Resin Ink Frames - Spring 2019

$49

with Tara Finlay

Calendar Next session starts Mar 4, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

With this exciting process, you never know how it is going to turn out until the resin is cured and you can turn the frame over to see the striking results. Learn how to prepare frames, mix and pour 2-part epoxy resin, and then use a special technique to create designs in the resin with the inks. If you have ever seen a glass paper weight with colored class ribbons inside, this technique is reminiscent of that. If you are sensitive you may need to purchase a respirator mask but the area we will be working in is well-ventilated and most people don’t notice a scent. Students must be 18 years or older due to working with the resin. Students under 18 years old must be accompanied by a paying parent.

Students will leave their project to dry for 24 hours and will be able to pick up after March 6th.

Two long-time Maine educators felt there was a need for a simpler program for those just starting out, or have already tried but became frustrated. Spanish-Keep It Simple is very user-friendly so makes it perfect for independent learners.
