Resin painting techniques #85

I wasn’t sure what I was going to paint this week, but found I was inspired by another artist’s color combination on Instagram.

My painting surface is a 12 inch square ceramic white tile.  I mixed five ounces of MasterCast resin.  Two ounces each went into two cups, the remaining ounce split 2/3 and 1/3 into two more cups.  The two large cups of resin were colored with Resin Obsession opaque black and a “pepto bismol pink” latex paint sample I reclaimed from the dump.  The other two cups were colored with Resin Obsession opaque white with a quarter teaspoon of acetone and the other cup with ResiMetals gold lustre.

I covered the tile with the black and pink resin first, using my stir stick to blend the edges as necessary.

Next, I added the white resin and used a heat gun to get it to move.

I applied the gold lustre at the end as an accent.

I like it, but I don’t love it.  Mostly because I think it’s way too much pink.  I couldn’t get any cells either no matter how hard I tried.

I like this weird phenomenon of how the gold lustre sank in the painting.  Obviously the density of the latex paint is affecting things here.

I think I want to try this color combo again, but with a lot more white.

What do you think?

Thank you for your kind word and for following me on Instagram. I don’t know if you remember that I have sent you a note once saying how YOU inspire me as a business woman! I love your piece.

I always reserve a little of my metals in Resin for the end. I find they tend to blend into (in a dirty pour) or sink into other paints. If I want them to show up I apply them at the very end.

I think it’s gorgeous! Not sure how it would be best displayed, but the right way could look spectacular.
