Sometimes you get a bright idea and although you aren't sure it will work, you still gotta try! That's what happened with this piece - and it WORKED! I wondered if I could create even more dimension with my resin art if I used texture paste underneath.
I started by spreading some texture paste through my "heart mandala" stencil. Once the paste was completely dry, I brought out some of the detail with metallic rubs. Then I mixed several colors of Alumidust powders into Amazing Clear Cast Resin and poured them over top. I covered and set aside to cure fully.
WOW!!! I just love the way it turned out with the added texture encased in the layers colored resin.
