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?
