Mastering the Art of Layering in Resin

Posted by Adryanna Sutherland on

Resin art is a medium that offers endless possibilities for creativity and innovation. One of the techniques that has been gaining popularity among professional artists is layering. This method involves creating multiple layers of resin, each with its own unique elements, to create a piece with depth and dimension. In this blog post, we will explore this technique and how our professional art supplies at can help you achieve stunning results.

Layering in resin art is a meticulous process that requires patience and precision. The first step is to pour a thin layer of resin onto your work surface. This could be a canvas, a wooden panel, or any other material that can withstand the weight of the resin. Our durable silicone craft mats are perfect to work on as they provide a non-stick surface that is easy to clean.

Once the first layer of resin has cured, it's time to add your first set of elements. This could be a layer of paint, vinyl stickers, or any other inclusions you wish to use. The key is to choose elements that will create visual interest and contrast with the subsequent layers. 

After adding your elements, pour another layer of resin over them. This will encapsulate the elements and create a sense of depth. Repeat this process as many times as you wish, adding different elements to each layer. 

One of the advantages of layering in resin art is that it allows you to create pieces with a three-dimensional effect. The layers of resin create a sense of depth, while the different elements add visual interest. This technique can be used to create a variety of pieces, from jewelry to wall art.

In conclusion, layering is a technique that can take your resin art to the next level. It requires patience and precision, but the results are well worth the effort. With the right tools, you can master this technique and create stunning, dimensional pieces of art.
