About the course
In this course I will be showing you how to create your own breathtaking resin butterflies. I will be going over with you my methods of shaping and assembling your own unique frame using a simple soldering technique, along with the kinds of tools that will help you get the job done. After assembling our frame we will move onto the resin portion of the class where I will give you tips and tricks to effectively manipulate your resin and achieve your desired look. If you’re like me and have been wanting to add a little more color and vibrancy to your work this is a fun and easy way to start, with this method and a little imagination you will be able to create so many different and unique pieces.
About The Instructor
I was born in Germany but raised in the mountains of Utah for the majority of my life. With this background I loved to learn about and explore different cultures and traditions. A lot of my inspiration comes from learning about these places, and that pushes me to be a better artist. Growing up so close to nature was a great experience that helped form my art style today. I've always loved nature and my life has always been heavily intertwined with it. It's been a goal of mine to always try to recreate the beauty of the natural world. I have always done some form of art, as far back as i can remember. It started at a very young age with drawing and painting, then moved into fashion and design, and currently, my true love, jewelry. Jewelry making had always been a side hobby for me, something I did just for myself. As I was going through my sewing phase, I started to realize how much more I enjoyed the process of making the accessories for the outfit than the outfit itself. Because of this I decided to prefect my skills with years in metalsmithing and jewelry classes and hope to share my knowledge with you.
