I get many questions asking if you can use a hairdryer instead of a heat gun or blow torch. While I usually recommend a heat gun over a hairdryer, there are times when only a hairdryer will do. Like when you want to create more movement in your art and the heat gun is not moving it enough.
In this video, I started out using the heat gun. However, it wasn’t moving the colours enough, so I switched to a hairdryer. It is quite a simple piece, I have used only three colours, and I wanted to show more wispiness in the movement of the resin.
For this project, I used the following:
- Round Wooden Board: https://amzn.to/2VPMbs6 – US
- Liquid Glass Resin from U Resin: http://bit.ly/LiquidGlassResin
- Colour Obsession Pigment Paste – Royal Purple
- Le Rez Expressions Epoxy Pigment Paste – Angel White: http://bit.ly/lerezmatpaste
- Gold Spray Paint: https://amzn.to/2KeL4LY – US | https://amzn.to/2ROiBRy – UK
- Acrylic Diamonds: http://bit.ly/acrylicdiamonds – Alternative Product: https://amzn.to/2Y7pVJi – US | https://amzn.to/2XWbdUt – UK
- Hairdryer for blowing
