Holiday Resin projects with Heidi from EliChem

December 03, 2020


When: Dec 3, 2020 11:00 AM Vancouver

Christmas, my favorite time of the year!

My Mom always decorated our home so beautifully and the magic of Christmas still lingers because of her creative touches in every nook and corner. In honor of my Mom, I am going to blend tradition with a new spin by adding a beautiful resin piece to the mix. In this class you will learn to work with a fluid two-part coating resin. We will review the characteristics of Eli-Chem resins, how to prepare your surface for application, pouring, mixing and applying tints. We will demonstrate how and when to use a heat gun, art torch and other guiding objects. We will also demonstrate how to use ResiBlast to create beautiful lacing and cells in your art. And maybe add a little fresh garland to the mix!
