Experimenting with India Ink in Resin

In today’s video I am playing around with neat India Ink dropped into freshly poured resin.

I wasn’t sure how the resin would react with ink dropped straight into it and then manipulated through the resin. I have previously played with ink in semi cured resin and achieved nice results.

The resin was poured into the silicone mat (29 x 39 cm) I used in a previous video, only this time I didn’t bend it around anything and let it cure as it.

To finish it off, it was mounted on to board and placed in a frame.

For this project you will need:

  • 1 x silicone mat, approximately 5mm thick.
  • Resin – I used 1.2 litres in the 39 x 29 cm mat
  • Ink – I have only tried India Ink, you can experiment with ink you already have.
  • Stones or Gems (Optional)
  • Heat Gun or Blow Torch, for popping bubbles
  • Frame for mounting (Optional)

I hope you enjoy this tutorial and it gives you ideas for your own India Ink and Resin art.
