Have you been curious about resin? Or maybe you are just hearing about it for the first time. It can be used to create gorgeous art! A newly developed artist resin - Pebeo’s Gedeo Series Resins - add dimension, vibrancy and offers fascinating effects. In this class, artist Tracy Felix will guide you as you experiment with resin, and you’ll finish two stunning projects in one day.
Project One: Tracy will take you step-by- step creating a mixed media painting using acrylic colors and collage. Super fun in itself, but then, there is the finale… you will finish it by mixing and pouring resin over top of the painting. The clear resin will add shine and enhance the brilliancy to the underlying artwork!
Project Two: Learn to use the new colored resins - Pebeo’s “Fantasy Paints.” It is called “liquid art”, and we will be pouring these lacquer-based paints onto a specially designed raised edge “liquid art panel.” If you haven’t seen these paints yet, you’re in for a treat! This is a delightfully fun and easy process. Tracy will show you her techniques, tips and tricks to working with this new, fun medium to create a work that is really indescribable, echoing the look of crystalline, pearlized paint. This newly developed class promises to be a fun and fascinating adventure!
Optional project: Bring in one of your own pieces of art that you have previously created – in any medium! – and you can pour a little resin here and there to see how clear resin can seal and enhance your art. What Fun!
To see examples of the Pebeo resins, come to ARTspot, just half a block away from Cole Studio. ARTspot has the full line of Pebeo paints and the staff can help you select colors that will give your Resin painting lots of contrast. Make a trip over there to find the liquid art panels as well.

For Project One: Mixed Media Art with Clear Resin over top
**Note: You can bring in a selection of Acrylic paints you already have, but we always recommend professional artist quality paints. It is better to have a few colors of artist quality fully pigmented color than a full box of “cheap” student grade paints: they have fillers to make them inexpensive and they will frustrate you with dull color mixes! Tracy uses “Golden” brand paints as the pigments are pure and bright.
Acrylic Gel Medium:
For Project Two: Purely Poured Resin Art
Are you bringing an additional piece of your own are to try clear resin on? (not required) The amount of clear resin Tracy supplies is not enough to fully cover additional pieces, but is enough to provide a sample/test. If you would like to fully coat this test piece, then you will need to purchase a Gedeo Crystal Resin (150 ml for $21.50 at ARTspot). You can bring samples of anything to try resin on: oil (make sure it is dry), pastel, any kind of drawing materials, watercolor, encaustic (wax), or any mixed media work – resin is fabulous over any medium!
