Marbling with Resin
SITizens take another shot at experimenting with resin marbling at the Resin Marbled Coaster Workshop, the second resin art workshop organised by the SIT Alumni Leisure Network
As resin has been gaining popularity over the years, people have found a variety of different ways to express their creativity through resin art. Back in April, many SIT Alumni had their first experience with this versatile material through the Resin Cheeseboard Workshop. On 8 – 9 September 2021, a total of 63 alumni tried marbled resin pour at the Resin Marbled Coaster Workshop, led by design studio Concrete Everything.
The participants were provided with two acrylic coasters, which they would be decorating with their resin mixture. To create their resin for pouring, they had to stir clear resin with hardener, then mix it with their preferred colours. A basic colour palette to follow consists of a base colour, a highlight colour, and two marbling colours.
Ms Tricia Kiang, a Culinary Arts Management alumnus, enjoys experimenting with resin and has joined many external resin workshops. “I thoroughly enjoyed how engaging and interactive it was, and it wasn’t too challenging as the trainer guided us well,” she said. Mr Tan Yong He, who graduated from Computer Science & Game Design, especially enjoyed how the activity helped him to relax. He explained, “I am not a creative person, but I enjoy looking at the outcome of the objects I made. It’s quite fun and interesting to create something I can use.”
