I am so happy to have found Art Resin - that gel-like glossy coating that gives artwork a professional finish. A year ago, I had never touched the stuff, but through tutorials and trial and error, I now apply Art Resin as a regular part of my practice. Curious how it works? You can follow the step-by-step guide below, or skip to the video at the bottom to see how I took this recent artwork to the next level with Art Resin:
1. I painted a circular panel with ink and rubbing alcohol per my usual technique:
I then mixed 8 oz of resin with 8 oz of hardener for 3 full minutes to allow the chemical reaction to take place:
Now it's complete! I love how reflective and shiny the resin turned out. This is just the first in a collection I'm working on inspired by Aura Photography in preparation for a solo show this Fall. Stay tuned to see more!
