Resin Workshop

End of Day 1 Session…first pour and dry 12 hours

I have always wanted to try resin painting, so when I saw the advertised workshop, I applied immediately. We were each given a base and after taping the under for protection, we painted two layers of undercoat in our chosen colors, in this case blue, aquamarine, green and yellow as a base for water, waves and sand. Then a layer of glue and sand was poured to create a shore

Next step was to prepare the resin… Resin and Hardener were mixed 1:1 for 3 minutes until well blended. Then a half cup of resin had powdered pigment added. I selected ultramarine, aquamarine and a pearly green color. This was mixed in with a wooden paddle and when the three colors were mixed, they were poured onto the base. We could blend and mix using our gloved fingers. Then white was added in thin lines of pigment and using a hot drier, the paint was ‘blown’ to create waves and splashes.

Clear resin was poured over the sand and the shells and when the white lines were added, the hot drier spread them into foam. My white blew into the aquamarine and lowered the intensity of the color. I redid it and this time it streaked, so its was not easy, but the effect was wonderful.

The finished product then had to dry for 12 hours, overnight, and tomorrow we will add the second wave to create depth and do the second pouring of the resin and finish the work.
