Does this class cover the creation of sculpted gels in addition to the art that goes on top?
Wow, another bucket list Item.

Can't wait until I'm established out there, able to go to Events like these.

Do you hold this every year?

I'm a big LE fan.
This class is our first one so we'll see how it goes as to whether we will be holding every year.

And yes there will be plenty of gel sculpting going on!

The info Jim McConnell gives on gel chemistry and lamps is so so needed by all of us-- he talks about gel and lamps generically- not just LE, and you know that Sam Biddle is an amazing, talented educator as well!!


Hope to see you guys there
