Getting ready to teach my intermediate resin class at the Tampa Museum of Art. Today we will work on mold making and finishing which requires a lot of hand sanding up to an 8000 grit paper. Finishing is the most difficult part of the resin process. When I prepare for large shows I always hire assistants to do the finishing. Sanding for hours is not as easy as it seems. I have never been able to get anyone to return for another cycle of non-stop sanding!
This Out of Africa 3 bracelet took 5 hours of sanding to get a glass-like finish.
