- Explore our resin pigments along with our natural mica powder (in over 50 lovely shades)
- Embellish your pieces using our eco-glitter and sparkles
- Achieve a perfect finish, removing any bubbles that appear
- Finishing techniques and adding findings to your creations to make them ready to wear
- Use tips, trade secrets and techniques
- Make use of leftover resin

It is not always possible to use them during the workshop, but discussion with such items may prove helpful for future planning of your new craft.
