Working with Art Resin

IMG_1071.JPG

I started using Art Resin for my solo show at the Jo Hay Open Studio this spring. In the process I encountered many mishaps such as dust particles, spilling over the edges, sticky resin, resin seeping into the photograph and bubbles.

Meanwhile I have improved my technique and the process is fun and gives stunning results. ART RESIN asked me to show how I work with this media. I made a short video showing the process and have included a few photos to show the steps.

Enjoy!
