ADELAIDE BEADS: Resin Artwork Abstract Peacock Feather Wall Art


Welcome an Adelaide Beads Tutorial Using MDF board Nail wood off-cuts into one side of the MDF This stops the wood from warping from the paint Two Part Clear Epoxy Resin Paint Gesso or Acrylic Paint onto the board to seal it Mix the 2:1 Epoxy resin Using pop sticks Stir for 3 minutes We use an egg timer Make sure the resin is combined well, scrapping the sides and bottom to combine it. Add black ink to colour one portion Mix to incorporate the dye Wipe up any unmixed resin that spills on the canvas board I then added powder dye to this portion of Clear epoxy resin and stirred it in. Use painters tape around the edge of the canvas I used a smaller portion of epoxy resin and coloured it with purple powder dye I poured the black in resin first In a line fashion vertical to the canvas Then the gold powder dye resin, over lapping slightly Then I poured the purple powder dye resin between Let it spread Mix more two part epoxy resin Stir it I added Teal ink dye We added more , as it was still too translucent Mix it into the resin well I poured a little in the gold paint, to make a circle pattern I poured the rest of the teal around the perimeter and between the other colours We tilted the canvas up to spread the resin slightly First in one direction Then the other. I used my gloved hand to spread the paint To fill in the gaps. The resin will continue to spread and move for a couple of hours until it sets We hit it with a heat gun and a flame to burst air bubbles that come to the surface Once the resin has set and cured wipe up any drips as before it sets and remove the painters tape before it cures, after about two hours or so. We attached some hooks to the back from the hardware store, and hung it on the wall. Thanks for watching Subscribe and Share
