How to Make Epoxy Resin Art – Create Stunning Home Decorations
If you are looking for a great way to decorate your home or even improve the curb appeal of your front walk, epoxy resin art may be for you. Epoxy resins have been around since the 1970s but only recently have they become popular for DIY projects like signs and art. The key to epoxy resin art is that it can resist harsh weather conditions and is also non-toxic. Here we will look at how you can make epoxy resin art.
How to Make Epoxy Resin Art A good painting surface needs more than just sandpaper and some elbow grease; it needs an epoxy resin. To make a good paint/art surface you will want to mix up one gallon of paint with eight ounces of water per gallon of resin. Simply mixing these two chemicals together produces a chemical compound, which reacts by creating bubbles. The more bubbles you create, the more durable your painting surface will be. Another ingredient necessary to make your epoxy resin art work is latex; this can be bought at most any art supply store or directly from the manufacturer of the product.
How to Make Epoxy Resin Art Once you have your ingredients and your resin art ready to go, you will simply need to mix up eight to ten gallons of paint with your acrylic paint. Use a container with a lid to keep the paint from spattering all over the floor, and then let it sit overnight. The next day you will rinse off the paint and then allow it to dry overnight. Then you are ready to apply your epoxy resin art.
