About the Material:

 

Aqua Cast® eco resin is an environmentally friendly fusion of powder and polymer which only needs the addition of water to make beautiful homeware. It can be easily coloured with water based pigments such as resin ink, acrylic paints or mica powders.

  • Environmentally friendly eco resin
  • Perfect for coasters, ornamental vases, planters, candle holders, soap dishes and detailed figurines
  • Easily pigmented using resin inks or other water based pigments
  • Ideal for ceramics & textured art pieces and can be partnered with our art resins when using a mould
  • Excellent reproduction of detail
  • Can be used to create terrazzo pieces
  • High surface hardness and strength
  • Smooth, impact resistant surface
  • Fire protection class 1 (surface spread of flame)
  • High degree of weather resistance for external applications when sealed

✎ No Prior Painting Experience Necessary. If it’s your very first time painting, you might wanna calculate a bit more time to finish the painting. Also, we recommend to skip a detail or two and/or call for assistance when you need!

✎ Step by Step Instructions, but you are always welcome to paint something else!

✎ 1 mold (18x9cm, 1.6cm thick) and 1 mold (12x12cm, 1.2cm thick) or other irregular shapes in stock all Painting Materials Provided and Included in the Ticket Price

Medium: Aqua Cast, Premium alcohol ink and resin materials .

Language of Instruction: English

Duration of the Event: ca 2hrs

 

Important: For optimal drying process and avoiding any changes to your painting, we recommend that you leave your artwork in the studio at least overnight and pick it up at later. Alternatively we can also pack it and ship it to you for an additional 15 CHF per parcel (payable at the workshop in cash or TWINT). If you want to take your artwork home right away, that’s definitely also possible but „at your own risk“ (needs to be transported as horizontal as possible).
