CHA 2016 Recap – ICE Resin®

January 20th, 2016

It’s the final day of our CHA 2016 Recaps and last but not least we are featuring ICE Resin®!

First was Education Day with Susan Lenart Kazmer!




We had such a great time putting together the ICE Resin booth – even Alain felt inspired and made a custom ICE Resin demo table using old house shutters and filling the top of the table with many gallons of resin. Extreme ICE Resin-ing perhaps? :)


There were so many beautiful jewelry and mixed media samples that the booth started to resemble an art gallery!




Here are some mixed media projects using ICE Resin including ICE Resin paper


The new foils add color and dimension under the resin


There were so many fun things to learn at Susan Lenart Kazmer’s demo


She even agreed to model her multi layered necklace piece! :)


Jen Cushman shared some great techniques in her class

January 19th, 2016

Education day! We had so much fun being apart of Dina’s class.


Dina’s Designer Challenge really shows off her painterly style using the Distress Crayons on her new Media Board.


Demo time! It was wonderful to see how Dina can use her new products in so many different ways.

Here is her new Mica Sprays with her Media Paints on the new Media Board.


There were awesome swatch and sample display boards that really showcased her unique products and style.



And with no surprise, even her badge cannot be safe from her paints! :)
