Today’s Resin Tip of the Day is on how to apply the resin to a curved surface.

As you know resin starts life in liquid form and so is great for pouring over art and creating fluid art. When it comes to coating a curved or uneven surface, its self-levelling properties makes it a challenge. 

So how do you apply the resin to a curved surface?

If you are applying the resin to a tumbler, that is fine because you can buy turning devices to continually turn the cup until the resin cures. If like me, you want to apply the resin to a curved lampshade, it is not as easy.

To combat the resin running straight off, you have to wait until the resin has cured/thick enough before pouring. So in this video, I will show you how I prepare the resin for pouring and what I do to not only prevent it from running off but how I create texture in the process.
