💙RESIN COAT on HUGE 36 x 48 Acrylic Pour Painting – Full Resin Tutorial💙


lovely day to you actually it’s not it’s raining again it is December 31st the last day of 2018 Happy New Year’s Eve this painting has dried for several days and actually it’s been more like a week I like it but I don’t like the texture because I put some textural medium under it and I regret it it was just the sandy medium and that just doesn’t work with my style of painting I don’t know why I did it so we’re gonna cover it up with some resin which is why I have my handy-dandy respirator here I have a lot of resin videos and I didn’t wear a respirator and I am NOT saying that that’s why I came down with an autoimmune disease but I did I got chronic hives that lasted for six months it did coincide with me doing a lot of resin but I have been really careful to clean my diet and I’m not gonna mess it up by breathing a bunch of vapors in from resin so I have my respirator and then I’m gonna clean up and get out of here for today let’s do this I like it it’s sort of like that is the surface of the water we’re underneath the water and this is like bubbles that are rising to the surface and there’s some depth you can just see on forever in the background I like it so we’ll try doing a resin coating [Music] respirator I have my mixing cup that has the measurements along the side I have my resin and my partner I would not recommend this brand I would probably go with art resin or something that is meant for art work because some of these tend to yellow and I think this has been on my shelf for about six months and I can tell that it has yellowed a lot since I bought it the brand is Pro marine supply so it’s said that you can use it for our efforts but I will not buy this brand again I’m hoping that since I’m doing a relatively thin layer that you will not be able to see any yellowing mobile to see so I’m gonna have to put the respirator on and the mixing process takes a good 5 minutes so I’ll probably speed through that process and I’ll not be able to do a lot of walking once I am spreading the resin because again respirator but this is my spreading tool it’s specifically for resin the teeth help to spread it in an even way it is self leveling even though it causes hills and valleys they fill in and it just helps to spread it all around a lot better than some of the other tools I have tried such as putty knives and things I did not clean this off as well as I should have last time and so there are chunks on it but we’ll try to work around that it’s hard to clean resin tools I’ve heard that you can use rubbing alcohol and things like that but I mean you can’t just rinse it off in the sink you can just buy new tools but I really hate wasting plastic products and throwing them in the – without reusing and repurposing so I’m just going to try to make that work the resin and the hardener they always come in two separate containers and you pour exactly equal amounts in your measuring cup which is why you need to have a measuring cup that has the measurement marks on it then you will have a stirring stick and gloves and you will stir it for three to five minutes making sure that it that you’re scraping the sides and really incorporating it all in there as grit as good as you can you pour it onto the canvas and you spread it around they recommend not scraping the size of the container as you pour it out because if you didn’t mix it well then you’re going to get that unmixed epoxy that will not harden as it should here we go I’m talking with the respirator [Music] [Music] [Music] okay I have next step for five minutes now we’re gonna pour it on there and spread it and then oh you I will use my heat gun to pop the air bubbles yeah okay [Music] [Music] I’ve not mixed up enough so I’m going to have to mix up another container fall really quick to do the other side so I did not anticipate how much resin this canvas would need there are mixing charts out there to help you decide square footage-wise how much to accept but I knew that I couldn’t mix up more than what would fit in this cup anyway so I’m just having to do it twice so I’ve set the timer for another 5 minutes and I’m going to mix for five minutes [Music] now I’m going to rub my fingers along the sides and try to spread out the excess resin along the sides [Music] oh oh look at my face as I just used the glare and the lights to assist me in seeing if there were any bald spots I saw that I had coated it pretty well I didn’t see any bald spots lots of the air bubbles though so I’m going to hook up my heat gun and pop those air bubbles all right I’m gonna try to get a good angle for you to see the bubbles popping in the heat gun here a lot of people use torches like the culinary torch and I bought a couple of those but because I’m so messy I kept ruining the torches because I kept getting resin all over them so for some reason I’m more careful with this because it costs a lot of money alright so let’s get a good shot of some air bubbles didn’t happen [Applause] yeah so talked about [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] let me know what you think in the comments like and subscribe click the bell

  1. Beautiful! The resin really took it to another level. Your videos are so informative and instructive. I love watching them.

  2. Hello, did you seal the painting before you put the resin on? I love the finished look and the color pop when resin is applied.

  3. Great informative and fun video. I use venti SB cups and a piece of cardboard cut from a refrigerator box to cover wet resin, then drape some butcher paper over the edges to keep the dust bunnies off. Thank you

  4. „Do as i say, not as i do“ (in the description box) 😂 this could totally be me 😂 The finished painting is awesome 😍🤗

  5. You’re my favorite; I always get a chuckle from your videos! I use a mini grout tool like that to spread my base layer sometimes.

  6. Спасибо, очень интересно. По Вашей рекомендации я нашла авто перевод, даже сделала несколько поправок, чтобы текст звучал более корректно. Я узнала, что Вы не используете силикон! Как это здорово!!! Я занимаюсь со взрослыми учениками классической живописью акрилом и маслом, давно хочу изменить и разнообразить подход в творческом процессе. Раньше преподавала на отделении графического дизайна. А сейчас Вы мой главный учитель!!!! Я очень внимательно смотрю каждый Ваш новый выпуск!! Сейчас готовлю необходимые материалы, с этим у нас есть проблемы, но главное начать. Еще, как к Вам удобно обращаться? Я думаю, у меня появятся вопросы, если позволите, я буду спрашивать. Спасибо, жду новых выпусков.

  7. My very favorite resin is Stone Coat Countertops. They have the countertop epoxy and an Art Coat resin, both are great and have zero VOC's, and has a working time of 45 + mins. Self leveling, non yellowing, and the best UV protection. Also good for up to 475 degrees if your doing trivets, or tile coasters etc. BTW… I love how that painting turned out!

  8. I was surprised that you applied resin one week after the painting was created. I was under the impression that paintings need three weeks to cure before applying a topcoat. Do you typically resin so soon after the painting is created? It would speed up the process if it's not an issue that's for sure!

    Another question: is the temperature in your classroom at least 75F? I want to resin some paintings, but my resin (Pro-marine) states that it needs to be 75-80F, and we do not keep our house that warm.

  9. Do you prep your canvas and anyway before you resin? How do you keep the resin from sagging in the middle and not covering the edges oh, I've had that problem with a few of my pictures so I kind of have this love-hate relationship with resin? Thanks for sharing, much appreciated

  10. Courtney, your art is inspiring, but I hope you'll get some better gloves. Epoxy resin is nothing to take chances with. I'm sorry you got sick. I hope you shake it off.
