Design Review 2: Epoxy Resin Art


I have now positioned the wood in the mold and will place weights over it to hold it down.

Now that the wood and mold are set up, I move to prepping the resin.  I chose 1:1 ratio of epoxy resin to epoxy hardener.  I received a blue pigment that came with addition black and turquoise sample pigments. This portion of the prep is much more fun compared to cutting and drilling mfd board, so I took my time experimenting with various pigments, but eventually decided on this one.

This pigment is 50% blue with the other 50% split between the turquoise and black.  I have poured the resin and now I run a heat gun over it to minimize the amout of air bubbles.

    I love the last picture! It’s such a deep, beautiful blue. What exactly will you use the resin for?
