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?
