Resin-ating Through Art: 3D Illusion Painting

Resin-ating Through Art: 3D Illusion Painting

In my last blog I covered the basics of casting figures. If you ever need a review, check out Getting Started.

Wondering how it's all done? Well, here is a step-by-step walk through of this mind-bending technique if you want to try it out.

Ready for a lengthy project? Let's get started!

That's it for this lesson ... hope you make a lot of cool artwork! Have questions, need to troubleshoot? Feel free to drop me a line. Always happy to help!

Now go get creative!
