I've been messing about in my studio today, knocking around some ideas for Artsycrafts and of course I can't share those with you just yet (that was quite mean wasn't it?) but I thought that you might like to see a couple of pieces that I did last week with Ice Resin.
I had forgotten just how amazing this stuff is and I know that it is available to purchase in the UK here at The Bead Scene which is where I'll be teaching some classes later in the year. It's an absolute doddle to use. Arrange you collage or whatever it is that you want to embed in the resin. Then you simply pour out equal amounts of the two parts of resin. Stir for two minutes and pour.....simples!!! My big silver piece is going to be used in an altered book which is intended to be a class in the summer. At the moment, it is still quite flat looking but that is all about to change. The beauty of this product is that you can add extra layers and sandwich stuff between them. You can even make the top layer really quite domed which is what I am hoping to do with this piece. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Right that's me for today, I am off to further my sewing machine research......wish me luck. I could be a whole lot poorer by the weekend!!!!
