Resin Workshops in Singapore
Working with a variety of different materials, you’ll learn about the various ways that resin can be used to create beautiful works of art. In this workshop, you’ll explore the basics of mixed media techniques to create your own custom mixed media sculpture.
Materials: Resin, resin mold, paintbrush, stirring stick, gloves (the kind for mixing chemicals) plastic baggy/ziplock freezer bags (for covering your work while curing), cleaner (Purell or other anti-bacterial types), paper towels.
Instructions: Here’s how to get started in the world of Resin Workshops Singapore.
* NOTE: Make sure to mix equal parts of resin and hardener so that the resin cures properly – otherwise, you may end up with a sticky mess.*
Tips on using the right type of materials for your project
When using resin, you can use many different materials. I strongly suggest that you use the right type of materials for your project because it will affect the outcome and the appearance of your project when it’s finished. Experiment with different types of plastics, such as vinyl, which is water-resistant, or polyester which allows you to apply a coating to seal in moisture.
Color is also a factor to consider when using resin. Once your material has gone through the process of hardening, it will no longer be possible to dye or paint over them without first heating up the surface which can damage your project. If you want to add color then an additional coat should be added before resin to your piece. You might have to experiment with different types of paint if you want to add color at a later stage. You can use a variety of paints in the process, but some may need to be activated with certain chemicals in order for them to work properly.
Vinyl will allow you to add more colors and does not require an added layer as painting is possible after the resin has been set. You should always test your paints before applying them to the surface you intend to use, especially if they are not designed for plastics or other materials that are more likely to be used in Resin Workshops Singapore casting.
Testing the paint on a scrap piece of vinyl may help you determine whether or not it will work with the material. Some colors will not take very well or will actually dissolve the surface instead of sticking to it.
It’s very important that you find the right paint before moving on to your project so you don’t have to go back and correct any mistakes that would be irreversible.
There are many different ways in which resin can be used, which is why I’m writing this article. You can either pour it over the material you want to harden, or you can brush it on. If you choose to use a brush, then make sure that your bristles are not too coarse or too fine for the application because if they’re too stiff then the resin will pool and if they’re too soft it will be hard to control.
Resin sets when exposed to air, but it takes a while for the reaction process to be complete. There are two ways in which you can speed up the process: heat and catalysts. Heat will help to accelerate the hardening time of resin, but it should not be too hot, or else it may melt your project. Using a heat gun is recommended for this purpose or you can use a hairdryer.
Catalysts are used to speed up the reaction of resin and harden it more quickly than normal. You’ll need to experiment with these and see which kind works best for your project because it will depend on the size of your piece and the materials you use in order to determine how many catalysts should be used and for which kind of resin.
If you’re wondering about how to make your resin project waterproof, there are many different ways that you can achieve this goal. You’ll want to add a coating when the resin has fully hardened and peeled away from the surface of the material you have poured it on after it’s dried out. Some kind of primer should be used before painting because it will help the paint adhere to the surface. You can use a chemical primer or you can opt for an epoxy-based primer.
The type of resin that you use is very important because it will affect not only your project but also how hazardous it is if you choose to work with dangerous chemicals like methylene chloride. The possibilities are endless when it comes to resin, which is what makes working with this material so fun. As long as you know the basics of how to work with resin, then there are no limits to the types of finished products that you can create.
What are the different types of Resin?
There are many different types of resins. For example, there are water-based and alcohol-based resins and also resin that is made from a synthetic or natural blend. This article will focus primarily on the water-based cast urethane resins. Though a bit more expensive at times, these resins are non-toxic and easy to use. In addition, they’re lightweight and durable as well!
Resin works best with fairly detailed pieces that don’t require intricate mold-making techniques. If you want to cast a mold, it’s best to use ethanol-based or other waterless resins.
The molds actually cast quite easily and are usually in the very simple form of a 2 part box with one part for the front and back and another for the sides. You can also cast resin into ice cube trays or even plastic cups (at Resin Workshops Singapore).
Another benefit to using resin is that it cures quickly. You can pour resin in the morning, use it that night, and have your finished piece within a few hours. Another great thing about resins is that they’re water clear! They don’t fade over time, so you’ll never have to worry about your art getting old.
The color will stay nice and bright!
In addition to the resin, you’ll need a few other things too. Primer is an absolute must as it helps promote adhesion. You can either purchase model primers or household primers in the spray can form. Make sure that the surface of your piece is very clean before applying it. Cleaning with alcohol is the best way to get rid of oils and smudges. Make sure that you apply the primer in several thin coats and wait for it to dry a few hours or even overnight between coats.
When you’re using a primer or sealer, it’s best to use the spray can form. You can use the brush on form too, but there will be some fumes involved!
Another useful tool is a respirator mask when brushing on resin (Resin Workshops Singapore) as any type of paint protection sorta smells bad! To make your own cheap and basic normal mask, just cut a strip of cloth and fold it over into the shape of a triangle. Place this over your mouth and nose, tucking under any extra fabric in the back.
Another useful tool is sandpaper which you can use to create texture such as a rock or tree bark look. If you’re attempting to make an item that would have multiple colors, like a gradient or some sort of camouflage, you might try using vinyl sheets instead.
There are also many other tools that can be used to alter your finished resin piece. For example, there are sprays and dyes made specifically for resin as well as makeup powders that can give the appearance of fine details in clothing. You can even add glitter or sequins! The possibilities are endless.
Recycling is an important part of any art project and it’s another way to get a lot of use out of one piece. When you’ve finished your masterpiece, recycle the resin into small trinkets like beads or buttons by creating a mold from the leftover resin and adding another material to it.
Almost anything can be added as a filler, not just sand or glass beads! Try cheese powder and cream of tartar for a marble effect, dried lentils, or even crumbled cookies to make small cookie buttons! The only limits are your imagination.
After this workshop, you’ll be able to experiment with different materials and techniques that will help you create your own custom mixed-media sculptures. From the basics of resin casting to painting on glass, there is so much for you to explore!
