About the Authors:
Stan Farrell, President of ComposiMold, was educated in material science and has been researching advanced composites for the past 12 years. The idea for the composite mold making material initially came from his inability to find a better material for making model airplane components. From there, he developed the ComposiMold and other ideas have grown. We expect more composite products will come as ComposiMold grows.
Michelle Miller, Art and Outreach Director, is a graduate of the Maine College of Art with a BFA in Graphic Design and Media Arts. Her mission is to educate and inspire. In this book, you will see many creative projects that Michelle made that you can make too!
