Playing with Resin

 
Sunday I was invited to an art party at Amy Duncan's house.  Amy was having a give-away of art supplies and books that she did not want anymore.  I scored big time and brought home a cardboard box full of treasures.

After my shopping spree Amy shared her experience with creating collage assemblages in jar caps.  The cap that I selected was from a Maille mayonnaise jar.  Amy has a wealth and I mean a wealth of assemblage ephemera to choose from and so we began.  Once the ephemera was in place we poured resin over what we had created.  Here is my first attempt at this process.  It was great fun!  I am thinking it would be a perfect way to create ornaments for a Christmas tree.

It is well worth it to go to Amy's blog for some exploration into her art world..... http://fourcornersdesign.blogspot.com/
