Resin paining #77
After creating the magic of last week’s painting, I wanted to try again with different colors.
I mixed six ounces of MasterCast resin. Four and a half ounces of resin was put into one cup and colored with Resin Obsession opaque white. The remaining one and a half 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 green, opaque teal and opaque yellow and the fourth cup with only a little bit of Krylon silver metallic paint and resin.
I covered the entire surface of a 12 inch square white ceramic tile with white resin. In pouring the colors this time, I poured them from smaller size cups which helped me to get no extra (small) drips.
Since the yellow was the lightest color, I put it on the tile first, followed by the green and teal. Next (not shown), I drew the wooden stir stick through the resin like I did in last week’s painting. I ended with some fine drizzles of the silver resin and drew the stick through again.
I like how the silver spread out into a thin line, but left a ‘cloud’ on either side of it. It’s funny when I used these colors previously, I wasn’t sure if I liked them together, but I do here. I think the white is important to balancing things out. I think I like the red and orange of last week’s painting better, but only because it’s darker. I like the contrast of those colors with the white. Several of you commented that last week’s painting was like a bouquet of poppies. I think this one looks more like ginkgo leaves.
What do you think?
