How To Resin Chalk Pastel
- Complete a chalk pastel design on paper sized to fit a wood panel (or other sturdy substrate).
- Brush adhesive onto the panel.
- Starting by lining up the side closest to you, carefully lay down the print onto the panel. Lay a clean piece of paper cut to size on top of the artwork.
- Using your hands or a brayer, gently smooth out the entire surface to remove air bubbles trapped under the paper and to ensure a good, secure bond to the panel.
💡A NOTE ON SEALANTS: If there is quite a lot of chalk dust that might float away in the resin or you’ve used uncoated paper that may absorb the resin, apply a spray sealant to your work before you resin. Choose a spray sealant that dries clear, offers UV protection and is appropriate for chalk pastel art. Allow to dry according to label directions.
- Wearing gloves, measure and mix the ArtResin according to instructions.

- 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.
