Resin painting techniques #82
Let me stipulate from the beginning this was not the painting I intended. I was trying to channel a vibrant sunset with a few clouds.
I mixed six ounces of MasterCast resin. I split it into 4 cups — three cups with two ounces of resin and one cup of one ounce of resin. The one ounce cup was colored with Resin Obsession opaque white and 1/2 teaspoon of acetone. The other cups were colored with Resin Obsession opaque red, opaque orange and opaque magenta. The orange ended up being brighter than I wanted so I added in Resin Obsession opaque black which made it turn brown. Ugh. To save it as best as I could, I put in half a teaspoon of Krylon Metallic gold spray paint, which turned the resin bronze.
I poured each color as a direct pour onto a 12 inch square ceramic white tile.
I used my stirring utensil to bring the colors together and cover the entire tile. Lastly, I poured white resin onto the tile as a direct pour. I drew my stick through a couple of spots to see if I liked that as well.
The final straw for this painting was that my heat gun died right as I turned it on for this painting. Drat.
(Ignore the horizontal line going across the center of the center of the picture. It’s the reflection of the paper I was using to keep glare off the surface.)
So I was happy to see that I got some cells in the white resin without needing my heat gun. Overall though, the colors are weird at best.
So maybe I would have liked this better with the orange resin. Or maybe not. Who knows.
Have you ever had a painting that went wrong that you loved later?
