  • Q: How Long Should I Wait Before Applying Another Resin Coat?⁣
⁣
A:  There are two methods for applying additional coats: ⁣
⁣
- the first is the speedier method. After you’ve applied your first coat of ArtResin, wait about 3-5 hours until that ArtResin has reached a gel like state. At that point you can pour your second coat on top and the two layers will cure simultaneously, creating a very strong bond.⁣
⁣
- the second method takes little more time, but is nonetheless equally strong at the end. You will pour your first coat of ArtResin and then wait 24 hours until the ArtResin has completely cured. At that point, it’s no longer sticky, and you will need a piece of 80 grit sandpaper to rough up the surface to provide some tooth for that second coat. At that point you can pour your second coat overtop, and again, those layers are going to bond very, very strongly together.⁣
⁣
You can repeat either of these methods as often as you like until you reach the thickness you desire.⁣

  • How incredible is this hand painted guitar by artist @jessicadadiomoff? .
A custom piece, it was painted with scenes of the Na Poli Coast in Kauai and covered in a shiny coat of ArtResin to protect it forever.

Simply gorgeous 💕

  • The colour pink represents compassion, nurturing and love 💕 ⁣
.⁣
Containing the passion and power of red, it is softened by the openness and innocence of white:  the deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits.⁣
.⁣
Pink is a sign of hope, calming and reassuring negative emotional energy. Research has shown that exposure to pink can have a calming effect on the nerves. ⁣
.⁣
Pink can also represent good health, friendship, and feminine energy.⁣
.⁣
Hot pink, bubblegum pink, fuschia, blush, rose, salmon, coral, flamingo, watermelon, magenta ... What’s your favourite shade of pink? 💖

  • Q:  How Can I Avoid Getting Dimples In My ArtResin Surface?

A: Dimples can occur for 3 reasons: 
1) If the temperature fluctuates in the room while the ArtResin is curing during the first 24 hours.  Make sure that the temperature stays stable in the room ( 72-77F or 23-25C ) while your piece cures.

2) If you get some dust particles in your piece.  Make sure you reduce dust in your resin room as much as possible and use a dustcover to protect your piece while it cures.

3) If you overtorch, it can cause dimples and imperfections in your resin.  You only need a quick pass over the resin surface back and forth to release bubbles - always keep the torch moving and don't hold it too close or for too long in one spot.

If you follow these practices, you can avoid getting dimples in your cured resin!

  • We are all in love with these organite pyramids made by resin artist  @yolanda.fernandes.ly⁣
.⁣
Not only do they look stunning, but Yolanda creates them from select minerals, quartz crystals, gold flakes, copper coil, metal flakes and semi-precious stones, all layered in ArtResin, and all carefully chosen for their healing, restorative and regenerative properties.⁣

  • Q: How Do I Get Rid Of Bubbles?⁣
⁣
A:  Without question, the best way to take care of bubbles is with an Artist’s Torch. Whether you use a handheld butane torch or a bigger propane torch for bigger projects, the flame from a torch is hot enough to thin out the resin, allowing bubbles to escape.⁣
It’s your best bet against bubbles every time!⁣
⁣
Some more handy tips:⁣
⁣
- Seal anything that may contain air - like wood or inkjet prints. ⁣
⁣
- Make sure the resin is at least at room temperature. You can give cold resin a warm water bath if you like by placing the unopened resin and hardener bottles in a warm water bath for 20 minutes or so, drying them off thoroughly before you measure and mix.⁣
⁣
- Stir your resin mixture slowly: whipping it will induce more bubbles. ⁣
⁣
- Pour your resin out slowly and pour close to the surface. ⁣
⁣
- Pour in 1/8" layers: if you pour thicker than this, bubbles won’t have a chance to escape or get torched out. ⁣
⁣
- Always use a torch to get rid of bubbles: heat guns just can’t match the heat of a flame.⁣
⁣
If you follow this advice you should have a bubble-free piece everytime!⁣

  • Did you know? 
Once cured, ArtResin is absolutely waterproof and inert, meaning it does not pose a threat to aquatic life - plus, its long lasting clarity means you can create realistic looking lures that will last!

@johnstonlurecompany uses plastic injected molds, airbrushes them, and brushes on a coat of glossy ArtResin!! .
We love how this looks!

  • ArtResin was designed as a surface coating as opposed to a casting resin. It was designed for thin applications and naturally self-levels to about 1/8". As long as you pour in 1/8" layers, you can go as thick as you like. 
The reason we recommend this thickness is two-fold: first, it allows the bubbles to escape properly, and second, it avoids any excessive overheating of the resin. 
So for best results always pour in a 1/8" layer, and you’re good to go! 💡TIP: Keep in mind that ArtResin's 72 hr cure time is based on a 1/8" layer, so if you do pour thicker it may take longer to cure.

  • Always fascinating to see all the different applications and interpretations of ArtResin in each and every one of our artists’ work.
.
Case in point - artist @tanya who carefully manipulated oil paint in layers of resin to create “floaters”. .
