Resin painting introduction

I have been resin painting for a few weeks now.  It’s been a great change for me and a way to learn even more about how to work with resin.  I started with the idea that I would make a visual journal for me to keep track of what I did, along with the results.  After doing this for awhile, I thought maybe some of you would want to see my results as well.

You are invited to go with me on my resin painting journey as I catalog my outcomes.  Comments and questions are welcome and encouraged.

Before we get started though, I want to say that the techniques I describe to complete resin artwork in this series of blog posts are performed in a controlled environment with sufficient fire safety and health equipment available to myself.  I have been trained in the safe handling and use of hazardous chemicals.  Some of the additives shown which are used in production of the artwork, such as acetone and alcohol, among others are, or may be in combination with other chemicals, extremely flammable, toxic, corrosive, carcinogenic, and/or combustible.  Detailed safety information pertaining to chemicals is made available by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health at the following website: https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/npg/default.html

  1. Resin Obsession strongly urges you NOT to perform the techniques discussed herein unless you have first received appropriate training in the use of such chemicals, and you perform such techniques in a safe environment with the necessary fire safety and health equipment.

I intend to show at least one new pour every Monday.  Get ready.  I’m hoping this will be a lot of fun and a learning experience for all of us.

I am so happy to see a post about resin safety!! This issue is so often overlooked. I teach epoxy resin art classes and workshops worldwide and always focus on safe handling and the true definition of “non-toxic”.

I have noticed that most of the examples of resin paintings are abstract by pouring together various colors and creating “happy accidents.” Are there any artists or examples of more traditional and deliberate subject matter?
