Acrylic painting

I thought I would make a new blog on some of my new hobbies that I'm interested in. I hope you enjoy my journey as I learn more and progress.

The first hobby i wanted to deal with was acrylic pour paintings. I found these type of acrylic pour paintings on YouTube and thought wow they look really good, so I decided to try and give them a try my self. I know they will most likely start out at being crap lol, but everyone has to start out from somewhere, and as I'm not exactly getting any younger I thought I would give it a go.

I'm not sure how many I will do. I've just bought a bunch of paints and small canvasses from my local art shop and will post them on here when I get the time.

I cant wait to start and I hope that you enjoy my efforts.

As well as doing acrylic pour painting I will also be experimenting with resin. This will include resin moulds and also resin paintings. As with the acrylic painting ive loved the idea of making different type of resin projects from coasters to lights to ornaments.

The one issue with using resin is the wait time. You would normaly do things with resin in layers, so you need to wait for at lest 4-6 hours between layers and then need to wait 24 hours before its set solid and can be demoulded.

I hope that you enjoy this journey with me

Any comments you may have would be nice to see.
I hope you enjoy
