Selfportraitresin

The latest resin art example from my studio.

I just finished setting this self portrait on a piece of driftwood found on the beach here in San Francisco.

The piece of wood is thick and beautifully aged by the salt, water and sun. When laying it out I decide to do two things I usually avoid:

  • I let a few bubbles form in the resin on both sides of the portrait
  • The drawing itself floats above a thick layer of epoxy resin and curls up at the edges

Clear resin can look like water, and I wanted  the watercolor to look embedded with its support. Let me know what you think of this resin art example!
