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! ArtResin: Made By Artists For Artists
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. . Gorgeous!
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! ArtResin: Made By Artists For Artists
I mean, really, friends ... How incredibly satisfying is this to watch? Crystal clear ... Luxurious ... Velvety ... Sumptuous ... ArtResin. ... sigh ... Thanks to artist @fionadebell for the slo-mo goodness 💕
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”. . Scroll through to see the amazing dimension in her final piece!
How fun is this geode inspired table made by Parisian artist @hunaiza.n.saleem? Complete with shells, crystals, gems and quartz, it reminds me of the ocean 😊
Q: How Do I Remove Epoxy Resin Drips? A: The best way to deal with drips is to prevent them from happening in the first place! To do this, take a piece of painter’s tape and run it along the underside of your piece to collect drips as they’re forming. When the resin is dry to the touch ( by the 24hr mark ) you can pull the tape off and the cured drips will come off right along with it. Also, as you are working you can use a gloved hand or a brush to smooth the drips out as you go. If you do have cured drips on your artwork,the best way to remove them is with a Dremel tool or an electric sander. ArtResin: Made By Artists For Artists
Stop what you’re doing, sit back for a moment, and take in the colourful explosion that is alcohol ink dancing in resin. Absolutely hypnotic. . Thanks @madebykeeper for sharing the magic!
