Quoth The Raven: It's An Inspired Remnants Book Tour & Giveaway!
Mechanical Flying Bird class with Kerin Gale. Then she wrote this really great book — Inspired Remnants, Curious Dreams — on how to do lots and lots of things with epoxy!
FIXIT® Sculpt epoxy I used, makes it so! To sum it up... it lets you stick this to that! Just mix two equal parts of the epoxy clay components until they are completely blended and you're ready to go!
Well, there you have it, folks... a mixed media project in only a few hours. Something that otherwise would have taken days to dry, and just think of all those toxic substances you'd need to glue disparate objects together. So now for the fun part...
Especially for this Book Tour Blog Hop, Kerin has some great stuff to give away. Simply leave a comment on this post by May 22nd and you'll be entered to win one of these fabulous prizes! (Please note that digital items can be "shipped" anywhere but the remaining prizes are for the U.S. only)
1. A copy of Inspired Remnants, Curious Dreams book
2. One "Power Pack" of Aves brand epoxy clay
3. Fluid Chalks Online Workshop by Lesley Venable on her Art of Altering Site
4. Two digital collage sheets by Alicia Caudle of Altered Bits
5. A sample pack of Silputty 40 (an epoxy formula Kerin likes with a longer curing time)
6. 1oz. of ICE Resin and a mixed metal bezel from Susan Lenart Kazmer
In addition, Kerin has 6 more Grand Prize Giveaways if you review her book on amazon... and is offering $5 off class tuition/book bundles for Book Tour blog readers (just tell 'em Yesterday's Trash sent ya)! Find out more on her original Book Tour Kickoff blog post.
