Epoxy Resin Workshop
at The Ranch
Instructor: Nanz Aalund
10am – 4pm
If you’ve worked with wire/metals or metal clays, you’ll want to learn how to incorporate resins in your work! And this workshop comes just in time for the Holidays!! Learn to capture photographs, drawings, or layer found objects in clear epoxy into your own open bezels, bezel cups, etc for earrings, pendants and other jewelry elements. We will also: learn to layer the resin with colored paper; color resin with pigment; discover finishing options and clean-up of projects. Expect to come away with several finished pieces – and the skills to continue on your own!
