Resin work offers limitless possibilities in terms of color, structure and the interaction of pigments. Its the ultimate balance between giving up and maintaining control of a medium.
By adding pigments and then tilting the surface to change the flow, you can get amazing luminosity, brilliance and depth. Ideal for depicting marine and freshwater images.
Most of these images were either sketched or photographed and then eventually altered through imagination and manipulating the mixture of the various pigments.
The process involves the mixing of resin and a hardener to make epoxy resin-a solid plastic with a high gloss surface.
The hardening or drying time is short-around 45 minutes to an hour, depending the room temperature. A blow torch is used to further alter the flow and remove air bubbles from the medium.
The process also lends itself to experimenting with various shapes of wooden panels, so you are not as limited to traditional rectangular panels.
