A 2 day workshop that covers it all. You will learn how to make your master “original” design. This will be sculpted by you and we will discuss a number of materials that can be used for this. Once you have made your design you will learn how to make a mould using Silicon. This mould will be yours and an original design by you. We will than cast resin into your mould using Epoxy resin which is slow curing resin.
No experience is necessary, open to all.
