Shake And Shoot Powdercoat Two Ways

October 18, 2020 – October 24, 2020

Rachel Shimpock

In this class students will explore not one but 2 application types for powdercoat. What is powdercoat? It is a durable and versatile powdered plastic that can be applied with a static gun or sifters and flows on the surface with heat. It is a simple, magical process that will add color to any item that can tolerate 400 degrees and fit in a kitchen toaster. That includes: metal, ceramic, glass, cork, concrete, seashells, etc! After we lay down a base coat many fun manipulations can happen! Students will leave with an abundance of powdercoat samples provided by the instructor and small objects provided by student to transform with color! Open to all skill levels.
