How To Resin A Charcoal Drawing
- Complete your charcoal drawing on paper sized to fit your wood panel. Once the painting is dry, mount the artwork onto the panel using your chosen adhesive - whether it's a spray adhesive, a glue stick, or a brush-on adhesive.
💡 TIP: For optimal results, smooth out any wrinkles or air pockets by either using your hands or gently rolling a brayer over the top. This ensures the paper is securely and evenly attached to the panel, with no air pockets.
- Seal your work using a spray sealant, allowing it to dry completely according to the label directions. Choose a sealant that dries clear, offers UV protection, and is designated safe for charcoal.
Wearing gloves, measure and mix the ArtResin according to instructions.
💡 TIP: If you're not sure how much ArtResin you need, enter the dimensions of your piece into our Resin Calculator.
- Pour the resin in the center of your artwork and use a flat-edged spreading tool to guide the resin over the entire surface.
Use an Artist’s Torch to remove bubbles.
- Cover and all the resin to cure. After 24 hours, the resin will be dry to the touch and will be fully cured after 72 hours.
