Resin painting #100

Wow.  Painting number 100!  I hope all of you have enjoyed the journey on this series.  I know it’s been a fun learning experience for me.

For this week’s painting, I wanted to revisit a dirty pour but instead using dimethicone to create cells.  I mixed about seven ounces of resin and put 1 ounce into three cups and colored with  Resin Obsession magenta plus a drop of dimethicone, a mix of Resin Obsession opaque yellow with a smidge of opaque orange with a drop of dimethicone and 1/2 teaspoon Krylon gold metallic spray paint.  The remaining resin was colored with Resin Obsession opaque white.

For the first couple of layers, I poured white, then poured a color, then completely covered it with white before pouring the next color.  For the last few layers, I poured two colors in a the same time at different ends of the cup.  Once assembled, I poured the entire cup in one pour, then used some extra color to fill in.

I wasn’t happy with the painting when I walked away, but it got better while it cured.  I think adding the extra magenta and silver at the end was a big help but it’s still muddier than I wish it was.

What has been your experience with dirty pour resin paintings?

I usually leave about half of each color out of the dirty pour, because I never know what will happen. Occasionally the color I want to see the most of will completely disappear in the dirty pour. Either because it is a denser paint than I thought and sank to the bottom or because it dispersed into another paint.

This is beautiful! It reminds me of an impressionist garden painting, like something Monet would do.
