Resin painting #99

So I treated myself to a new white tile this week instead of painting over another painting.  It was my original intent to create a white based negative space painting.  More on that in a minute.

I mixed seven ounces of resin and put 2/3 of an ounce each into three cups and colored as follows:  Resin Obsession opaque teal plus a drop of dimethicone, a mix of Resin Obsession opaque orange and opaque red with a drop of dimethicone and 1/2 teaspoon Krylon gold metallic spray paint.  The remaining resin was colored with Resin Obsession opaque white.

I covered the tile completely with the white resin, then added a ribbon of teal and orange/red from one corner to the other to start my orange teal direct pour painting.

Despite only pouring a little bit of resin, it spread quite well, especially the orange.  Since it wasn’t going to stay in the center of the painting, I decided to go with it and fill up that ‘orange’ corner.

I added more resin, including the resin colored with the Krylon gold paint.

I didn’t like this painting at first, but it’s growing on me.  I think it has more to do with my color choices.  I really wanted more of a red that was a little orange and instead got an orange that was a little red.

I had a good time using my heat gun making cells in this painting.  I’m not sure which I like better – teal over orange or orange over teal.

I love this closeup part of the painting.  It reminds me of the colors of jasper cabochons I used in my metalsmithing days.

What do you think of my color choices?

my friend wanted me to make an orb for her, like Arlene Shermans’. Do you carry those molds, which resin would work best, and would it be able to sand off the seam?

I kind of like the colors, they clash nicely and pop up vibrantly 🙂 The only bit that is a bit distracting is the bottom bit where the colors seem to run off the tile.
Keep them coming!

Love the lacing!! I don’t usually care for this type of color contrast, but it is very striking.
