For this project, I wanted to recreate a beach scene only this time incorporate it into a wave shape and turn it into a free-standing sculpture. Using a similar process to my previous resin beach scenes, I used real sand for the base and tinted the resin with small amounts of India Ink.
For the top, I mixed a small amount of white resin with the Acrylic Diamonds and spooned them into shape for the wave. To achieve the white foamy waves, I poured a layer of clear before adding the white and blew it with the heat gun to get movement.
Finally, after leaving it to cure for a few hours (checking every hour) until it was no longer sticky and bent it over rolls of bubble wrap. It was then left to cure overnight.
