Working with Resin
This will be a comprehensive and detailed workshop and demonstration exploring the use of high gloss resins as a coating for acrylic collages and paintings and prints. Resins can add new and exciting dimension to any artist's work!
You will learn the basics of working with the resins, safety precautions, and how to make your own moulds from which you can create cast resin forms. We will introduce the new no vocarb, non-toxic resin and cover info on traditional resins and casting resins. Additionally, we will explore encaustic-like resin matt finishes and creative ventures using colored resin. Exciting ideas juxtaposing gloss resin surfaces with other material will be shared. We will learn to make inexpensive wood substrates for use with resins. Each participant will receive a premade 12”x12” substrate on which to create an image and bring to workshop ready for a gloss resin coating. Each student will create one piece of work coated with the resin gloss finish. Workshop designed for fine artists, printmakers, photographers and crafters. All materials will be provided.
