I love whale and I love mermaid, and that’s why I am trying all kind of combination trying to put them both together.
Inspired by some amazing artists on the internet, I found this perfect picture for me to paint. (Since I am very new to the resin art and I did not want to paint fishes like everyone else but some kind of wonderland, most of my resin art works are inspired by amazing artist out there on Pinterest. By studying their artwork and painting on the resin as practice, I slowly figure out how I could cut the picture into layers and what order I should paint first, which eventually help me to create my own art. 🙂 )
This particular artwork could be displayed horizontally or vertically. I personally love the vertical way, as if they were diving into deep blue sea and something great is waiting ahead of them.
I am not a professional artist, but more like an impulsive one. I love to experiment various art depends on where my mood takes me. My artworks is often one time only art, and I do not take request for order. Mostly because I enjoy taking my time trying to make my artwork comes to life, and I believe the artwork can preserve the energy of the artist especially when they are doing something they love. And that’s why I am only painting something I love. And I will stop doing it when that feeling is gone.
If you wonder how resin art is done like I was couple months ago. It’s definitely a complicated process. Let’s just said that it’s way more complicated art then my comfortable 2D or digital art. While 2D art starts with what you want to emphasize first and work your way back, resin art require you to think ahead before you pour your very first layer of resin. You need to reverse your thinking of 2D art and figure out what you want as background instead of foreground. Each layer of resin takes 12 hours to cure, and you have to hope there’s no cat or dog or debris decide to pay it a visit during process of curing. The paint is hard to stick on the surface, just imagining trying to paint on the glass. And different opacity of paint would decide how 3D the object is going to look. Hope this will help you do all the math. Each layer literally takes a day to finish. XD
At the end, not only I hope you will enjoy this artwork, I also wish you can all find a way to make an impossible dream happens just like I did with this piece of art.
To care for resin:
– Cold water rinse if dirty, wipe with smooth clothes or air dry.
– Avoid place it near extreme temperature (This also means no microwave and no dishwasher please)
– Do not scratch it with sharp edges (such as fingernail or toothpick)
– Though many said that resin art could be used for dry food, I personally would not try so. 😉
