Resin painting #109

I wish I had an amazing story for this week’s painting, but it’s really pretty straightforward.  I knew I wanted to use black, then flipped a coin to decide on the center color, which ended up being the Resin Obsession orchid.

The painting base is a new 12 inch square white ceramic tile.  I mixed seven ounces and split it amongst four cups.  The first cup got about half the resin and was colored with Resin Obsession opaque black.  The next cup got about 1 1/2 ounces and was colored orchid.  The last two cups were filled with 3/4 and ounce of resin.  One was colored with Resin Obsession opaque white and one drop of dimethicone and the other with Krylon silver metallic spray paint.

I poured the resin on the tile was immediately surprised with how much lighter the orchid resin looks with the white tile behind it.  If I were to do this on a canvas or artboard, I would definitely paint the surface a similar color before pouring the resin.

I added the white resin on top, then finished with the silver resin.  I used a heat gun to push the resin around and accentuate cell formation.

I like this painting better than I thought I would.  In fact, when I first left it, I didn’t care for it, but felt much better about it when I came back the next day.

Does anyone else get on top of their paintings to enjoy them?

There are so many fine details in this painting that I can’t enjoy when I’m only a few inches away.

I like this painting. The colors blend nicely. When I get the guts to try a resin pour, this is the one that I will try.

Katherine, I saw a video where metallic silver spray paint was put into a cup and resi-blast was added. This mix was then placed into a spray bottle. Very interesting results.

I bet is was! It’s been my experience that ResiBlast (along with other dispersion agents) are a little crabby when it comes to putting them through a spray bottle. Did they happen to mention the particular brand of bottle? I have had a hard time with them clogging easily.

I did a pour recently and added my resin to my paint mix. The problem I’m having is that I have some areas that are still wet from the resin, and it leaves a sticky or tacky area. How do I fix that. Need help.

It might be that the paint attracted too much water to the resin which is keeping it from curing completely. You will need to recoat with a fresh layer of resin.
