How To Resin A Lino Print
- If your lino block print design is on paper, securely mount it to a sturdy substrate, like wood. Alternatively, print your design directly onto a birch panel or cradle board.
Allow the ink to dry thoroughly before applying resin.
💡 TIP: Most block printing inks won't require a sealant prior to resining. However, test first to ensure the ink won't run or the paper won't absorb the resin. If in doubt, use a clear-drying spray or brush-on sealant. Let the sealant dry completely, following the label instructions.
- Ensure the artwork is level and propped up on stands if necessary.
- Wearing gloves, measure and mix ArtResin according to directions.

- Pour the resin in the center of your artwork and use a flat-edged spreading tool to guide it over the entire surface.
- Use an Artist’s Torch to remove bubbles.
- Cover and allow the resin to cure. After 24 hours, your resin will be dry to the touch and fully cured after 72 hours.
