The amazing, unique properties of epoxy resin offers an infinite number of combinations and outcomes when adding color to the resin. Mixing resin with various color mediums such as acrylic paint, inks, and pigment powder tend to create various ways in which the colored resins interact with each other on a canvas. The resin also allows for a multitude of layers to evolve as it cures, adding incredible depth to the painting.
Epoxy resin is an easy art form to try. Anyone can spend a couple of hours creating, having fun, meeting new people, and making art to hang on your wall or give as a unique gift to a loved one.
Attendees will learn various resin art techniques. The attendees will have a choice to create either one 11” x 14” canvas panel resin artwork or a set of four 4” diameter coasters. If attendees have a specific project in mind that they would like to work on instead of the 11 x 14 canvas, please bring to the workshop. Because the resin needs to cure at least 24 hours before being handled, the artwork created by attendees will need to be left overnight at i3 Detroit before being picked up to take home.
Please note that working with resin is very messy and can ruin clothing, please dress accordingly.
