About the event
In this class, award winning artist Shannon Eis offers a basic introduction on how to use 2 part epoxy resin and how to make a 10x10 "Resin Geode wall piece". Students will have a finished Resin Geode Piece on a 10x10 wood panel by end of class. Piece must be left overnight to cure. Students will have lots of amazing choices to tint/color their resin pieces. They will learn about using mica powder pigments, alcohol inks and other things in resin. They will also have a wide selection of crushed glass, stones, mica flakes, glitters of all sizes and colors, etc to make a Unique, one of a kind Geode piece that they must leave overnight to dry, and can pickup the next day. The Resin Geode Painting class is $75 per person, all supplies are provided for you. Feel free to bring anything youd like to add to your resin piece! The epoxy resin that we are using is called Art Resin. It is non toxic and is safe to use in an open area without masks. If you are sensitive to smells, feel free to bring your own mask as well.
