Step by Step Guide: How to Coat Paintings with Resin

Adding epoxy resin to a painting or art piece enhances the colors and gives the piece a glossy, clean finish. A clear coat of resin also provides added protection from general wear or scratches. Although the results glisten for themselves, the process requires patience, preparation, and care.


Below we’ve outlined how to coat a painting with epoxy resin, including the materials you will need, pro tips, and the precautions you should take when handling resin.

Materials Needed

  • The painting or art you want to coat
  • Art 'N Glow Clear Casting and Coating Epoxy Resin
  • Several disposable cups for mixing
  • Stirring utensil
  • Gloves
  • Protective eyewear
  • A level
  • An artists torch or heat gun
  • A box or something similar to cover your resin with as it cures

Prepare Your Workspace

Before you do anything, you need to prepare your workspace. When using epoxy resin, ensure your workspace is well-ventilated. You also want to pick a space that is relatively clean and has very little dust, as these particles can find their way into your resin during the curing process. 


The temperature of your workspace should be mild to warm. Aim for between 72°F-78°F. For best results, the temperature should be closer to 78°F. Wipe down surfaces and lay down a protective covering over the table or floor. If you are applying resin to a large painting or project, you may want to cover both the table and the floor. A plastic drop cloth or large garbage bag works best for protection since the resin cannot seep through.


An epoxy resin workspace should be:

  • Dust and dirt free
  • Between 72°F-85°F (22°C-29°C)
  • Well-ventilated
  • Covered with plastic for protection

Prepare Your Painting

Your painting or project must be balanced perfectly in order to spread the resin out evenly. If your art piece is off balance, it will tilt, and your resin will leak off the edge. Resin is expensive, so take care not to waste it and make a mess of your workspace in the process. 


Make sure there is no dust or hair on the surface of your painting before you being, by wiping it with a cloth damp with solvent (such as rubbing alcohol or acetone). If the surface you are applying resin to is porous or highly-absorbent, it must be sealed first. Paper or cardboard are examples of materials that should be sealed before applying resin. To seal the surface, paint on a thin layer of resin and let it dry before you move to the Pour and Spread step.


If you want a thick layer of resin on a project, create a barrier (dam) around the edges with masking or painters tape. Press the tape around the entire project. The tape should stick up at least a half inch.


🎨 Pro Tip: When damming or taping your edges, it is best to remove the tape at the 24 hour mark for the least hassle.

Mix the Resin

Before you mix your resin, determine how much you will need to cover your entire painting. Measure equal parts resin and hardener into two separate cups. Next, pour those cups into a third cup for mixing. Do not pour the mixture from high above the measuring cup, as this can result in the formation of microbubbles. Mix the resin and hardener thoroughly, scraping both the sides and the bottom as you stir.Mix for 3-5minutes, or until there is no ‘streaking’ in the resin.


🎨 Pro Tip: Use resin at room temperature or slightly above room temperature to reduce bubbles. If your resin is too cold, the consistency may be too thick to pour and spread. Additionally, it will appear milky and cloudy instead of clear.  


🎨Pro Tip: Stir your resin with a plastic spoon or knife, or a popsicle stick. Using something recycled that you can throw away after will save you time during your clean up.


Pour and Spread

Pour the resin evenly over the surface and spread the resin to each edge and corner with your hands (while wearing gloves), a plastic spreader, a brush, or something disposable like a popsicle stick. Even if the resin you are using is self-leveling, it’s a good idea to spread it out manually.

🎨Pro Tip: You can use a playing card or business card to spread your resin. The flexibility of the card will help you spread the resin evenly.


Remove Bubbles

A few minutes after you have spread the resin across your project, you will begin to see bubbles rise to the surface. To get rid of these, it’s best to use a butane or propane torch on a low flame. 

When using a torch, hold it approximately eight inches away from the surface of your project and always keep it moving. Keep the flame on low, and gently sweep the flame across the surface until all the bubbles have been removed. If you do not see the bubbles disappearing before your eyes, move the flame slightly closer to the surface. DO NOT hold the torch in one place for too long, as this can result in yellowing and permanent damage to the surface and coating.


After you have applied the torch, observe your project carefully under good light. Dust particles or hair can still be removed at this point, so look closely. 


🎨Pro Tip: Pop any persistent bubbles with a small pin or toothpick. 

Keep checking the surface for 1-2 hours after spreading to ensure no new bubbles have appeared.

Cover and Cure

As your project cures, make sure you cover it so that no dust, dirt, or hair finds its way into the resin. Place a large box over top of the project to keep particles out. Ensure the box or covering is clean before placing it over the project.


After applying the resin, allow it to cure for 24-72 hours. Depending on the size and thickness of the project, you may want to let it cure for longer.We recommend you allow your project to cure and harden for 5 days before placing objects on it.


If your resin project will be outside, you can spray it (after it has cured) with a UV resistant acrylic for added protection against the outdoors. This protection is only temporary as all epoxy resin will eventually yellow after prolonged UV exposure.  


Finish Edges

Depending on your painting or project, finishing edges may not be necessary. If you used a tape barrier around your painting or pulled your resin to exactly the edge, you won’t need to worry about finishing your edges.


To get a professional-looking, finished edge, you’ll need to use a table saw (not for canvas projects). With a table saw, you can achieve a clean cut through the resin and your artwork. You can also achieve a finished edge with a power sander. Once you’ve trimmed or sanded your edges, you can optionally paint them any color. 


Clean and Store

After the resin has cured (is solid), it is safe to throw away with your regular garbage. If your resin has not cured, for example, on your stir stick or mixing bowls immediately after application, do not wash them to prevent uncured resin from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways, and/or groundwater. 


Always ensure any unwanted unmixed resin or hardener is properly disposed of.

How to Resin a Canvas for Beginners

You don’t have to be a professional artist to get the sleek look of epoxy resin on your artwork: it provides a modern, glossy, finish to paintings, photographs, prints, drawings, wood, metal and more. 

Artist Allyson Reeves always wanted to try ArtResin on one of her abstract acrylic paintings but was a bit intimidated, so we invited her to spend some time with ArtResin's Joanne to help demystify the process. 

Within 30 minutes, Allyson was measuring, mixing and pouring like a pro.

Though the idea of applying epoxy resin may seem a bit daunting,ArtResin was designed by artists who understand what artists want:

  • a product designed specifically for artwork
  • a safe and easy application
  • and most importantly, pro results. 

This video will show how simple ArtResin is when you follow a few key steps: measure, mix, pour, spread, cover and you’ll wonder why you haven’t been using it all along!

Let's get started ...

What You'll Need: 

  • ArtResinepoxy resin
  • plastic container for water bath ( optional )
  • paper towel
  • masking tape 
  • cardboard 
  • compressed air canister to eliminate surface dust from artwork ( optional )
  • plastic stands to prop up artwork ( pyramids, plastic cups, lego )
  • level 
  • nitrile gloves ( a must! )
  • plastic measuring cup ( or 2-3 clear plastic drinking glasses )
  • stir stick
  • a spreading tool
  • anArtist's Torch
  • toothpicks
  • dust cover large enough to fit your piece ( a cardboard box or a plastic tote )

1. Assemble Your Materials:


Gather together your ArtResin and your tools before you start resining:you want to make sure you have everything you need on hand so you can measure, mix, pour and spread ArtResin with ease and efficiency.


Line your work surface with plastic for easy clean up and to protect your table top: a vinyl shower curtain makes an easy, inexpensive liner that can be re-used again and again. Resin drips can either be wiped clean with paper towel and isopropyl alcohol or, if allowed to dry, can be peeled off the next day.


A torch is the very best way to zap bubbles
 out of wet resin for a flawless finish. Our butane powered Artist's Torch ( pictured below ) is perfect for most jobs. For larger pieces, you may want to look into a propane powered torch.   



Use hard plastic tools:
epoxy resin doesn't stick to plastic making clean up a breeze and allowing you to re-use your tools indefinitely. We like using hard plastic mixing cups, stir sticks, stands, and spreaders.



Have a dust cover ready to go:
you never want to leave your wet, freshly resined piece sitting out while you look for a cardboard box or plastic tote to fit your piece.

2. Prepare Your Artwork:


Make sure your artwork is dry and dust free:a soft brush or canister of compressed air can help eliminate dust.


Decide if you want to resin the entire painting ( i.e including sides ) or if you only want to resin the top: applying resin to the top of your artwork while leaving the sides unresined is referred to as doming. Since Allyson's painting wrapped around the sides of the canvas, she decided to resin the entire piece. 

💡 TIP: 
Read more about how to dome in our blog What Is Doming Resin?


If you want to resin the sides, we always advise taping off the bottom of your piece:  Why tape the bottom? As gravity pulls the resin down the sides, drips will naturally start to accumulate along the bottom of your piece. Tape will catch the drips. Once the resin is dry to the touch, you can pull the tape off and the drips right along with it. 



Stretched canvases should be reinforced: the weight of epoxy resin can cause stretched canvas to sag and, consequently, the resin to pool in the centre. To prevent this, cut a piece of cardboard to size and insert it in the back to provide strength and stability.




Prop your piece up on plastic stands: propping up your piece allows drips to pool on the plastic lined work surface. Epoxy resin won't adhere to plastic stands so you can easily peel off resin drips once dried. 



Ensure your work is perfectly horizontal by checking it with a traditional level or with ArtResin's mobile phone level: www.artresin.com/level




2. Prepare Your ArtResin


It's important that both ArtResin and your resin room is at least room temperature or warmer.  Epoxy resin loves warm temperatures, so 75-85F or 24-30C is absolutely ideal.  During the cold winter months, it's a good idea to increase the temperature of your resin room before you start to resin and, if your ArtResin is cold, you may choose to give your bottles a warm water bath before you measure and mix. It's important to prevent any water from getting into the resin: keep the caps on, don't submerge the bottles and dry the bottles off thoroughly before you open them.

💡 TIP: See our blog Should I Warm Epoxy Resin In A Water Bath? for more information and helpful tips.




Measure equal parts by volume: ArtResin is a 1:1 epoxy resin, meaning that you need equal parts of resin and hardener measured by volume. To determine how much ArtResin you will need for your piece, enter the length and the width into theResin Calculatoron our website.

For example, Allyson's 12"x12" piece requires 5 oz total, made up of 2.5 oz of resin and 2.5 oz of hardener.


Wearing gloves, measure equal amounts of resin and hardener: it doesn't matter which one you start with, as long as you measure equal amounts of both. You can pour the resin and hardener ( one at a time ) into a measuring cup OR you can measure the resin and hardener in two separate cups and then pour into a third cup for mixing. It's important to measure accurately: if your resin and hardener are not perfectly equal, your resin may not cure properly. 




Mix thoroughly for at least 3 minutes: as you stir, scrapethe sides and bottom of the cup to ensure you incorporate every last bit of resin and hardener. Mixing thoroughly and scraping the sides will ensure every last bit of resin and hardener are combined: under mixing may lead to curing issues so this is an important step. Now you're ready to pour!



3. Pour The Resin

Pour the mixed ArtResin onto the centre of your piece and spread it out to the edges using a plastic spreader: you'll have about 45 minutes of working time before the resin gets too thick to work with.

💡TIP: Read our blogHow To Pour And Spread Epoxy Resinfor more resin tips and techniques!



Use the spreader to gently pull a little resin over the edges and down the sides of your piece. Using gloved hands, smooth the resin out, evenly coating each side.



5. Torch, Cover And Wait: 

Using an Artist’s Torch, hold the flame a couple of inches above the resin surface just long enough to pop the bubbles. One or two passes with the torch is all you need to get rid of bubbles.

💡TIP: if you're nervous about using a torch, don't be! Read our blog with all you need to know about How To Use A Torch On Epoxy Resin.



Keep
 the torch in a constant side to side motion, as if you're ironing clothes. Don't hold the flame too close- it should just lightly kiss the resin surface.





Use a toothpick to pop any missed bubbles or to fish out any bits of dust:
  look at your resin under a light source and at eye level to easily spot any imperfections.





Cover and wait 24 hours:
using a clean plastic tote or cardboard box ( with the flaps cut off ), cover your piece and let it sit for 24 hrs until it’s dry to the touch.  Last step is cleaning your tools: we like to wipe our tools down with isopropyl alcohol and paper towel until all traces of resin have been removed.  Dried resin can be peeled off of plastic tools, liners and stands. For more tips on how to clean your tools, check out our blog How Can I Clean Epoxy Resin Mixing Containers?

💡TIP: the resin will be dry to the touch at the 24hr mark.  At this point, you're free to hang your artwork on the wall but if you're planning on packing and shipping your artwork, please wait at least 72hrs until the resin has fully cured.




6. Reveal!

Absolutely gorgeous!
ArtResin took Allyson's vibrant acrylic paintings next level, giving them a professional looking finish and a glossy sheen that makes colour pop!





We hope you found this tutorial informative and helpful. More importantly, we hope it made the process of applying epoxy resin a little less intimidating. Like anything, practice makes perfect but these suggestions will give you a good head start:

  • have everything you need ready to go:tools laid out & artwork prepped
  • ensure your ArtResin and resin room is 75-85F or 24-30C
  • measure accurately, mix thoroughly, scrape your container as you stir
  • use a torch and dust cover

Before you know it, you'll be applying ArtResin over ALL of your favourite art pieces!
