Colourful Resin Jewellery: Cold Enamel, Mould Making & Casting with Clare John

Introduce gorgeous colour easily to your work by using resin and learn how to produce wonderful finishes similar to vitreous enamel, without the use of expensive equipment: resin is ideal for those working on a small scale.

During the course the tutor will demonstrate how to make moulds from RTV silicone and cast pieces in resin and you will be able to mix your own colours and produce special effects. The resins (Cold Enamels) are non-toxic and odourless and you will use two types during the course; Liquid resin for recessed flat pieces and Gel resin for recessed rings and bangles. The finishing techniques for both resins, including cutting back, cleaning and polishing will be covered as will the remedy of any problems. You will also be shown how to cast resin in moulds and embed objects in resin. You may bring samples of work to practice the techniques and information about the sample type will be supplied prior to the course, the tutor will also supply plated blanks for your use.

Clare John has been a practising jeweller for over 30 years and she runs her own successful jewellery business. She specialises in using different forms of resin in her work and she has recently discovered a new supplier of high quality resin products. Clare also uses her expertise in the use of resin to undertake consultancy and training work in the jewellery and associated industries as well as occasionally teaching for the School of Jewellery in her area of expertise.
