Resin painting #102

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?

I love this! For some reason it reminds me of fish near a tropical reef.
