Other Supplies:

  • 91% Alcohol
  • Wooden Canvas

Step 1: Apply Your Base

Start by mixing a 1:1 ratio of Acrylic Glacier Resin and Hardener. Add about 5% white pigment to the mixture and allow it to set for 24 hours. This creates a pristine white canvas as your base.

Step 2: Apply Alcohol 

Using an artist brush, apply alcohol to a section of your canvas.

Step 3: Apply Alcohol Inks

Drip a few drops of alcohol ink onto the alcohol-saturated surface. Tilt the canvas to allow the ink to spread, creating a sheer layer.

Step 4: Apply Resin Pigment

Add a drop of resin pigment on top of the alcohol ink. Use a tongue depressor to spread the color, experimenting with different layering techniques and color combinations.


Step 5: Add Resin

Create a dotted line of pigments, then apply a small amount of resin on top using a tongue depressor. Spread the colors around, layering them in different shapes and patterns.

Step 6: Add Metallic Shimmer

Apply metallic mica powders on top to add shimmer, experimenting with different patterns.

Step 7: More Layering

Mix a small amount of mica powder into your Acrylic Glacier Resin and layer it on top of your canvas. Continue layering pigments, inks, and mica powders, blending the colors together.


Step 8: Apply Leaf

Using an artist brush, apply small pieces of gold, copper, or silver leaf. This adds texture and a luxurious touch. Once dry, apply gold leaf around the edges for a high-end finish. Allow the piece to sit for another 24 hours before displaying.

Final Results!
