Eunice's beginner Acrylic Pouring Class was just what I needed to get started. It was a very enjoyable and informative class and well worth the 1hr 40 drive to get there. Highly recommend:)

Thank you!

**Challenged myself to do something creative, good for my wellbeing after working from home for 16 months in lock-down! **
The Resin Painting day was certainly something that I had no experience of beforehand, nor for that matter have I done very much in the way of anything artistic for too many years ... but I was determined to be creative and even brought along with me some small items of colour and texture to see if they would inspire me or even if they could end up in my final art work (which they did). Eunice has a great set-up, the studio worked well for the 4 of us and her instruction was clear, easy to follow and also very engaging. It wasn't difficult to get inspired by the techniques and all the colours of the mica pigments that we were able to use. I had fun. I have 2 pictures, bookmarks and coasters to show for my time. I will keep going with this as I want to become more confident with colour and technique. Thank you.

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

Jackie it was pleasure and your embellishments were a perfect addition to your work. Keep enjoying your new Resin adventures

*Sticky but Fabulous*
Not cakes but a Resin Painting day with Eunice!
I had no idea what to expect as I was a complete novice. Before anything listen to the advice to ‘ double glove’. When you get sticky you can remove the top pair and on you go. A little tricky initially but Eunice is the most helpful, able and patient tutor. Explaining every step of the way and ready to jump in and help as soon as needed. I am very pleased with what I achieved and you can can apply the techniques to other areas of your art or just make it a really rewarding one off present and experience for yourself and a friend. When you have finished your artwork, it is left in the studio and posted out to you, ‘when cured’ in just under a week. It’s a shame that I am unable to add pictures but be assured that you will create something unique and stunning. Liz

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

thank you Liz, I am delighted you enjoyed your day of sticky creating. Both your artworks were fabulous. I hope you have them up on your wall. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Eunice
