Art Resin And Dry Paint
Art resin is actually a two part epoxy resin. First it can coat, paint, fiberglass, fabric, stone, ceramic, and more. Add dimension to your art, uv cured oil, acrylics, paintings, mixed media and much more. Now you can express yourself with Art Resin Art Techniques and create masterpieces that amaze your friends and delight your family.
To apply Art Resin, you need an airbrush. Spray the airbrush over the artwork you want to coat. Use long, even strokes and make sure you cover the entire surface of the piece. You don’t have to worry about bubbles forming while the epoxy cures because they will not – ever. But they can be there if you wish.
There are two resin art techniques you can use to create a stunning effect. The first method uses dry pigment pigments which can either be pigmented in the tube or can be placed on a special decorative tray and then applied with the brush in large, sweeping motion. This results in very light color pigments that are easily blended into the background.
The second technique is much more challenging and results in much more vibrant and intense colors. This second technique involves applying a combination of wet and dry pigment pigments to a glass plate. The mixing and application of the pigments are done by spraying the resin mixture over the painting surface and then allowing it to dry.
You may find that some of your favorite artists use both methods. If you like abstract art, you can easily recreate their styles using the Amazon method. For more traditional scenes, you can use the e.g. blue color from the Amazon e.g., and then gradually add in more colors of blue to the mixture as it cures.
There are many other methods for applying this resin art additive. Many artists like to pour just a small amount directly on their painting surface before painting. Others like to use a funnel or tea spoon to pour the mixture into an air-tight container. The best way to apply the paint is to mix it very gently with a touch of your fingertips until you form a paste. If you have never used this type of liquid epoxy resin before, then it can be a little messy so experiment with different size mugs and spoons until you find one that works best for you.
Once the resin has cured, you will be able to remove the excess paint by scraping the resin off with a knife or nail file. Once you have scraped all the paint off, you will be left with an untouched resin image. This is where you can start to use your newly painted image to create a decorative pattern or embellishments.
After you have finished applying the paint and it has dried, you should always use a cooling device. Since you are working with a highly concentrated resin image, it can take a much longer time to dry than regular paint. Make sure that your heating device is powerful enough to keep the resin image on your painting surface at the proper temperatures. A heat gun works well, but is also a lot more expensive.
Depending on the type of image you are painting with your epoxy resin art, the drying time will vary. Large image paintings may take weeks to completely dry while small, fine art pieces may only take a day or two. As long as you follow the directions included with your resin painting application, the time you need to wait will be based on the type of material and the thickness of the paint you are using.
For UV light protection, always use uv light blocking bags during the application process. The UV light can cause your art resin to fade if it comes into contact with it. Also, avoid rubbing the resin vigorously as this will also cause the resin to flake. You can speed up the drying time by spraying the resin with additional UV light blocking chemicals such as Mylar.
There are also other methods that you can use in order to speed up the drying time, but they can have different affects on the final product. You can experiment with different mixing techniques and different levels of uv curing agents before you decide how to mix your uv curing agent for application. For added speed and protection, you can even use a UV curing protector spray between the layers of a curing agent applied to the surface of the canvas. The thickness of your uv coating will determine how thick your bubbles will be when the finished painting dries. If the bubbles are too thin, they will not help your painting because they are not meant to stand out against the light.
