Congratulations to artist Lilian, also known as Magnetficent, our latest Instagram winner! Lilian is a self-taught, night time artist who was born in Hong Kong but currently lives in Edmonton, Alberta. She started out in calligraphy but recently discovered resin and then began combining the two styles into one.
Lilian absolutely loves working with Alcohol Ink because of the movement and intriguing patterns that are created once it reacts to ArtResin. She continues to create her dancing ink pieces because it fills her with so much joy each day.
To start, Lilian will warm up her ArtResin, clean the molds and line up her colors one by one. She will then pour the resin and drop the ink, hoping that each piece is better than the last. If the back of the piece is sharp or uneven, she will sand it down and apply a top coat of resin to clean it up.
Each piece of hers is a unique visual experience not only for her viewers but for herself as well. Lilian still gets excited each and every morning as she rushes to demold her pieces. For her, each new day is like Christmas morning :)
Congratulations on your win, Lilian!
