Specifically ArtResin. In reading and researching resins to use, I came across ArtResin. My main choice for choosing ArtResin was the ease of use reported by the folks that have been using it. Many talk about how fool proof it is... and it is true! I have not had any issues with curing (which is a plus, since I use the resin on my favorite pieces... not one has been ruined due to a bad cure.) Also, in addition the epoxy is very low in fumes. A definite plus for someone who gets migraine headaches. ArtResin provides a wonderful, smooth, glass like appearance over any painting... also have used ArtResin to create cabochons for earring and pendants. So many uses!

Wed, 17 May 2017 11:52:05 CDT Getting Started So, I have always heard that getting started is always the hardest part. Well, it is. I have recently started painting again after many years. The first painting I did was actually painful to do. I second guessed myself constantly. Does this look right? What will other people think? Does this even look like it's supposed to? Well, you know what? After the first painting, the second was much easier to create, the third, the fourth... I still critique myself and want to be satisfied with my artwork. But, to be honest now, in the long run it really doesn't matter if others like it or not. The whole process isn't about other people. It is about me, and what I want to create and put down on the canvas. If others happen to like it, that is wonderful. But, it will not stop me from creating if they don't. I enjoy the process of painting and how it makes me think about my surroundings in a new way. That in itself is worth it. Thu, 24 Mar 2016 14:22:11 CDT
