How to Make a Resin Flow Art Piece

 

resin flow art

Resin flow painting is a revolutionary form of paint art technique which makes use of the unique properties of liquid oil paint to create an original and creative design. In resin flow painting, thin layers of clear resin are brushed over a prepared solid base medium, producing a colourful, textured work of art with limitless potential for personalisation. The main difference between this technique and paint brush drawing is that in the latter, the painter applies a brush stroke to create an image whereas in the former, he or she applies a liquid paint directly. The result is that the process leaves the final artwork with a rich texture and wonderful paint details, as well as having a texture and colour that can't be achieved by any other means. This article attempts to give a few pointers on how to make a good resin flow painting.

The very first step is to prepare your resin flow painting area. For best results you should have a dedicated work area that is well suited to the project you intend to create. It must, however, have adequate ventilation, be non-fatigued, and able to withstand high temperature fluctuations. Next you should create a mould or 'mold' of your desired shape. A small amount of polyurethane foam will suffice; if you wish you may also create a 'spout' for the paint to drip into, using a nozzle to direct the spray into the mould.

Next you should prepare the required number of small plastic cups. You should have enough of these cups to allow you to pour about half a pint of coloured paint into the mould or mold. Of course, this is not an exact science; you may choose to vary the number of coats of paint in each small plastic cup, depending on how fast you want the artwork to dry. You may also decide to add a small amount of heat to help the acrylic paint dry faster.

After you have made all of your necessary preparation work, you are ready to actually create the resin flow art masterpiece. First you should carefully prepare a plain tray to use as a base on which to put the acrylic paints. Next you should make two or three incisions in the top of the tray where you intend to create channels where the colour palette will be poured. As an alternative to the channeled painting you may also choose to create the shapes of the artwork using the small plastic cups.

Once the resin has completely dried, it will be time to remove it from the molds. If you have chosen to create a painted, stencil like design, then you will have to carefully wipe away all of the paint that was previously added. This process should be performed very carefully and care should be taken to ensure there are no residual traces of paint in your final end result. Once the paint is removed from the molds you can safely scrape off the dried paint from the mold and allow it to dry. The resin flow art that you created will look like it was professionally crafted without having to use your imagination.

When you are learning how to create resin art, it is important to remember to clean and sanitize your supplies. It is always recommended that after the resin is applied that you use a clear, non-acetone, non-sudsy, anti-tarnish paint cleaner for the equipment you are using. These types of cleaners will not affect the quality of the end result. The cleaning process should also include a quick wipe down of the equipment with a non-abrasive cloth. Wipe down the equipment again and then rinse it off thoroughly to prevent any oils from contaminating your new artwork.

In learning how to create resin flow art you will learn the techniques of moldmaking. Mold making includes three main parts: the mold, the molds, and the resin. The first step in moldmaking is to choose the right mold for your project. There are a few guidelines that can help you in this department. If you are making molds for resins then the molds that come with resin flow artwork kits will work. If you are new to the field of moldmaking then you will want to follow the guidelines found in the Mold Making Manual.

Resin flow artwork kits come with a manual that describes the proper procedures in making a mold of your own. This manual can also be very helpful when instructing other artists how to make their own mold. You will also want to read all of the included instructions carefully. The last step in how to make a mold is to carefully pour the resin into your molds. This process will depend on the type of material that you have chosen to use as well as the mold that you have chosen to build your creation. Once your resin is completely poured it will harden into the perfect shape.
