Why is resin art so popular?
Epoxy resin is an exceptionally versatile medium that can be used to create beautiful pieces of art, and its popularity has soared over the last few years! Resin first became known in the art world as a shiny surface coating for paintings and photographs: artists loved how it made colors pop, and its sleek, modern look made it an attractive alternative to traditional picture framing methods.
Resin's versatility, however, soon captured the imagination of contemporary artists, hobbyists, crafters and woodworkers who developed new and innovative ways to incorporate it into their work. This included adding colorants to create flow art, embedding crystals to make geode art, pouring into molds to form jewelry and sculptural home decor, and using tinted resin to add bright pops of color to wood boards and tabletops.
