*This workshop is recorded (you will receive the video link 48 to 72 hours after the workshop).
Before class, it is important to measure the amount of resin needed to fill your moulds. To do this, fill your mould with water and pour the amount of water in your mould into a measuring cup. Note the amount (volume in ml) you get. This will be the amount of resin you will need to complete your project.
*It is VERY IMPORTANT that this procedure be done several hours before the workshop, as the mould must be completely dry before pouring the resin.
Part 1: Theory: Introduction to ResinIn this theory portion, you will explore all the basic concepts to master resin: how to prepare it, working time, types of resin available on the market, types of projects you can create, types of products you can use to colour it, and how to be eco-responsible in your practice.
Part 2: Let's get creative!In Part 2, you will mix your resin to create your first projects. For the first project, you will mix resin with pigments/paint/ink and pour it directly on your work surface (wood panel). For the second project, you will mix resin with pigment/paint/ink and pour it into coaster moulds.
Part 3: Q & ATo end the workshop, Melyna will answer any questions you may have about resin.
