HOW TO USE POURING RESIN
PREP YOU AREA AND SUPPLIES
Generally, pouring can get a little messy, so putting down a plastic drop sheet is recommended! A great tip: raise your canvas using plastic cups so the paint has something to drop off of.
MIX POURING RESIN AND FUSION MINERAL PAINT
First, pour some pouring resin into a cup.
Then, add a couple of drops of Fusion Mineral Paint. Think of it as tinting the resin. You don’t want to use more than 10% paint to resin, so as not to slow down the flow of the resin.
We’ve chosen to add Cell Enhancer to each paint cup for increased separation. Create a second cup of Casement without Cell Enhancer and mark it. This Casement will be used at the end to fill out the background edges.
Choose as many colours as you wish, contrasting and pops of colour are always recommended!
Pour each individual colour in a swirly pattern one at a time onto your canvas.
Continue pouring, overlapping some of the colours.
When all of the individual colours have been poured, pour the Casement marked without the Cell Enhancer on the edges of the canvas to cover any missed surface.
SPREAD THE CELL ENHANCER
Once all the product has been poured, take a stick and slide over the paint left to right and then top to bottom. In this case you can see the Cell Enhancer taking effect in the circular formations.
IT’S TIME TO TILT AND GET MESSY!
Now you want to tilt the canvas to bring the paint off the edges and create any patterns you desire. Continue by tilting and pouring out any extra paint on your canvas.
DRY & DISPLAY
Let your piece dry for 12-24 hours and then it’s ready to be displayed!
In the areas where there’s cell enhancer, you may see a shiny area. That will remain shiny unless you take a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol to remove the excess cell enhancer.
