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?
