Pouring Resin is an acrylic pouring medium for creating beautiful art on canvas or wood, and dries with a glossy finish.
This Pouring Resin mixes seamlessly with Fusion to create beautiful and unique acrylic pour artwork. It can be used on canvas, furniture, or any surface that Fusion sticks to. It finishes to a very durable, glossy finish, and can even be used on its own as a finish or top coat over Fusion Mineral Paint. It can even be painted on top of for a multi-dimensional look.
– Durable glossy finish
– Easy to Use
– No topcoat needed
– No VOCs
HOW TO USE
Stir Pouring Resin before using. Best used on a horizontal surface for best application, as Pouring Resin is self-levelling.
To add colour, add a couple of drops of any Fusion Mineral Paint to tint the Resin (no more than 10% paint ratio). You want to use very little paint so that products flows.
Tap the surface to settle air any bubbles.
If using Cell Enhancer, afterwards be sure to wipe those areas clean with a bit of rubbing alcohol to remove the shiny wet look.
Dry time: 8-12 hours | Re-coat time: 12-24 hours | Cure time: 21 days
Looking to add a little bit of an extra effect for your Fusion acrylic pour art? Our Cell Enhancer is the product you need. It is made of a high-grade silicone oil that will enhance, enlarge, and increase the number of cells within your Pouring Resin art application. Simply add a couple of drops to each mixed colour, and let the Cell Enhancer do the rest.
Please note: you CANNOT PAINT OVER a surface that includes Cell Enhancer.
There are 2 types of bubbles that could occur.
1. Large surface bubbles are created from over mixing the medium/pouring.
2. Small bubbles that are almost under the surface (those are trickier and come from a chemicals reaction between the substrate or paints that are being used)
To avoid bubbles, the best surfaces are birch or maple. Prime surface first with a layer of Fusion Paint. Don’t use MDF or other substrates with glues to avoid chemical reactions. A higher quality canvas or wood panel will help to avoid bubbles.
You can use heat to help reduce bubbles, although it is imperative to do this with care. You do not want to burn the resin.
Don’t pour from too far above (which can cause bubbles to form as the resin hits the substrate)
Gentle mixing of colours into the Pouring Resin and then waiting for a couple hours before pouring to allow for bubbles to dissipate will also reduce bubbles.
Spreading the the Pouring Resin: Is intended to be poured, brushing it on can create brush strokes and is not recommended. If you want to move the resin around, it is best to tilt the piece, but you can also use tools like a palette knife.
The pouring resin sticks well to aluminum!
