About the Author
Kerin is part mad scientist, rogue artist, goddess of software quality, teacher, writer and explorer of all things curious. When not in the studio or garage sailing, she can be found frolicking about deserted beaches seeking out windswept treasures and watching inspiring tales wafting by in a remote area of the southern Oregon coast.
Kerin loves to work with many art materials including resins, found objects, clays of all sorts and metals.
Another great love is sharing with other artists. To that end she has launched an online mixed media art site with their own etsy team, a huge collection of art images, online workshops, featured artists, book reviews and artistic challenges.
She, along with her gifted husband, Charley Slaughter, create mechanical art (automata), sculpture and jewelry and are represented in several galleries. They also teach at national art retreats as well as local venues. Kerin's work can be found in Somerset Studio magazine, Altered Bits Zine, 1,000 Steampunk Creations (Quarry Books July 2011) and 500 Pendants and Lockets (Lark Books May 2008).

Typically, when I purchase a new art book I flip with the pages, taking in all of the pictures, then set it on my dusty bookshelf for a potential future peek. This book, however, is totally different: one copy resides on my bookshelf and the other hasn't left my desk since I bought it four months ago. I flipped through the pages at least a dozen times, then read it twice. Unlike most mixed media art books, Kerin's book contains projects that I would LOVE to try. They are so innovated and unique, and just stunningly gorgeous. I want to make ALL of them! Her witty humor and understandable detailed directions are comparable to none - I am left with no questions, but rather an amazing new skill set to create fun and visually pleasing pieces; my only problem was which one to create first.
Epoxy clay has got to be one of the coolest products on the market today. Kerin teaches us how to make molds to create duplicates of things we love (like ornate textures or Frozen Charlottes), and schools us on the infinite things you can do with epoxie clay - you can safely use it on things left outside, you can use in it water (i.e. a fish tank!), you can make sturdy but delicate looking jewelry, and so many other exciting and wondrous things that you should just go buy this book right now. Among my favorite projects are the light-up pieces and a raven handbag that's to die for!
If I could rate this book 10 stars, I would do it in a heartbeat!
Kerin demystifies Apoxy Sculpt in a very exciting way. Instructions for making a silicone mold from both paste and putty are demonstrated in her book as well as a double-sided 3-D mold. Incorporating embedded embellishments in the clay and working with liquid resin is also explained. Grasping the magnitude of what can be created using Kerin's techniques and absorbing her imaginative uses for Apoxy Sculpt and applying them to your own personal style, will keep your creative muse happily awake at night!
This book includes 22 projects plus additional instructions and tips for working with epoxy clay, liquid resin and silicone. Finding a source for the products used is not a problem either for her "Resources" page is a goldmine! Kerin's imagination and projects are wonderfully "Curious"! This book, imho, is a "must have" for the mixed media artist!
