What Is The Best Supportive Surface To Use With Resin?Posted on 6 Mar 13:16
When resining over a large stretched canvas, sometimes it may look as though something has repelled your resin and prevented it from adhering along the edges. In fact, what actually may have happened is that the canvas sagged under the weight of the resin and caused it to pool in the centre.
If you need to resin over a stretched canvas, it helps to reinforce the back of your canvas to provide some strength and support. Insert a piece of cardboard cut to size in the back of the stretched canvas, and you can even use some wood slats or shims to create a cross bar for additional support - this is particularly helpful for large canvases.
If you do have a large piece that you intend to resin, try using a large wooden panel instead. Remember, when working with resin, the sturdier the surface, the better!
