Tips and Tricks
Here are some tips to help you take your ocean-inspired resin art to the next level:
- Coloring Resin with Pigment Paste: Start by coloring your clear resin with our DIY resin pigment paste, which you can make using MEYSPRING White Pearl Mica Powder and Resin Part A. Our formula is ocean-artist-approved and guarantees excellent results. First, add a small amount of epoxy pigment paste and stir until it is completely incorporated. Then, you can add more gradually until you achieve the desired opacity and intensity.
- How to pour Resin Waves: First pour a layer of clear resin where you want your lacing and foam effect, then add the white-colored resin next to the transparent resin. Pour less if you wish to create delicate waves or more if you want a prominent frothy look. You can then use a heat gun and torch to move the white-colored resin around and make the desired wave effect.
- Applying Heat: Avoid staying in one spot too long with heat or a flame. This can cause the resin to burn, turn yellow, and feather.
- Allowing Cells to Develop: Always allow the resin to sit for a few minutes before applying more heat if needed, and you’ll see how cells will start to develop on their own.
