Silicones and epoxy resins – basic techniques 

Some people are reluctant to use synthetic materials as silicone, rubber and resin. This prejudice leads to neglect the infinite expressive possibilities that these materials offer to create jewelry or sculptures. They do not require firing, they do not require investment in special equipment, their cost is more than affordable. They are unbreakable materials and if properly coloured and treated can imitate stone, porcelain, metal or glass. Resin elements can also be integrated with other materials to make jewelry or sculptures.
