In my last post, I showed you how I created these tiny 2 inch paintings, inspired by Monet.
Here’s what I did with them next!
I put out paper towels on my table and covered them with a large sheet of wax paper.
Then I got some incredible stuff called Art Resin…
After mixing equal amounts of the two-part kit together in a plastic cup, I stirred thoroughly for a couple of minutes with a wooden skewer.
Then I poured the resin directly onto the canvases. Each canvas took about 1 tablespoon of resin.
I smoothed the resin gently over the canvas with the side of the skewer, taking it over the edges. Using the pointed end of the skewer, I popped a few tiny air bubbles in the resin…
And I let them dry overnight. They are super smooth with a thick, glossy finish.
I recycled an old magnetic calendar by cutting it up and gluing squares to the backs of the canvases.
Can’t wait to try more projects with ArtResin! Check out their web site and see all the amazing things you can do with this awesome stuff!
