Resin Art on a tray – Beginner Weekday workshop
Resin Art on Tray – Beginner Weekday Workshop
Making a painting with clear resin is a great learning experience.
Resin is a two-part compound that hardens to give a clear and glossy finish. You can either add paints to the resin and then create a painting. Alternatively, you can paint first and then pour the resin over the painting to create the finish.
In this two day workshop, you will learn how to work with the epoxy resin and how to mix colours and techniques for applying and creating designs. All the material will be provided in the workshop.
Takeaway – An 8 inches by 10 inches resin tray (Since resin takes 24 hours to settle, you need to pick up the next day or anytime later when convenient)

Distressed wood photo frame – Beginner workshop in Bangalore
There are times when you want to make something look like it has a little more history than its recent trip from a home store. But who can wait for wood furniture to age naturally and get that distinguished texture and rustic appeal of antique wood. Here is where distressing techniques come into play!
The workshop will cover various techniques to make a wooden frame look like a treasured heirloom.workshop
Participants will begin from scratch and use primer on the wood. One will use candles and layers of colors to create the distressed look on the wood frame in the guided three-hour session.
Chalk paints will come handy to add shades to the frame and get it the look of being weathered and old.
The artist will then steer the participants to the sealing process with an introduction to different types of wax; Antique, clear and white wax would be used in the sealing process of the wood that has been distressed.
We will provide different tips and techniques to use for getting this look with different mediums.
One can use this technique to give a different look to the existing furniture or perhaps to any leftover wood.
