Resin painting techniques #81
So thanks to everyone who left comments last week in my dirty pour flip cup painting that turned out to be just dirty. I remembered that I had likable results in a dirty pour over white resin and thought maybe I should try that again.
I mixed six ounces of MasterCast resin. Four ounces were colored with Resin Obsession opaque white. The remaining resin was split into three cups and colored with Resin Obsession opaque orange, Resin Obsession opaque black and ResiMetals Golden lustre. I put a drop of ResiBlast into the orange and black. I poured about half of the white resin on a 12 inch square white ceramic tile. I made sure the resin went all the way to the edge. I assembled two dirty pour cups alternating black and orange with layers of white in between. After I poured both of them, I assembled two more cups using some of the gold lustre as well. Once I had the resin poured, I added some of the individual colors in sections as a direct pour. I also dropped some white into some spots where I thought it was getting “gobbled up” by color.
So putting the white down first appears to be the trick. I was also amazed at how much the white and black in the flip cup blended to make gray.
I wasn’t sure that I liked these colors together, but they are growing on me. When I asked my Instagram fans if they liked it, it was an almost 50:50 split between yes and no.
What do you think?
