Resin painting techniques #76

resin painting study direct pour

Resin painting #76 I liked the technique of last week where I used my stirring utensil to draw through the resin.  I intended for this painting to be a puddle pour doing the same thing, but it didn’t quite work out that way.  (in a good way I think) I mixed five ounces of MasterCast resin.  Three… Read more »

Resin painting #75 I wanted to incorporate more colors into a resin painting.  I’ve tried to stay with no more than three colors per painting, but I wanted to use more this week.

Resin painting techniques #74

Resin painting #74 I wanted to try another dirty (flip cup) pour this week.  Since I had good luck with my painting last week by using less color in the cup, I wanted to try another one. I mixed six ounces of MasterCast resin.  Four and a half ounces of resin was put into one cup and… Read more »

Resin painting techniques #73

Resin painting #73 Unfortunately, I only had time this week to get one painting done. I’m finding it a challenge to make something work over my previous ‘poor’ painting choices and find that’s my motivation for this painting.  I dug deep on this one and decided to paint over #15.  I used the same colors,… Read more »

negative space resin painting

Resin painting #71 Let’s try another negative space painting, but this time with black as the back.  I’ve also figured out that if I’m going to cover a painting, using the same colors in the next layer will work best should something show through. The cover painting for this new one is #55.  I mixed six… Read more »

Resin painting techniques #67 and #68

resin painting with Pearl ex powders Resin painting #67 I wanted focus more on resin painting with pearl ex powders in a method other than mixing them with resin. Let's just jump right in and stipulate this is the ugliest painting ever.  I'm not giving you formulas because who in the world would want to create this?? I was going through... Read more »

Resin painting techniques #65 and #66

resin painting with spray paint After liking the initial results last week of using spray paint directly on resin, I wanted to see if there was a way I could better control how the paint hits the resin surface.  I squirrel stuff away like crazy in my studio and was happy to find these implements to help me get it...

Resin painting techniques #63 and #64

I have been thinking a lot about solvents and the part they play in getting a resin painting to look the way you want.  This week, I thought it might be fun to try spray paint — directly on the painting!  I don’t know what the exact ingredients are in spray paint, but knowing it’s… Read more »

resin painting techniques

Resin painting pour #61 Technique focus:  to do a ‘geode like’ pour In deciding to try making resin geodes, I wanted to start small and practice simply with pouring stripes of resin next to each other.  No expectations that this would be great art — simply learning. I mixed five ounces of resin.  Three were… Read more »
