Jesmonite – A Medium for the Whole Family

Jesmonite – A Medium for the Whole Family: Finding a creative and engaging activity that the whole family will enjoy together can be an interesting venture. Craft hobbies provide an excellent opportunity for parents and kids to bond, explore their artistic side, and create lasting memories (and art pieces). However, when it comes to choosing the right craft materials, safety is of utmost importance. In this blog post, we’re going to introduce you to Jesmonite— a versatile and safer alternative to resin art— exploring its benefits and why it’s an excellent choice for your next family craft activity.

Embracing Safety without Compromising Creativity: Jesmonite is a water-based composite material that offers a safer alternative to traditional Resin Art. Unlike Epoxy Resin, Jesmonite does not contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or emit harmful fumes during the curing process. Jesmonite also doesn’t require extensive protective measures like respirators or ventilation systems since it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals. (Important: Please proceed with caution for younger children. Proper ventilation is still recommended as well as a respirator, should any participate suffer from lung or other respiratory issues.)

This makes it a more suitable choice for family craft activities, ensuring a safer environment for both parents and kids to unleash the artist within. Parents can have peace of mind knowing that their children can actively participate in the full creative process.

Jesmonite is User-Friendly: One of the key advantages of Jesmonite is its user-friendly nature. Jesmonite consists of a Powder Base and an Acrylic liquid that get mixed together – think Plaster (but better!). Jesmonite can even be mixed with water. Add colours and pour as desired!

Versatility and Creative Freedom: Jesmonite offers a wide range of possibilities for artistic exploration. Its versatile nature allows for various applications, including casting, modeling, and sculpting. Parents and kids can create unique and personalised artwork, such as jewellery, decorative homewares, and even small sculptures. The freedom to experiment with colours, textures, and moulds makes Jesmonite an exciting medium for unleashing creativity.

Minimal Equipment and Cleanup: Unlike resin art, Jesmonite requires minimal specialised equipment. No need for heat guns, painters plastic, torches, scrapers, masking tape and boards. Jesmonite can be mixed and poured with basic tools and because it cures so quickly, tools can be easily cleaned and reused. Additionally, cleaning up after a Jesmonite craft session is relatively straightforward, as it can be washed away with water and a cloth. This simplicity adds to the overall convenience and enjoyment of the family crafting experience (because no one enjoys cleaning up a big mess!)

Jesmonite is the Eco-Friendly Choice: For environmentally conscious families, Jesmonite offers another advantage—it is more environmentally friendly compared to traditional resin art. Jesmonite’s water-based formulation minimizes the environmental impact, making it a greener choice for family craft activities. Use silicone cups and silicone stirrers for an added eco-friendly mixing process. By opting for Jesmonite, parents can teach their children about the importance of sustainability and responsible crafting practices whilst still having an enjoyable and creative time together.

Jesmonite can open up a new world of creativity for families, providing a safer alternative to resin art. Its user-friendly nature, non-toxic composition, versatility, and easy cleanup make it an ideal choice for parents and kids to enjoy as a family craft hobby.
