Resin Art Supplies – What you need for Resin Painting

 

In order to create impressive art, you need some resin art supplies. With the following list we want to give you an overview of the supplies you need, so that you can create your own stunning resin painting as soon as possible and at a reasonable price.

 

 

 

What is Resin?

The definition of resin means synthetic resin, also called epoxy. Epoxy is a polymer compound with two components: First the resin and then the hardener. If these two components are mixed together in the correct ratio, the castable resin mixture is formed, which hardens after a certain time. Epoxy resin is incredibly versatile. In addition to art for paintings, jewelry and sculptures, resin is also widely used in model making, kitchen countertops and flooring.

What is Resin Art?

Resin Art therefore means nothing other than art made of resin in all its forms: This may be paintings made of cast synthetic resin, special moulds or the creation of geodes.

 

 

Which Resin Art Supplies do I need for Casting with Epoxy Resin?

For the resin technique you will need additional resin art supplies in addition to the actual resin depending on the desired technique. We have started to search for you so that we can compile a list with the most important products.

Color Pigments and liquid Colors

Resin can be colored with various colors and color pigments. Not all colors are suitable for resin, as water-based products won’t work with epoxy. You should also make sure that you do not add too much color to the resign, otherwise it will quickly become tough and can no longer be processed optimally. We have compiled a list of colors suitable for synthetic resin.

Painting Grounds

You can pour resin on all surfaces. However, it is advisable to pour on firm and straight surfaces, as resin is thin and if not in balance flows from the painting surface. Larger canvases are less suitable because the weight in the middle creates a hollow. Small canvases can be reinforced with a cardboard and thus also be poured. You should also not use porous, i.e. highly absorbent surfaces.

Safety

You should work with resin in a room that is as well ventilated as possible. If this is not possible, we recommend a respirator for your health. You should also always pay attention to wearing high-quality nitrile gloves, as contact with liquid epoxy can trigger allergic reactions.

 

Safety Works Multi-Purpose Respirator
  • As toxic fumes can be produced when processing resin, we recommend that you wear a respirator mask when processing resin in rooms.
