Resin painting 114

resin painting black white silver

Because I had so much fun with last week’s painting, I decided to do another one this week using a plastic juicer.  I decided this painting will also be an opportunity to cover up painting 108. Resin formula I mixed 6 ounces of resin, then poured off one ounce into two separate cups and colored… Read more »

resin painting with a juicer

resin painting with a juicer

You should not expect anything exciting from this week’s painting.  I wanted to try a ‘juicer’ to apply the resin, so I didn’t make anything really complicated. Uh juicer?  I thought water wasn’t good for resin.  It’s not, but I found this dandy plastic juicer at the dollar store and thought I would give it… Read more »

resin painting 112

I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but this isn’t exactly the picture I had in my head about how this painting would turn out.  I think that’s one of our problems as artists in why we can’t (or at least I can’t) appreciate our own work sometimes.  More on this in a minute. Resin formula… Read more »

It looks like the third time is a charm.  🙂 Resin formula After ruining painting 107, I decided it would get a do-over this week.  I wanted plenty of resin, so I mixed eight ounces this time.  I separated off an ounce to mix with Resin Obsession opaque white pigment and an ounce to mix… Read more »

Resin painting #110

Let me say right away that I had nothing to do with these color choices.  It was not my idea to do a bright colors resin painting. I wanted to spend Mother’s Day painting pottery with my boys (ages 10 to 12).  When I couldn’t get anyone to do that with me, I decided to… Read more »

Resin painting #109

pink black white resin painting with cells

Resin forumla The painting base is a new 12 inch square white ceramic tile. … Read more »

Resin painting #108

The color wheel inspired this week’s resin painting. Seriously.  In packing resin supplies for my resin class last weekend, I found my favorite color wheel which had been missing for months. I love how I can turn the wheel and it give me ideas of complimentary colors along with tints, tones and shades.  For this… Read more »

Resin painting #107

resin painting pearl ex powders

I’m going to cut to the chase on this one.  This is one of the ugliest paintings I have created in awhile. My goal was to add some Pearl Ex metallic colors in an additional layer on painting #93 to give it some more depth. What happened is that the colors came in too dark… Read more »

resin painting 106

Since the last couple of paintings worked well for me by having something to focus on, I was all ears when someone asked me to do a portrait.  Okay, it was my mother joking that I should do one of her cat, but hey, I’m up for it. Here’s a recent picture of her (the… Read more »

Resin painting #105

resin painting black orange copper

The hardest thing about this week’s painting was getting it photographed.  I suppose that’s a good problem to have. I mixed six ounces of resin to recoat painting #103.  After pulling out 2/3 of an ounce of resin (times three) into three small mixing cups, I colored what was left with Resin Obsession opaque black… Read more »
