Trying to learn how to use resin on the layered pieces.
Very pretty! I like the pop of color!
Very nice!! That seahorse is amazing!
Wow, the second turtle is my favorite. The color really makes the different woods stand out nicely. Great job!
What kind of resin are you using - and are you happy with it?
Thank you! I just grabbed some smartart resin off Amazon. Nothing fancy but I like how easy it is to mix (with a battery powered mixer).
I love the seahorse and the second turtle.
Wow just wow!!!
These are all gorgeous! My favorite part is the octopus within the seahorse.
Is there any chance you’d be willing to write up a description of your process for designing and making these? What tools do you use for the creative process? Are there particular constraints that must be followed for a good design? Are there guidelines for what goes into what layer (beyond the aesthetic)? Am I correct in assuming there are no overhanging layers? What are some of the mistakes you’ve made? I assume the process is more than “shove a bunch of clipart together into layers”. I’d love to know more about your design process, if you’re willing to share.
What a great effect you are getting from the resin! I love the visual texture it provides, making the scene look underwater-and-otherworldly.
Appears you have aced the resin application. Just enough color to make them pop. Love them all.
The colored turtle was a bit distracting, though. Mostly noticeable because an unpainted one is immediately below it?
Regardless, great work. Thanks for sharing.
I’m going to make that seahorse 46" tall on the next one.
I bought these designs off etsy. I have started to make my own designs but these are easy to find. There are overhanging layers that a cleaning person can snag with a feather duster (lesson learned). Basically cut the designs, stain, spray a sealant on the layers then glue and clamp each layer. Trial and error.
I wonder if a sheet of clear acrylic would solve that? That or dust it with a blast of air.
Air can all the way! A cover takes away from the layering in my opinion.
Great job! Nice color work!
@armyclark designed the seahorse
This looks very cool. I love working with resin. Started with it before I started with the Glowforge. Try adding a little white in the blue for sea foam etc. I would also try and do a flood coat completely over one. I love how resin makes everything looks so beautiful and it would have so much depth with the various wood layers inside. Start with a small one and give it a try.
Pieces are absolutely gorgeous!!!
Thank you !
