Create Mixed Media by Tonia Davenport
“When Jen Cushman first gave me a copy of her beautiful, self-published book, Explore, Create, Resinate: Mixed Media Techniques using Ice Resin , I was excited to see what it looked like, though I have to admit, I wasn’t so sure I’d actually be creating anything with resin anytime soon because I’ve had less-than-stellar results with it in the past. But now . . .look! I’ve made something and thanks to Jen’s helpful tips in her book, I didn’t even mess any part of my project up! Ice Resin really is a great resin, as I’m sure many of you already know and in her book, Jen really does a great job of explaining how to use the product with great success.” read more–>
