ART RESIN (The Brand!)

https://www.artresin.co.uk/

I started using resin for my artwork about three years ago, I initially used it to finish off my paintings as it gave a perfect glasslike finish which made the colours 'pop'.  Whilst I was researching which resin to use I found that many artists used Art Resin (the brand!) and although it seemed a little more pricey than others through trial and error of using other brands I found it was the best resin for me.

I love trying different techniques and soon learnt that I could do so many things with Art Resin.  I love the fluidity and randomness of resin.  I began by using just acrylic paint mixed with the resin but then started to add mica powders, resin dyes, glitter and crystals as I found they make amazing textures and effects.

 

Art Resin is versatile, easy to use, non hazardous, non toxic, has no VOCs, low odour and not only does it have a UV stabilizer to protect my work it also is non-yellowing and I love that I can use it safely.  It's also food safe which is really important to me as I make many homewares.
