Choosing Your Canvas: Why Wood?

Here's why a wood panel is preferred over canvas for resin artwork. 

As a resin artist, I've developed a fondness for wood panels over traditional canvases. They’re not just robust but provide the perfect support for the weight of the resin, ensuring your artwork remains pristine and warp-free.

Choosing Your Canvas: Why Wood?

Plus, a primed wood panel spray-painted with flat black acts as a vibrant stage for your pigments to shine. Sure, you could opt for white, but I find that a black base amplifies the colors.

But, of course, the beauty of art is in its diversity—feel free to play around with different hues to find your signature style.he Arsenal of Artistry

My go-to for the whitest whites in ocean crests is an epoxy paste from Just Resin, a superb product from Australia crafted explicitly for use within resin.

Accompanying this star of the show are the shimmering black diamond mica powders—these little gems add a captivating depth to your seascape and are available right at the Epoxy Resin Store. We'll take a closer peek at these beauties soon.

When I create, be it a serene seascape or a wild abstract, I love to introduce a symphony of hues. Limiting to one or two feels too constrained for my taste.

Today, our palette consists of five mesmerizing shades: white for the foam, deep sea blue, bora bora, blue diamond, Caribbean blue, and a touch of white diamond effect for that iridescent charm.

The Backbone of Resin Art - Premium Clear Epoxy

Crafting with resin is nothing short of a science blended with the freedom of art. For a smooth experience, we turn to premium clear epoxy, with its simple one-to-one ratio mix—an ever-reliable choice.

You get a generous window of 35 to 45 minutes of work time, but here's my tip: choose your colors first, then mix your resin. Trust me, it saves precious moments.

When you're gearing up to mix, pick a large container marked in ounces—we're about precision here. We’re looking at 48oz for our 36 x 36 panel, just to give us a safe margin.

Always introduce the hardener (part B) before the resin (part A) and stir with intention, not haste. Avoid a poor cure by stirring thoroughly for about three minutes—this can make or break the final outcome.

Preparing the Panel: A Resin Artist's Ritual

Before coloring, priming the board is required to lay down the red carpet for your pigments. A thin layer serves as a playground, allowing colors to dance and mingle effortlessly.

And when it comes to messy hands? Double glove! Once the board is primed, just peel off the top layer and voilà—an instant clean slate.

The Dance of Pigments

Now, imagine your wood panel as an ocean waiting for its waves. We introduce the pigments, each color making its grand entrance, guided by the warmth of a heat gun.

Not to be mistaken for a hairdryer, the heat gun gently persuades the colors to flow, blend, and create patterns that speak the language of the sea's beauty. 

Once the board is primed

Begin with the deep sea blue, pour, alternate, and let the bora bora ribbon through. Mild moves with the heat gun breathe life into the composition, weaving shades and creating natural gradients. Hold back no imagination here—let your creativity lead.

As for the whites, they bring the essence of foam and froth. The titanium white epoxy paste packs a punch against the subtle sheen of the white diamond mica, delivering a sparkling serenade of the ocean's playful nature.

Finishing Touches: Bubble Banishing and Edges

Last but not least, run fingers around the edges for a smooth finish and banish any renegade bubbles with a torch. Maintain a light hand—scorching is not on today’s art menu.

Even now, the concoction of resin and pigments waltzes, creating little cells, undulating patterns testament to the magic of resin painting.

And there you have it, a serene epoxy pour seascape painting, a fragment of the ocean's soul encapsulated on a wooden canvas. It's a dazzling display of what the premium clear epoxy and a dash of creativity can achieve.

I hope this guide has inspired you to take the plunge and put your own spin on resin painting.
