Resin painting #97

dimethicone to get resin cells

I decided to try another week with dimethicone to get resin cells.  Resin painting #22 finally made its way to the top fo the pile for a do-over and I decided to work with those colors again for this painting. I mixed seven ounces of resin.  I pulled 3/4 of an ounce out each and… Read more »

Resin painting #96

resin painting white cells

This week I jumped into resin painting with dimethicone to make cells. I picked up a bottle of ‘hair smoothing’ serum from the grocery store that included dimethicone as an ingredient. I mixed 7 ounces of resin to paint over resin painting #21. The first four ounces of resin I colored with Resin Obsession opaque… Read more »

four color direct pour resin painting

I did a direct resin pour painting with four colors this week. (Five if you include the white.) The colors are a little bright and funky and may not suit all eyeballs. Consider yourself warned. Many thanks to Ilene W. for inspiring me to not paint with so much white this week. She left a… Read more »

Resin painting #94

resin painting direct pour teal purple white

In my quest of being thrifty and non-wasteful, I’m afraid I didn’t create the best painting this week. I decided painting #68 needed a do-over and I am frustrated with myself that I let it dictate how I poured this week’s painting. When I do a do-over with a white base, I need to either… Read more »

Resin painting #93

resin painting direct pour study

I’m not sure if I’m trying to be thrifty or trying to add a layer of ‘challenge’ to my resin painting, but I’m insisting on painting over ones I don’t care for. Painting #62 is the base for this one, and I decided to recreate a resin painting white negative space direct pour with the… Read more »

Resin painting #92 I wanted to practice more with swipes and adding acetone to colors this week.  Painting #59 is the base for this new one. I mixed five ounces of resin.  One-half ounce of resin was put into separate mixing cups and the remaining resin was colored with Resin Obsession opaque purple.  For the… Read more »

Resin painting #91 Since I didn’t like painting #88, I thought I would try for the ‘third time is a charm’ and made it the base of this week’s painting. I mixed five ounces of resin.  Two each were colored with Resin Obsession opaque magenta and Resin Obsession opaque purple plus a 1/2 tablespoon of… Read more »

Resin painting #90

resin painting swipe direct pour

Resin painting #90 I started this painting with the intention of doing a resin swipe.  While I did a couple of swipes, it morphed into me pushing resin over itself with a heat gun. Here’s how it started: I painted over my resin swipe painting from last week.  I mixed six ounces of resin and applied… Read more »

Resin painting #89

resin painting second layer

Resin painting #89 In my efforts to improve some of my prior paintings, I took painting 54 and decided to add a second layer.  I liked this painting, but didn’t like how the gold took over the entire surface.  I thought I could add a second layer to give it contrasting colors. I mixed five… Read more »

Resin painting #88

resin pour painting

Resin painting #88 It was many years ago, back in my college days, that I would trim my own bangs as a way to save money.  On one such occasion, my boyfriend, who turned into my husband, had to take the scissors away from me in an attempt to keep me from making a bad… Read more »
