in this video, I make a triptych resin painting on three round wooden canvases. I use primary colors and gold. I use several mediums to color my resin including pigment powders, inks, acrylic paints, spray paint, and more. For links to supplies I use in my Resin Art, see below.

Tips:  Use a different medium for each, such as alcohol inks, acrylic inks, acrylic Paints, pigment powders, spray paint, etc.Budget friendly options/tips:

-eyeshadows work just like pigment powders and you can get some really cool colors at your local dollar store if you don’t already have some in the back of your makeup drawer!

-food coloring works to give a transparent look to your resin, just like alcohol inks.  Food coloring works great with a little silicone oil mixed in it if you want a cell, lacing effect in your piece

Last tip of the day: KNOW WHEN TO STOP.  DO NOT WORK YOUR RESIN INTO A MUDDY MESS.  THE EFFECTS WILL HAPPEN AFTER YOU WALK AWAY FROM THE PIECE.  trust in the process.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

It’s very good to see such works on display and I like how you have been consistent with it

  2. These are really beautiful and I can feel myself getting connected to this. In all honesty, you have done a great job beyond what anyone could literally picture and that is the goal and it inakes a lot of sense to see this here it really is very beautiful to see here. Thank you for sharing this triptych resin art. Good one for the time here

    1. Collins, I am so honored that you enjoyed my work enough to take down my paypal! You are much appreciated.  Stay healthy and creative! 

  4. Hello again! This is another beautiful work of yours on triptych resin painting on three round wooden canvases. You’re a very good painter and I hope more people would get to see your works. These steps are kind of difficult but I can’t really say that until I try it. I’m going to save this video and bookmark your website so I can come back to it after getting my equipments and try out this beautiful art work. 

  5. wow! Interesting art work. I haven’t tried this before, im sure my daughter would love to try this. But i can imagine we will both get so messy with it hehe, but it is all for love of fun. I didn’t know we could use eyeshadows, that’s really cool. I have lots of expired ones in my drawer to put into good use. thanks for sharing.

    1. Eyeshadow is a great way to save money on coloring mediums. Pigment powders can cost a pretty penny and, honestly, it really is the same thing . Also, using food coloring instead of buying expensive alcohol inks will give you a translucent colored final resin piece. you can make some stunning effects with things you can find at your local dollar store. Just to be clear though, epoxy resin is pricey. This isn’t a craft that is easily done on a tight budget due to the price of resin. However, there are ways to save and I love sharing them with my readers!
