By living in Florida, I’m constantly inspired by my surroundings. And sometimes, that spills over into my epoxy art.
That’s why I’m showing you how to make ocean waves with resin.
Because we can’t always get to the beach as often as we’d like.
You’ll want to mix enough resin for art to cover your painting surface. For this 12-inch square tile, that was 6 ounces.
Then, color the little bit of leftover resin with silver metallic spray paint.
Cover the painting surface with alternating ribbons of teal and blue resin. Then, stripes of white resin. Finally, use a heat gun to push white resin over the blue and teal. That’s where you’re going to get the foamy-looking ocean waves.
At the end, add thin lines of the silver resin. It helps to add to the depth of the colors. Plus, the solvents in the silver paint will create cells as the resin cures.
It’s hard to describe how to make ocean waves with resin, which is why I’ve got this video:
I love how this resin painting perfectly captures heavy ocean waves.
This painting will look great framed or can be a serving tray for a party.
The silver makes the painting look like the deep end of the ocean.
Have you ever let nature inspire your resin paintings?
Ready to get started with resin but confused about where to start? It’s not your fault! There is so much information out there. How can you possibly know it all? It’s why I wrote the book, Resin Fundamentals. It contains everything beginners need to know to create art that will have people saying, ‘WOW!’ Buy a copy of the PDF book, and a download link arrives in your email in minutes.
