18C250A - UV Resin, Epoxy and Polymer for the Mixed Media Enthusiast
August 24-25, 2018
Friday-Saturday, 9am-4pm

18C250A - UV Resin, Epoxy and Polymer for the Mixed Media Enthusiast

18C250A - UV Resin, Epoxy and Polymer for the Mixed Media Enthusiast

Whether you’re a paper crafter, jewelry-maker, book arts afficianado or other creative tinkerer, you’ll find plenty of applications for the unique properties of UV resin, epoxy modeling compound, and polymer. Learn to prepare paper ephemera (think vintage cigar bands, postage stamps, match book covers, origami paper, etc.) for a crystal clear coating of UV-curing resin. Then mix 2-part epoxy compound and embed images under flat or glass domes to construct a bezel charm or pendant. Designs are embellished (or not!) with ball chain and beads for added texture and color.

Next up is a slick direct transfer technique (no decals!) with black-and-white photocopies and polymer clay. Utilize high contrast photocopies of your own artwork, clip art, or photographs. Unlike traditional transfer methods, this process yields a crisp, smudge-free image. Optionally add color with pencils or alcohol inks.

Materials fee includes: Metal bezels, glass domes, pin-back findings, ball chain, world coins, Apoxie Sculpt modeling compound, wooden picks, Nitrile gloves, beads, polymer clay, liquid polymer clay. Students will have the use of Jill’s tools and supplies during the workshop: UV-curing lamps, UV resin, paper sealant, templates, paint brushes, wet wipes, ceramic tiles, image transfer agent, burnishers, parchment paper, texture stamps, colored pencils, alcohol inks, clay cutters, and more.

Level: Beginner and above

Student Supply List:
Readers, scissors, fine-tip Sharpie, pasta machine (If you have one for polymer clay use only), bone folder (if you have one), paper ephemera and black-and-white photocopies (not ink jet) approximately 1 in. x 1 in.

Tuition $215
Materials Fee $20
