Resin, transparent images, and the reflections of light off metal...

Register now at the Wickford Art Association . This is a Make and Take class so it's perfect if you want to make gifts or have a fune, creative family and friends outing. You'll also learn all the techniques so you can apply them to your own jewelry or artwork at home.

Take advantage of the transparency of resin and the reflection of light off metal to make gorgeous, glowing jewelry.  We will be using UV resin in class, although this technique will work with any resin. This type of resin requires no mixing, cures with UV light or sunlight and is much easier to work with than standard 2-part resins.  

You can make several pendants and try different transparent images with gold, silver or copper metal leaf. You can even stack images together in transparent layers to give it more dimension.  

No experience needed. All materials included in materials fee, but please bring some small scissors if you have them.

I'm doing a new January 30 day challenge! Follow along on Instagram @christyshermanart or on Facebook at christy.j.sherman if you'd like to see my progress and cheer me on.  ;) 

My first piece for January is this little Carolina Wren I sculpted in my own soldered brass bezel.

Goals: Get better with soldering by making more pieces. Get better/faster with designing in metal, stones and clay. Get used to sculpting animals that can be bezel set - consistent fairly shallow height, especially at the edges, and smaller than I usually go.

Rules: which are Guidelines because rules are meant to be broken ;)
  • Make at least 10 pieces in January that have at least one bezel (the metal piece surrounding the clay or stone). Several of them should combine stones, metal, my own sculpted work, and possibly resin or other mixed media.
  • Post progress every day. That may not mean being in the studio every day since real life often gets in the way. If I make a lot of progress over a weekend, I might spread out the posts over a few days when things get busy. 
  • Finish things. That means I can use existing molds of animals I made before, or empty bezels that I've already made or bought, as long as I'm learning or practicing something with every project.
  • Have fun and experiment! Failure is ok.
