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?
