Hello everyone, I have just discovered the world of ‘Resin Art’. So I had a hunt for some moulds I could try that fitted in with the Seaside Girl Collection. This is what developed. Firstly I got curious – what would this resin work in, so I just made up a cupful and gathered a variety of mould types.

I tried it in silicone and clear soft moulds, plastic dish and a sticky tape backed/acetate frame free form. They all worked, some just removed easier.

My first batch I just used the clear resin. Once it was cured I coated them with gesso thinking it would paint easier – I found that the wet ink was lifting the gesso in places. So, next I tried colouring the resin by adding a coloured alcohol ink (white). This worked better with the painting – so now I know.

I cut a piece of cardboard 4″ x 5″ and sealed it with a coating of gesso on both sides. I sealed the paper as well (next time I would use a matte) then glued it onto the backing board with glue.

I painted more moulds than I needed with the alcohol inks. I used a few coats of different colours and the inks blended well onto the resin. The components I used for this project. Once I got this far it was just a matter of gluing it all together. I added some art stones and modelling paste to finish it off. The finished project – With the resin pieces, I thought that this idea of a ‘hanging tag’ could be a nice gift.
