FAQ

  • How long does it take for the resin to cure?

    You'll use a slow curing epoxy resin in this class and that makes it ideal for embedding items in. Epoxies generally take 24 hours to reach hard cure but some are a little quicker.

  • I'm a papercrafter and I've never done anything like resin before. Is resin easy to use?

    There is a bit of a learning curve when you first start out with resin. But you'll learn all the basics of working with resin and increase your skills as you go along. Once you understand how to use resin, yes, it is easy!

  • Is epoxy resin safe to use?

    Art resins, Craft resins and Jewellery resins are all formulated with the home crafter in mind so they are safe to use when used as directed by the manufacturer. Epoxy resin becomes inert once it's cured so it can be safely handled.

I Learned So Much!

by Marion Barltrop, Toowoomba

What a fantastic workshop!! I can't wait to do other ones. I learned soooo much. It was more than worth the cost. Mylaine was so friendly, patient and generous. I came away with so many ideas. I loved that while Mylaine teaches you she also encourages you to come up with your own ideas and express your own creativity. I sent my daughter pictures of all the things that I made and she said it looks like a treasure trove.

What a wonderful experience!

Scott Breeschoten, Australia

I played around with resin for a while but felt a need to learn more about these products and how they work, from someone who would be willing to share their knowledge, experience and expertise with me. As a result, I attended Myléne’s Resin Jewellery Workshop. She has so much patience and in-depth knowledge and experience in this field, and her hands-on approach when presenting the workshop and her willingness to share her knowledge and experience enabled me to learn a great deal from her in a very relaxed environment. I happily recommend her workshops to anyone who wants to learn how to work with resin and create beautiful jewellery pieces. Thanks, Myléne!

Resin Jewellery Workshop

Erica Morgante, Gold Coast QLD

My first workshop on the Gold Coast, left me feeling quite disappointed; a large class, minimal time with the instructor, limited information and using only basic molds. I would highly recommend Mylene’s Resin Made Simple course to anyone who wants to make resin jewellery. Myléne walks you through everything a newbie needs to know and by the end of the class you are so excited about what you’ve created. There’s every opportunity to ask questions and expand your knowledge about a variety of resins and casting tips and tricks. I will definitely be doing more classes with Mylene and highly recommend her professionalism and expertise and generosity of knowledge sharing.
