After 30 years working in the accounting industry Pamela Walker was ready for a change.
A resident of Haliburton for the past 14 years Walker wanted to get into a more creative career highlighting her artistic abilities.
So she enrolled in a four-day course in Colorado where she learned how to make unique creations out of epoxy.
Now the Algonquin Highlands resident has launched Epoxicating Designs a business that specializes in custom coatings.
“I was looking for a way to redo my own countertop and stumbled into this site and fell in love with the product” said Walker. “I was amazed at what they could do with it and I just wanted to tap into my artistic side.”
Walker creates epoxy coatings that can be put on top of almost anything from countertops flooring tables and much more. She adds colours metallics glitter or whatever the client wants. Each design is custom and one of a kind.
“It’s really limitless whatever your imagination can come up with” she said.
The result is a marbleized colourful effect with rich 3D hues and eye catching appeal.
Walker says the coatings are non-toxic stain and scratch resistant UV resistant and can withstand temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. It is also easy to maintain.
The epoxy coating is a cheaper alternative and much cleaner way to replace a counter floor cabinets or whatever it is you would like freshened up said Walker.
The process only takes a few days and is done on site. Walker encourages interested clients to call her for more information or for a quote.
Originally from the Bobcaygeon/Fenelon Falls area Walker has been showcasing her work at the Maynooth Farmers’ Market and is hoping to gain more exposure in the area.
The career change has been a positive one for Walker and she has been receiving good word of mouth thus far.
“I wake up in the morning and go ah I can’t wait to go out and do this” she said. “It’s a very unique product.”
