Resin painting techniques #84
I decided to take this week to get ‘back to basics’. I made a point to only choose three colors that would blend and compliment each other well: black, white and silver. I covered up painting #67 for this one.
I mixed five ounces of MasterCast resin and split it into 3 cups. Half of the resin was colored with Resin Obsession opaque black. A third was colored with Resin Obsession opaque white and the remaining resin was colored with Krylon silver foil paint. Several drops of acetone was added to the white resin.
I poured the resin on as a direct pour starting with the black, then the white and ended with the silver. With the little bit of resin I had in each cup at the end, I made two ‘puddle pours’ (that look like eyes). As luck would have it, my heat gun died right as I started using it, so I didn’t get to apply hardly any heat.
While I was disappointed the heat gun didn’t work for this painting, I think it turned out well. (Short of the where the resin pulled away at the sides.) Even without heat, the acetone was able to produce lacing in the white.
This is one of those paintings where I think it’s prettier the closer you get to it. It’s a chance to appreciate all the layers and tones of colors.
What do you think?
