Dang I feel like I’ve been painting so much lately without finishing a thing! This makes painting No. 4 that is presently waiting to be acrylic resin layered.
Honestly the resin can be so expensive though! Yikes!
Lately I’ve been putting all my funds into printing the Happy Hawai’i Greeting Cards that I’ve had to hold off on finishing a growing stack of artwork. The first set of five 3D paintings I created was with a fantastic resin but it was so pricey I decided to look for another brand instead that was a little bit cheaper but it wound up being horrible (and you can’t return open containers!).
I just sourced yet a third and fourth brand that will arrive in the coming weeks (screw it, I’m going all in) that are both waaaaaay cheaper than the original great one but that claim to be just as excellent. Keeping my fingers crossed that one of these next ones will work because it will cut down my resin costs by over 80% and I won’t have wait to create any more. Yay!
Above is a little oil painting I knocked out this past week. I still need to add in her hair and on the next layer will be the orchid she’s gripping in her teeth.
Below are two more that are waiting ever-so-patiently to be layered. Soon enough, my darlings!!!
