Oh gosh, I am addicted absolutely love this bought it for myself although this was the kit for mistletoe I’ve also managed to make a load of Holly leaves and a dragonfly as well as the mistletoe. Still have lots of product left. Have now ordered more resin in different colours and other stuff. I’m intending on having a making party with my best friend for her Birthday and a separate session with my sister-in-law for her birthday... So going to be lots and lots of fun.
Response from Inion:Thank you for such a lovely review of our products! There is always a lot of resin left over in most of our kits so it's really good that you were able to make other things as well. Thank you for your new order also - it is in the post now. Hope the birthday parties go well for your friend and your sister-in-law. Look forward to seeing some photos of what you all make. Best wishes Melody and Abigail
Great fun though some of the mistletoe berries broke off their stems. I loved doing this and may well be hooked!
It would be helpful to include info on how to get the colour off one's fingers - I managed to have green fingers (literally!) for our boxing day lunch!
Think I need to make the flowers next and progress to the wreath for next year's Christmas!
You are based near me - do you plan any face to face workshops?
Response from Inion:Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and I am glad that you enjoyed the kit. If you go to our website and look at the Instruction Sheets you will see a Guide to using and storing resin dip, which gives all the information re getting it from your fingers. However, it does peel off quite easily when it is dry, rather like nail varnish. We do advise in our kits that you look at these guides. The mistletoe berries need very gentle handling, and the wires have to be carefully twisted apart or the berries do tend to break off. We only found this out ourselves very recently, when one of our customers who has arthritis asked us to separate the berries before we posted them, - so sorry we could not add it in the instructions. The mistletoe berries we had last year were not so "fragile" and could be handled more roughly. Yes we do plan face to face workshops and we advertise them on our website and here on Craft Courses. We did plan to hold some in January but have hesitated because of Covid, but are hopeful for February. Watch this space!
Purchased for a friend - with the request that they keep it for Christmas, but they were way too impatient! Delivery was super-quick, and she was delighted with it - and has already sent me photos of the finished product, which she has really enjoyed. Great value. Thank you.
Response from Inion:Thank you so much - so pleased your friend enjoyed it. What is she going to open on Christmas Day????
Beautiful looking kit. It’s a present so haven’t tried making it. The business owners were so lovely to deal with. Very swift communications
Response from Inion:Thank you so much - we are such a small business so we always feel we have to try twice as hard. But we are a friendly family so it's not too difficult!
I haven’t used the kit yet but it all looks very professional and nicely wrapped.
I spoke to one of the lovely ladies who run this business and she was so helpful and kind. I would definitely recommend buying from this business.
Response from Inion:Thank you for your review. We do try hard with the presentation so your comment about the wrapping is very well received!
Bought as a gift, so as yet, I don't know how it's turned out. The packaging was lovely and the instructions seem clear and concise.
Response from Inion:Thank you for your kind comments. I do hope they like the gift.
Arrived promptly, well packaged. Instructions and videos were clear and looked straightforward to do. Only drying time wasn’t explained, but we made all leaf pairs first before assembling. I shared the present with a friend and we had a lovely afternoon pre-Christmas making a smaller bunch each. The kit was enough to make two decent sized bunches. We made a few more pairs of leaves without berries. Did not need thinner. Delighted with the end product.
Response from Inion:Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased that you enjoyed the mistletoe kit, and that you liked the bunches of mistletoe you made. It is so nice to get such nice comments. Thank you.
Abigail and Melody were very helpful and I cannot wait to hear what my friends and family think of their presents… so excited!!
Response from Inion:It was a pleasure to help you Helen and we also hope all your friends and family like their presents too. Send us some photos when they are finished!
Loved it good materials and easy instructions really loved the result
Response from Inion:So pleased you enjoyed the kit Judy. Thank you for your lovely review. Many thanks Abby and Melody
The kit arrived promptly and was well packed. Instructions were excellent and I am very pleased with the finished result. A small amount of thinner would be great in the kit as resin started to thicken despite me closing lid and dipping all the leaves at one sitting. That said, I have made 20 sprigs and I am very happy with them and the great service I have received.
Response from Inion:Thank you Mary for such a positive review - we will definitely look into adding a small bottle of thinners to our kits. Always grateful for such feedback.
Great item and quality pieces supplied. Highly recommend this company who are very quick with their responses and extremely pleasant to do business with.
Response from Inion:Thank you for your review Joy. It helps because all our customers are great too. I must add you have made some stunning wreaths with your kits - thank you for the photos.
