I wanted to try spraying dimethicone on my paintings again, so that is what I focused on for this week’s resin painting direct pour technique.
I started with a 12 inch white ceramic tile and mixed seven ounces of resin. Next, I put 3/4 of an ounce into three cups and colored them with Resin Obsession opaque black, Resin Obsession opaque blue with a smidge of black and and 1/2 teaspoon Krylon silver metallic spray paint. The remaining resin was colored with Resin Obsession opaque white.
I covered the entire tile with white resin, then added dots of blue and black.
I drew my stick through the black and blue resin, then added some silver to the painting.
At this point, I used my heat gun to warm up dimethicone in a plastic container.
Would you believe me if I told you I melted the container yet did not change the consistency of the dimethicone? AAARGH! I tried flicking it on the painting with a toothbrush anyway, but it was still too thick to come off easily. At this point, I added a little bit of dimethicone to the black and blue resin I had left, then applied that to the painting. I used a heat gun to push things around a bit and remove bubbles.
While it didn’t turn out as I expected, I still like it.
The resin with the added dimethicone definitely gave me more cells.
I also like the blue in this painting. Who knows if I will ever be able to recreate that color again.
What are you resin painting this week?
