will take you through the whole project, element by element, layer by layer, to finally get to the final touches and small bits and pieces.
“Golden Wonderland” Video Class will take you on a fun, creative journey where you can learn about essential mixed-media products such as gesso, gels, Impasto, Liquid Acrylic Paint and finally, Metallique Waxes.
The whole process is recorded in detail, and you can watch it as many times as you wish!
This dynamic, informative, encouraging Video Class is suitable for all – only an elementary crafting experience is needed!

You might know me as Finnabair, but my real name is Anna Dabrowska-Pekocka, and I’m a mixed-media artist, teacher, coach and product designer.
Transforming and upcycling everyday objects is the cornerstone of my craft; to make this “casual magic” possible for everyone, I develop approachable techniques for all skill levels. Between textures and paint, my love for dimensional artwork shaped my distinctive style. Mix in expressive freedom, awakening a creative spark each person holds inside, and therapeutic, releasing powers of art, and you’ll have a picture of my core values.
What had started as a hobby, in 2011 transformed into teaching in-person mixed media classes with immediate success. In 2013, I established a long-term relationship with one of the top craft suppliers worldwide, Prima Marketing; since then, I have counted myself among the most active and best-known product designers in the mixed-media world. The products I come up withstand out thanks to their distinctive style, which is unique to my brand, and blur the line between craft supplies, home décor, and fine art.
After over ten years on the market, I’m one of the most recognizable and experienced professional teachers in my field. My classes are in great demand, and I continuously strive to deliver the best possible experience and quality to my students. Being able to say that I successfully turned my passion into a full-time job is an incredible feeling.
My mission? To continue this magical, artistic journey, and guide, teach and encourage as many creative souls as I can on their path of self-discovery.
Art is always the Answer.
