Create a dramatic ocean/beach scene using 2 part epoxy resin and pigments on a piece of live edge wood in this class that is perfect for everyone from absolute beginners to experienced artists.

For the hair dryer, if you have the attachment that narrows the nozzle, bring that too. All other supplies are provided. If you have your own piece of live edge wood you want to use, it must be sanded smooth prior to class and be no larger than 12” x 12”. Pieces can be left to dry and picked up later, or you can elect to take the item home in a container provided.
