    Those are beautiful, Sassy!!!!!!!!! Very nice!
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.

    Thank you Tyr!

    This is resin art ... no painting involved. It's resin and epoxy mixed with different color mediums (acrylic paint, alcohol paint, mica powder, house paint, etc.) and poured on various mediums (canvas, wood, tile, gesso board). I've just started this hobby so lots of experimenting and lessons to learn. My biggest problem right now is I keep my house cold and it makes resin set up faster so not much time to play with it.

    Also, learning that just because I get it to look the way I want doesn't mean it ends up that way. The resin continues to move until it sets so some of my shapes lose their definition. I don't have an art background so don't know much about color interactions. I seem to do better with the cool colors.

    And, it's a very sticky process!

    Thanks for the info. I'm not even close to pieces to sell. I still have to learn how to get rid of resin nipples (drips down and under the edges), pock marks, oily residue from too much colorant, etc. These are my learning pieces while I try to find my specialty.

    I tried something new with last one I posted (red, black and white smokey effect one). With leftover colors I just dumped and smeared on extra piece. And, because it wasn't enough to make a complete piece I just started moving resin around as it was setting up. Was able to get more defined lines. The next day mixed up clear resin and poured over whole surface and then added a little more color. Right now it's 2 layers. I'm thinking about adding 3rd layer but haven't decided yet.

    Anyway, just messing around I found I can manipulate the resin without being at its total mercy to move after I have decided to stop because I like the look. It's really disappointing when I don't have piece perfectly level and the design slides off as it's setting up.

    Good thing is if I don't like it I can just rough up surface with sandpaper and pour new colors over to create new design.

    It's really fun and can be mesmerising while doing it. Sadly, it's not the kind of art where you can walk away and think about next step. Once you mix the resin you're on a 30-45 minute time frame.
