Intro to Resin

09/10/2018 6:00 pm 10 people limit Open Lab 870 SEK

Join us in this two-step workshop where we create 3D art and get an introduction to working with resin as a sealer, to make an object and as an adhesive.

Maybe you´ve seen the glass-like dandelion paperweights, thats resin for you! The possibilities of embedding textures and objects to create interesting eye-candy are endless. The resin creates a hard shiny finish, it stiffens up paper and it makes the colours vibrant.

We have emptied out our stash and prepared a smorgasboard of embellishment to get your hands on, from sequins, glitter, paper, gold leaf to buttons, washi tape, lace, and much more.

The use of resin is very diverse and the goal of this workshop is to show you a vast use of the material and inspire you to create nice finishes. Whether it be coating your artwork, making your own jewellery moulds or creating cool finishes using resin as a super strong adhesive.

Part 1:

Resin as a sealer

Each student will be working on a 10×10 cm wood panel to create a mini artwork. Bring your own papers, textiles and textures or pick from a selection of provided materials. Once you are satisfied with your artwork, you will pour the resin and coat your artwork.

Resin casting with silicone mould

Replicate an object or texture from scratch is so much fun. What about a piece of a lace or a gem that you would like to incorporate in your art. In this step you will get an opportunity to work with fast drying putty to create your own moulds. Fill the mould with resin and wait for it to set

Part 2:

Once the resin is set, takes at least 48 hours, it´s time for the finishing touches. You might want to sand down the edges, or cover it in more embellishment. With ultra fast resin adhesive you can continue to embellish your art by covering the surface it in pieces of bead, sequins or stone powder.

Et voila! 3D art is ready!
