Resin Art Ideas for Beginners

If you are new to working with resin, there is so much inspiration online to get you started. In this article, we are just going through a few popular art ideas that you can try as well. But make sure that you take the proper safety precautions such as using goggles, masks and gloves before you start working.

You can find quality resin at the website. If you already have something in mind to make, you can contact the site for any clarifications. You can create textured art using a wood art panel and drywall compound. You will need a small spatula, paintbrushes, and a heat gun or an artist torch. Disposal gloves or nitrile gloves can be used. The latter will give you more protection. You need a container with measurements so you can mix the proper volumes. You can use a stir stick or even a Popsicle stick to mix the resin mixture. A thick layer of drywall can be added to the front and sides of the panel. And once you are sure of the design, you can use the handle of the paintbrush to etch it on the soft drywall compound layer. You can colour it the way you wish and once the paint and everything is dry, the gaps can be filled in by coloured, clear or tinted resin. A heat gun will remove any air bubbles from the resin. Also, thoroughly mixing the resin mixture will also get rid of most of the bubbles.

If you are up for a challenge, you can try pointillism art where you create an image out of hundreds of dots. Get a wood panel and trace or sketch the design you want on it. You can use a resin calculator to find out how much resin to use. You can apply the resin mixture evenly onto the front and sides of the panel. You can either use gloved hands or a foam brush. You will have about 45 minutes to work with this artpiece until the resin starts to thicken. Bubbles can be removed using a heat gun. And any bubbles that are left can be popped using a toothpick. Hold the panel under a light source so that you can spot all the bubbles.

Ocean art is a popular resin art item that can be seen in many places. You need to mix the resin and pour it into cups that have tints of the ocean. Some examples are dark blue, light blue, turquoise, emerald green, white, black and sand colour. You can add any colours that you like. More blue and green shades will be required compared to sand and white colours. Spread out the sand coloured resin at the edge of a wooden panel and on the opposite edge, pour the darkest blue. The light blue and other colours can be added to the layers in between but make sure there is a separation between the blues and the sand. Into this separation, you need to drop a thin line of white. You can add more lines if you wish. You can push this white in and out over the blue part of the panel using a hairdryer.
