Resin SIG

From Dallas Makerspace
Jump to: navigation, search

The Resin Special Interest group is for DMS members who are interested in using resins in a wide variety of projects. Resin can be used in so many ways-jewelry, woodworking, creative arts, gaming, fabrication, cosplay - just to name a few. Due to this, there are various ways the Resin SIG has potential to crossover into other committee areas. The current leader for the Resin SIG is Laura Gonzalez (talk handle @starreyedgirl).

The Resin SIG is currently housed under the Creative Arts committee.

Resin SIG Goals

  1. Development of a like minded group who can share resources and tips for resin casting
  2. learning new techniques
  3. Development of classes within a variety of different committees using resin

How to Join

The Resin SIG is open to all DMS members, from novice to expert. Some tools, such as the Vacuum and Pressure pot will require training before use. Please add your name in alphabetical order to this Wiki and include your TALK handle.
