Glitter Pile Academy launched in January 2021! Shelby, owner/operator of Glitter Pile personally teaches online classes for YOU to learn and grow as a resin artist.

Agenda includes: Getting Setup, Supplies, Safety, 2-Part Resin Basics, Making Your First Piece, Common Mistakes & How to Fix.
  • Resin 102: This class is a follow up to Resin 101 and expands on techniques. Great for Beginner ~ Intermediate artists looking for new skills, supplies and troubleshooting common problems.

Includes information on doming vs. glazing, how to dome, how to glaze, how to use liquid latex, troubleshooting, and other options & sealants. 


All classes are held via Zoom and are taught live. I will be on camera but students are not required to be on camera - it's up to you! No supplies needed to participate, just watch and learn. Since classes are taught live, they are not recorded - you do need to be present in order to learn as class materials are not provided afterwards.
