So a few days ago I mentioned having a go at using resin in my art. Inspired by the lavender smells wafting through my window I painted an abstract piece using acrylic paint.
My daughter carefully collected lavender petals for me and when the painting was completely dry I mixed up a batch of resin and poured it on. Smoothing it out and spreading to the edges. I then placed the lavender petals onto the tacky resin and topped with more resin.
Many errors… Surface not completely level /too much resin/not enough waiting time before applying second layer of resin…
The result is mixed.
I love love the glass like gloss! This is completely dry.
The petals now look like flies have landed in my blooming resin
I cut my finger trying to prize the painting from the cardboard it was sitting on lol!
Lessons learned and I can’t wait to try again 🙂
