Lucky Star Classes: Making Retro Resin Bracelets
: : : Making Retro Resin Bangles : : :
Come explore the vast world of resin jewelry making!
First we will take a bangle bracelet or similar piece of jewelry and use it to create a silicone mould. As that cures we will learn the ins and outs of working with resin and experiment with pigments and fillers. Then we will cast a new bangle using our silicone moulds.
As time allows, we will play and create coordinating resin pieces to go with our new bracelets.
