ArtResin epoxy resin enlivens artwork of any medium.
Easily applied in liquid form, ArtResin quicky cures to a rock hard state with the look of clean, glossy glass. This surface application enriches color, seal in and provides a protective barrier, is heat and water resistant and forms an easy to clean attractive finish.

Do i mix it with anything before pouring it onto the resin? I have experimented with all mediums and i thought pouring coloured ink onto wet resin would work but when it dry’s i get a crater effect from the ink and nothing like a polished watercolour effect. HELP.
I have used ink with resin and did not get craters… strange. Ink has a very cool reaction with resin. You can pour the resin on wet ink, or pout the ink into the resin. Very neat effect!
can we use this art for outdoor purposes.
Q: isn’t there a high risk of fire or explosion using a blowtorch with the resin to hit rid of bubbles? Isn’t the resin flammable?
A: no, the resin isn’t flammable.. is is toxic (fumes) – and corrosive… the worst part of the resin (part B – hardener) is that you get allergic to it over time if it continues to get on your skin.
if you are worried about using a blow torch, get a heat gun! that is what i use. works great. I got one for $19 from the hardware store… gets sticky though
Q: I am trying to photograph my art work and was wondering the epoxy resin finish will effect the photographs since its like glass. Is there anyway for me to avoid the glare or shoud . I photograph before i put the finish on. What do you do ?
A: just try and have ‘area’ light, like a semi cloudy day outside.
professional art photography would have a white tent with light shining on the outsides, with the painting on the insides…
sometimes i find you just need to continue to adjust your lights and the angle of the piece until you get a good shot without glare.
or, if you know how… photograph darker, and adjust levels and colour in photoshop.
awesome stuff going on the art world. Please share your Resin experiences with us!
