Epoxy Resin Clear Coat for Artwork: ArtResin®


In this video we’ll teach you how to use ArtResin
epoxy resin. ArtResin is a two-part clear liquid that turns
to a rock-hard, glass-like finish when you mix both parts together. It’s easy to do and the results are amazing. So let’s get started. ArtResin can work on any medium, so today
we’ll be coating this piece: it’s an acrylic painting on a wooden panel. You’ll want to have ready your: ArtResin,
scrap paper to catch drips, stands to hold up your piece, a level, painter’s tape, nitrile
gloves, mixing cups or containers, a stir stick, a spreader, something to cover your
piece with to protect it from dust while the resin cures, and as an option, an artist’s
torch. To start, tape the underside of your piece
to protect it against drips. Raise your piece up on stands so that it doesn’t stick to the
table top. And then you’ll want to make sure that your work is level. Now, how do you determine
how much resin you’ll need? Our online calculator will do the math for
you. This piece is 16 by 16 inches, so that’s
about 2 square feet. Our Starter Kit covers 8 square feet so I’ll
only need to mix up a quarter of it — 4 ounces from this bottle, and an equal amount 4 ounces
from the other. The ratio is 1 to 1 so you can visually measure
the amount you need. Stir for 3 minutes, scraping the sides and
bottom to make sure you get everything mixed thoroughly Now for the fun part! Pour the ArtResin mixture right onto your
work… and spread it out! Our reusable jagged spreaders
are great for this. It’s totally fine if the resin runs over
the sides. We’ll show you how to finish the edges in a moment. Next let’s take care of any bubbles. ArtResin is great because many of the bubbles
pop on their own. You can blow on the stubborn ones, or use an artists torch to speed up the process. You can actually see them popping in front
of your eyes. Once that’s complete, you can spread the
resin on the edges with a spreader, or with your gloved hand. If you don’t want to coat the sides you
can just spread it neatly on top. So you have about 45 minutes to play with
the resin. After that, it starts to cure and will continue
to cure for the next 24 hours. So cover it up with a cardboard box and wait
patiently! It’s the next day. Let’s see how it looks! Amazing, it looks and feels like glass–only
much less fragile! Try it out on your:
photos, paintings, woodworking, mixed media, sculpture, glass, encaustic, drawings, jewelry,
crafts, anything you can imagine! We formulated ArtResin from the highest quality
materials to enhance your projects and ensure your safety. It’s non toxic, has no VOCs or fumes, and
is chemically engineered to offer the most efficient yellowing protection on the market. So go ahead and get creative!

  7. if I want to pour artresin on a photograph or paper stickers do I need to seal it? Also once completely dry, if you press it with your fingernail, will it leave a mark? thanks.

  9. So I just purchased ArtResin for the first time and I'm very excited! My question is actually what is the name of the song playing, I've been grooving to it.

  10. Is this really safe to use at home? Also, can I use it to make jewelry? I bought ice resin today and when I opened it up and read all the warnings I don't want to use it anymore, it's going back. I want something that won't hurt me if I accidently spill it or breath it in.

  11. Hello, I am always using Art resin and I did a Lazy Susan. I would like to know if Art resin is strong enough if I put a hot plate on it ! I hope you see what mean 😉 Nicole from France

  12. Hello my name is eli I have a question so I use markers Sharpies, chart pack, prisma color and molotow markers and paint markers on all kinds of paper from Matt board to marker grade paper if I use the resin should I seal my work and mount them on wood boards so they will not discolor or warp when using the resin if so what should I seal the marker work with and Should I use your resin or should I use varnish instead thank you for your time and consideration on this matter

  13. can you re coat ArtResin Ive had a bad reaction between the resin and the painters tape and also a few place on my art with need to be re done?

  14. I am using resin on ceramic tiles that have been acrylic pour painted. It works great, but I was getting separation along the edges (like the resin just didn't cover a small portion). I used silicone in the paint but washed the tile thoroughly with dish detergent. Would the non-covered spaces be from residue of the silicone?

  15. Two questions this morning. 1. Will ArtResin prevent silver from tarnish? Where can I purchase the yellow stands you are using and what is the "proper" name for them? Is that three questions?

  16. Is it possible to resin over a diamond painting? A diamond painting is tiny rhinestones on a sticky canvas paper type thing… here’s a link to a quick video I found to explain what it is I’m trying to resin…. I think a resin coat would bring out the shine in the diamond AND hold down the diamond so they can’t fall off…. would it work?

  17. Hello, A few questions, what are the differences between the Studio and Professional Artresin products? I do ink drawings on paper and wanted to mount the paper to the board. What is the best paper to use, do I need to use a fixative on the drawing to protect the ink and what is the best way to adhere the paper to the board to prevent seepage under the drawing? Lastly how does this product compare to other resins as far as yellowing? thanks

  18. Great video! Going to be using this for the first time. Can I create a barrier with automotive tape to create a thick layer of resin on top of my work?

  19. Just wondering did you use a glue to attach the picture to the wood What glue did you use? Great Video and can't wait to do mine.

  20. I love how the colors pop after the resin coat. I bought this product a while ago and I tried it on a couple of paintings. The finished piece looked amazing except for some empty spots. I used a level before pouring and it looked good before I cover it from dust however in both cases, after 24 hours both paintings had those empty patches here and there. How can I prevent that?

  21. I want to do flowers, real flowers with a glow in the dark powdered bottom inside a pyramid silicone mold. That's going to be neat. Use glow worm or some kind of glow in the dark powder or pigment to make glow in the dark things. I'm waiting for the rest of my shipment on my molds and spoons, cups and such.. I can't wait to do this ride. lol

  22. Thanks for the informative video. It had been great if the background music had been much, much lower. Despite that small detail thanks again

  23. When do you take the tape off the bottom of the painting and HOW do you do this without touching the painting?

  24. If I wanting do several coats or layers. How do you need to wait between each layer? And if already cured, is it to late to add another coat?

  25. Hi. If Art Resin is used in a piece of furniture (a table for example), how can it be cleaned? Would not there be fingerprints?

  26. I was told I could use Art Resin for casting as well. I tried it on some crystal molds and they came out completely cloudy and full of bubbles? Why?
