From Hobby to Epoxy Resin Business

My Story

Hi I’m Remi, a Vista resin ambassador.

My love for resin crafts started as a hobby and quickly transformed into my very own small business. I set up an Instagram page for LilaHarz back in October 2020 after getting so many comments about an epoxy resin cake stand I had created.

From there, my business really took off with the help of word of mouth from family and friends. It wasn’t long before I had followers messaging my Instagram page to order customised resin coasters and other items, which is a lovely and humbling experience!

As my resin creations progressed, I set up an Etsy page to broaden my horizons. The demand for my products grew and grew, and towards the end of 2020 I decided to rent a dedicated art studio space to keep up.

My Vista Journey

I came across Vista as a resin hobbyist, and back then both Vista and I were new kids on the block.

I was immediately blown away by the high quality and finish that the Vista range provides, and their price and level of customer service is an absolute bonus.

I have to say, my favourite product is Turbo. With a high demand for my resin coasters, trays and other items I’m always busy in the studio, and Turbo’s fast curing time is a god send. I love that I’m able to demould faster, and in turn I can create more products in less time and continue to meet demands.

Top Tips

  • Don’t overlook the importance of PPE when working with epoxy resin. Breathing in resin dust can cause irritation to the respiratory system, so a respirator is your best friend
  • Mix and match colours! I love pairing contrasting colours from the Vista Colours range to create unique coasters
  • Both Cascade and Turbo are great for small craft pieces like jewellery which are best to start out with as a beginner to craft resin

Vista Pick

My top pick from the Vista product collection is Turbo.
