People seem to enjoy my beach themed trivets so I thought I’d make a few to have on hand. They start out looking similar and by the time I’m done, they each have their own unique look to them. They are a bit time consuming as they need to be done in stages but I think it’s well worth it.
The sandy beach layer is made up from a mixture of chunky and fine glitter mixed with resin. I use a combination of 4-5 different blues and turquoise to make up the water. To make the waves, I use a fine line of white resin and blow it out.
I wish you could see these in person as they are much prettier than they photograph.
These three are probably the closest I’ve come to duplicating a pattern. U and W were made by pouring the paint on one record and pressing the other record on to the paint and then pulling them apart; almost making a mirror image. V was made using an air compressor to blow the paint around. There are just so many different techniques that can be used when making acrylic poured creations.
Finally getting around to posting a few records that haven’t been posted yet as well as a few records that can be made into a clock or left as they are and used as an art piece. All records are coated with a layer of resin to protect the paint.
