Epoxy Resin Coating DEMO - Locals Only - Oakland California USA

Epoxy Resin Coating Demo July 19, 2011 2pm-4pm in Oakland, CA
Price: $20.00
Address/directions will be given after registration

This 2 hours demo session can give you a good idea of what's like to coat your art with epoxy resin. This is for artists who have never used resin but are very interested in start using epoxy resin coating technique.

In the beginning I will briefly explain what resin coating is all about, as well as giving you a handout, then I will perform coating in front of you. By the end of the session you will have a clear idea of what tools and supplies you may have to purchase and what the cost of such investment can be.

You may bring your art work that you are considering coating on, I will give a consultation on your art piece that you bring to this session. I will not give a consultation to an art piece that you didn't bring to my session. If you forget to bring it with you, then you'll have no consultation.

By watching how resin is applied to art right in front of your eyes, you will be able to decide if this is something you want to be doing in your studio or home. Each artist has unique work space situation, and only you can tell if this is going to work in your work space situation.

All questions will be answered within my brain capacity, which may not be much, but I have spent a substantial amount of time and experiments so I know something about epoxy resin. Toxicity of resin will also be talked about.

Epoxy resin causes fumes, and also propane gas is used in the workshop, just so you know. If you are pregnant or might be pregnant, think about it twice.

After taking this demo workshop, if you decided that you will want to learn the actual technique, you may enroll in a private workshop, and the $20 you paid will be taken off from the workshop fee of $200. That makes it $180 instead of $200. In the actual workshop, we schedule the meetings based on your convenience, and the techniques are taught step by step. Materials used during the workshop is included in the fee, but if you are going to be independently using epoxy, you'll need to invest on tools. You'll learn what you need at this demo workshop.

This demo workshop is limited to coating technique only, and only two part epoxy is used. No mold and no 3D techniques are taught.

Please take this 2 hour demo workshop before adding resin coating to your art making. Epoxy resin is not easy to handle, and certainly it is not for everybody. If it was that easy, so many people would have been doing it already.
