Ever noticed how your acrylic pour fluid art loses its luster after it dries? Those vibrant colors and stark contrasts you initially fell in love with dull down and seem less striking. But don't let that dishearten you – I'm about to share a simple yet incredibly effective method to bring back that 'just poured' look to your art.

Step-By-Step Guide to Epoxy Coating

Measuring for Perfection

To kick things off, grab your Supergloss epoxy resin. This is the hero product that's going to give you that glass-like finish. First off, we need to measure out the resin – and for Supergloss, a one-to-one ratio does the trick. I've got a small art piece here, roughly a foot and a half by a foot, so three ounces of resin should cover it. However, it never hurts to mix a touch more just in case.

Whisking up a Storm

Confession time: I can be a tad overzealous with my drill mixer. It's easy to get carried away and trap lots of air in the mix, which turns your resin white and foamy. No panic necessary, though – I'll take you through how to fix that up.

Pour it On

Once your resin is mixed, it's time for the magic. Pour that Supergloss goodness over your acrylic art piece. It's like giving your artwork a drink of water after a long drought – those colors and lines will jump right back out at you, as bold and beautiful as the day you painted them.

Patience and a Light Touch

When dealing with those pesky air bubbles (especially after a drill-induced frenzy), resist the urge to torch excessively. Instead, arm yourself with patience and a lighter touch. Torch the resin in several passes, allowing time in between for the resin to settle. You'll watch as the white fades and those bubbles bid farewell, leaving you with clarity that rivals the transparency of glass.

The Final Reveal

After those final touches and patience, you'll have a piece that's not just coated, but revitalized and rejuvenated. The result is a stunning, professional-grade finish that echoes the very essence of your original creation.

"The key to unlocking the beauty in your acrylic art is not just the medium itself, but what you do with it after."
