Resin painting #98

I started this painting with the idea that it would be a negative space pour.  Is it just me or do you find you have a hard time putting down the resin cup?

Painting #37 was the lucky do-over painting this week.  I mixed seven ounces of resin.  I put 3/4 of an ounce each into three cups and colored as follows:  Resin Obsession opaque white plus a drop of dimethicone, Resin Obsession opaque teal with a drop of dimethicone and 1/2 teaspoon Krylon silver metallic spray paint.  The remaining resin was colored with Resin Obsession opaque black.

I covered the entire tile with the black resin, then applied each color as a direct pour.  The plan was to keep the resin in the center of the tile, but I couldn’t help myself.  I had resin and there was space and I wanted to be sure I got a resin painting with cells.  LOL.

I like this a lot.  You can see a smidge of the old painting underneath, but it somehow works.  At least for me.

I was worried adding dimethicone to the white and teal would be too much, but somehow it worked.  The silver paint laces all on its own and I like how the silver pigments collect in interesting lines.

I made a point to pour the colors where the white and teal didn’t overlap, but I would sometimes pour a little silver on top.  I really like this color combination.

What is your favorite color combination for resin painting?

I have 16 tables, each 30” sq.
This is for a non profit org in Hillsboro va.
The tables have a Formica top and a 1.5”
Plastic apron. One table was painted with acrylic paint. We plan on using paint and collage. I purchased one sample set and the 2 parts making a gallon. Do you think the gallon will adequately cover one table?

I thought that silcone/dimethicone and resin do not play well with each other. Have you used this in other paintings or is this the first one? I love how this turned out and I am new to resin. Thank you for sharing this!!
