Resin painting #103

You would think if you had success with a process using one set of colors, you could get it to work with another set of colors, right?  Yeah, you would think. I wanted to try painting with a similar technique as painting 102, but with different colors.  I mixed six ounces of resin to cover a… Read more »

I didn’t care for the muddiness of last week’s resin dirty pour painting, so I decided to use the same colors but in a different technique.  I also wanted to try warming dimethicone and flicking it onto the painting surface.

I decided to try another week with dimethicone to get resin cells.  Resin painting #22 finally made its way to the top fo the pile for a do-over and I decided to work with those colors again for this painting. I mixed seven ounces of resin.  I pulled 3/4 of an ounce out each and… Read more »

resin painting white cells

This week I jumped into resin painting with dimethicone to make cells. I picked up a bottle of ‘hair smoothing’ serum from the grocery store that included dimethicone as an ingredient. I mixed 7 ounces of resin to paint over resin painting #21. The first four ounces of resin I colored with Resin Obsession opaque… Read more »

four color direct pour resin painting

I did a direct resin pour painting with four colors this week. (Five if you include the white.) The colors are a little bright and funky and may not suit all eyeballs. Consider yourself warned. Many thanks to Ilene W. for inspiring me to not paint with so much white this week. She left a… Read more »
