Resin Accessories Story

After losing her job due to the Corona pandemic, Walaa resorted to handicrafts since she believed that they relieved tension in the life of the individual and left a mark of beauty and charm on them. The topic that attracted her interest was the art of resin, so she began her journey to learn about it and read its history using YouTube and other internet sites. After that, Walaa joined special online courses that helped her acquire skills that enabled her to work in this field, and when she began to master this work, she opened her page on the media and started her project, which is mainly based on making handmade products using resin, in addition to recycling wood and using it in many of the products.

Walaa's project includes a lot of items for the home and kitchen, like tables, serving trays, clocks, and wall hangings, as well as several pieces of art, like medals, pendants, and bookmarks.
She makes these things out of different kinds of wood, like beech and oak, with different thicknesses. In addition to gold and silver paper, different types of colors (metallics, alcohol inks, pigments, and acrylics), as well as silicone molds. On request, she uses Arabic scripts like the Ruqaa script and the Kufic script to give these pieces a unique Arabic feel.

Walaa requires between 12 hours and several days to manufacture these products, depending on the complexity of the design and the number of steps required to reach the final form. For example, she paints the mold with an insulating material, allows it to dry, and ensures that it is clean and free of dust and lint. Following that, she starts to measure the amount of resin appropriate for the mold and starts molding it, moving it continually for 3 to 5 minutes, considering the kind of resin, its temperature, and its hardening. Then she adds the color to it, pours it into the mold, adds gold leaf to it in the required form, leaves it for 8 to 12 hours, then adds the chosen writing in Arabic, then repeats the same process to cast the second layer. The final stages are to remove the piece from the mold, paint it with a thin layer of resin to give it shine, and add some accessories as desired, all done with love until the product is ready for the customer to receive.

Walaa's only problem with her project is that she still has to take pictures of the products and use advanced tools to edit them so that they look more modern and unique to customers.
