Resin painting techniques #76

Resin painting #76

I liked the technique of last week where I used my stirring utensil to draw through the resin.  I intended for this painting to be a puddle pour doing the same thing, but it didn’t quite work out that way.  (in a good way I think)

I mixed five ounces of MasterCast resin.  Three ounces of resin was put into one cup and colored with Resin Obsession opaque white.  The remaining three ounces of resin were split into four cups, going heavy on three and a little lighter on the fourth.  The first three cups were colored with Resin Obsession opaque red, Resin Obsession opaque orange, Resin Obsession opaque black and the fourth cup with only a little bit of ResiMetals gold lustre.

I covered the entire surface of a 12 inch square white ceramic tile with white resin.  I started with pouring the red onto the white as small puddles.

Since I ended up dribbling the resin, I scrapped the idea of a ‘pure’ puddle pour.

I added in the orange and black resin next.  Once I liked the placement, I used my stir stick to draw through the resin.  I added a bit of the gold lustre resin, then drew through it again.

I realize I don’t say this much, but I really like this painting.

A few people commented that they thought it looked like a field of poppies.  I think maybe that’s why I like it too.

How is your resin painting time going?  What ‘happy accidents’ have you had?
