In order to create impressive resin art, you need some epoxy resin art supplies. With the following list we want to give you an overview of the products you will need to 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 casting 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.

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.

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 your surface is not perfectly level, the resin will simply run off of 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. It is not advisable to use porous, i.e. highly absorbent surfaces.
