In this video, we’ll teach you how to use ArtResin® epoxy resin.
ArtResin® is a 2-part clear liquid that turns to a rock-hard, glass-like finish when you mix both parts together.
It’s easy to do, and the results are amazing!
So let’s get started.
ArtResin® can work on any medium, so today we’ll be coating this piece: it’s an acrylic painting on a wooden panel.
You’ll want to have ready your:
* scrap paper to catch drips
* stands to hold up your piece
* a level
* painter’s tape
* nitrile gloves
* mixing cups or containers
* a stir stick
* a spreader
* something to cover your piece with to protect it from dust while the resin cures
* and, as an option, an Artist's Torch
To start, tape the underside of your piece to protect it against drips.
Raise your piece up on stands so that it doesn’t stick to the tabletop.
and then you’ll want to make sure that your work is level.
Now, how do you determine how much resin you’ll need?
Our online calculator will do the math for you.
This piece is 16 by 16 inches so that’s about 2 square feet.
Our Starter Kit covers 8 square feet so I’ll only need to mix up a quarter of it -- 4 ounces from this bottle, and an equal amount 4 ounces from the other.
The ratio is 1 to 1 so you can visually measure the amount you need.
Stir for 3 minutes, scraping the sides and bottom to make sure you get everything mixed thoroughly
Now for the fun part.
Pour the ArtResin® mixture right onto your work… and spread it out! Our reusable jagged spreaders are great for this.
It’s totally fine if the resin runs over the sides. We’ll show you how to finish the edges in a moment.
Next let’s take care of any bubbles.
ArtResin® is great because many of the bubbles pop on their own.
You can blow on the stubborn ones,
or use an Artist's Torch to speed up the process. You can actually see them popping in front of your eyes.
Once that’s complete, you can spread the resin on the edges with a spreader, or with your gloved hand.
If you don’t want to coat the sides you can just spread it neatly on top.
So you have about 45 minutes to play with the resin.
After that, it starts to cure and will continue to cure for the next 24 hours.
So cover it up with a cardboard box and wait patiently!
It’s the next day. Let’s see how it looks!
Amazing, it looks and feels like glass--only much less fragile!
Try it out on your photos, paintings, woodworking, mixed media, sculpture, glass, encaustic, drawings, jewelry, crafts,
anything you can imagine!
