It looks like the third time is a charm. 🙂
After ruining painting 107, I decided it would get a do-over this week. I wanted plenty of resin, so I mixed eight ounces this time. I separated off an ounce to mix with Resin Obsession opaque white pigment and an ounce to mix with Krylon gold metallic paint. The remaining resin got split between two cups and mixed with Resin Obsession opaque black and opaque red. I added a drop of dimethicone to the white resin.
The black and red resin went down first to cover up the previous painting.
The idea for the next layer was to cover the seams between the red and black resin with the white and gold resin. I applied it in a few key places, then used a heat gun to push the resin around to accentuate the cells.
I think I got it this time. When I first walked away from the painting, I wasn’t sure that I was going to like it. But after leaving it alone for a day, I found I liked it much better.
What I like best in this painting is the alligator in the lower left corner. It’s a Florida thing I guess.
Do you find animals in resin paintings?
