Resin painting techniques #80
I’m not sure if it’s because I’m stubborn or determined, but I want to get better at dirty pour and flip cup paintings. I thought this week I would try a different technique and use three flip cups at once.
I mixed six ounces of MasterCast resin. Four ounces of resin were split into three smaller cups and colored with Resin Obsession opaque purple, opaque magenta and opaque teal. The remaining two ounces were colored with Resin Obsession opaque white, plus three drops of ResiBlast. I assembled three small cups (three ounce drinking cups) as dirty pour cups alternating each color with white for several layers in the cup. I placed all three cups in the center on a 12 inch square white ceramic tile, then lifted each one at a time (purple, then magenta followed by teal). Here’s what things looked like before I lifted the cup.
I picked up the tile and tilted it to spread the resin, but it didn’t get all the way to the edges. With the little bit of resin I had left, I created two more small dirty pour cups and used them to go around the edges.
I’m still befuddled by the fact that you can add so much white resin to a dirty pour cup and it get gobbled up by color.
While the painting isn’t muddy, it’s still not what I was hoping for. I really thought there would be more white to balance everything out and pull it all together.
The upper right corner of the painting turned out interesting. This was from one of the two ‘little’ dirty pours I did at the end.
What do you think? What are your techniques for getting more white in your dirty pour paintings?
