In a previous post I showed you a piece of art I am creating by wrestling metal taken out of Walter.
I have just plucked up courage to experiment with epoxy resin on this artwork. Smaller experiments have worked well and included glazing sea glass to create jewellery and making larger items for candles.
After making a wooden frame and clamping it in place around the painted background. I then mixed the epoxy resin, adding a navy blue dye. When ready I poured it over the background and placed the metal work on top. After setting over night the metal work is now firmly attached to the background.

And why is this so important? Aaah yes because the rather lovely oak counter tops will be protected by a thin layer of epoxy resin and this is a further practice.
