Resin painting techniques #83

I wanted to try painting again with acetone as the catalyst for cells, but this time on a black background.  Since painting #72 wasn’t one that I liked because it ended up uneven, I’m using that as the basis for this painting.

I mixed six ounces of MasterCast resin and split it into 4 cups.  Two cups got two ounces of resin each and colored with Resin Obsession opaque black and Resin Obsession opaque red respectively.  The third cup got an ounce and a half of resin colored with Resin Obsession opaque white pigment and a few drops of commercial grade acetone.  The remaining resin was colored with Krylon gold metallic paint.

I covered the tile with the black and red resin in a direct pour.

Once everything was covered, I added the white and gold resin.

I used my heat gun to feather the white resin.  I added in more dots of white resin later and used the heat gun again.

This redo is definitely better.  Although I have no idea where all the red resin went.  I especially like the ‘skull’ in the middle left.

Some really neat lacing going on here.  Of all the solvents I have worked with, acetone is my favorite for lacing and cells.

What has been your experience using acetone?
