Yesterday I was working on a piece that used quite a few colors in the pour. Seven colors in fact! The colors were an inspiration from colors used by another YouTube artist, Annmarie Ridderhof. She uses a lot of earthy colors and they always tend to turn out very nice. The difference is that she is not using resin. I wanted to see what those colors looked like with resin so I did my own little test.
The piece was done as a “dirty pour” and while the results were nice there were quite a few little bubbles in the finished product. I find this to be the case with most resin dirty pours (for me). Its not that big of a deal since all you really need to do is lightly sand the top and then add another coat of resin. Most pieces I do include a second coat of resin or a finished coat.
In the video bellow I show the finished product and a time laps of the piece being created. If you get a chance go out and see what Annmarie is doing and hopefully with all these demos you will get inspired to do this yourself! As always, there is also a list of all the products used in the video with links where to buy.
