February 15, 2021 – Elissa Spektor is the founder of Hippie Crafter, a full line of crafting products and art supplies based out of Miami Beach. With 2 young girls, a husband, and a Labrador named Harley, she has always had an artistic side. Hippie Crafter was created to offer premium grade art supplies in an approachable package.
Since launching late last year, their Epoxy Resin has been a run away success. People can’t seem to get enough of it.
Epoxy Resin is a 2 part mixture that combines to make a clear plastic that can be used to pour in molds or tables or cover canvases or tables. It cures to create a hard plastic. Searching YouTube or TikTok brings up countless videos of people making custom tumblers, ashtrays, or jewelry.
Some people mix in Mica Powder to add colors and shine and create original art from the poured material. Others create elaborate dining room tables with it in its clear original state sandwiched between two pieces of driftwood.
“Epoxy Resin is something people are just getting introduced to and the options are limitless. It really lets you get creative and make whatever you can imagine. Previously this was something only professional artists would use, but with the smaller sizes and detailed instructions, it’s allowed anyone to get creative.” – Elissa
