WHAT IS JESMONITE?

Jesmonite is a composite material made from a combination of acrylic resin and gypsum powder, along with other additives to enhance its properties. It is known for its versatility, as it can be used for various applications, including architectural features, sculptures, decorative items, and more. Jesmonite is prized for its lightweight, durable, and easy-to-work-with characteristics, making it a popular choice among artists, designers, and architects.

Jesmonite was initially invented in the UK more than 40 years ago. It was created by Peter Hawkins in 1984 while working for the company Jesmond Dene, which is how the material got its name. Jesmonite was developed as an alternative to traditional casting materials like plaster and concrete.

JESMONITE RESIN MOLDS

The premium silicone molds in this workshop will allow you to create six captivating Jesmonite pieces: a shell-shaped dish, an elegant trinket box, a trio of bathroom accessories, and a circular tray. Anastasia shows crafters how to experiment with Jesmonite pigments to create custom colors, add terrazzo with seashells, and apply gold leaf. She’ll also demonstrate a one-cup and two-cup marbling technique that will take any Jesmonite piece to the next level.
