Okay so I thought I would try this new form of art.
Painting fish with acrylic paint in resin.
This is done in layers.
So first I paint the pectoral fins then throw a layer of resin then paint the body etc.etc.
I am going to try a marine fish next for all you sealine fisherman.
Watch this space for more.

The painting is quick its the waiting for the different layers of resin to dry.
This one had 6 layers.

Quick question, as a kid in school we made "paperweights" using shells/gems/toys etc.. cast in resin. Would this be the same resin you using?
