We had such a wonderful time this year at the 2017 Creativation Show by the Craft & Hobby Association in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona. It’s always such a fun experience getting to see familiar faces, as well as getting to meet some new people along the way! As always, a special shout out to everyone in the Ranger family for their hard work in both preparing and assisting at the show, it couldn’t happen without everyone’s help and dedication. Today on the blog we will be sharing with you some highlights and recaps of the show with fun photos and videos from Susan Lenart Kazmer and ICE Resin®!

With so many uses of ICE Resin®, there were two separate workshops offered this year at Creativation, one focusing on jewelry techniques and the other on applying ICE Resin® into mixed media projects. The first workshop, ICE Resin® Transparent Illusions, Susan taught her students how to make resin paper to achieve translucent effects using ephemera, tissue, and more. Once the resin paper was made, students applied their paper into a mixed media journal.

Jewelry and mixed media pieces made the perfect accent pieces along the worn, wooden doors that made up the ICE Resin® display booth this year. The booth included colorful swatch charts of ICE Resin® Tints, German Glass Glitter and the new German Glass Glitter Shards, the Tissue Paper Assortment, and so much more. The displayed jewelry made such to give and inspirational touch just to show just how much could be created with this great product!

ICE Resin® Tissue Paper, the ICE Resin® Squeegee, and ICE Resin® German Glass Glitter were just a few of the products showcased in the Innovations display case.

For jewelry makers, or those who wanted to learn more about the process, had the opportunity to learn more from the master metalsmith, Susan Lenart Kazmer. The second workshop offered was ICE Resin® Alchemy, where students learned how to use ICE Resin® Bezels, ICE Resin® Inclusions and more to design and create wearable works of art.

During the show, as visitors stopped by the booth, they were able to watch live demos to learn more about the newly released product and the many uses.
