Contemporary Mixed Media Abstract Painting with Epoxy Resin Glaze ~ Antique Roses" by Texas Daily Painter Nancy Standlee

 "Antique Roses" 11057
8x8x1.5" Mixed Media Abstract Painting with Epoxy Resin Glaze 
The epoxy resin glaze gives a clear glass-like finish with lots of depth and it enhances all the colors. These pieces are more beautiful in person than what a photograph could ever present. There are several steps that need to be followed in sequence and the resin cures in 8 hours, hardens to full strength in 72 hours. The piece has prepared Tyvek, embellished foils, acrylic paint, Yupo collage and sand/gravel painted gold.

A side view of the cradle I made after 3 trips to Home Depot trying to find the correct wood, finding the right cutting tool, and lots of emails to the artist who introduced me to this mixed media way of working, Carol Nelson. I'm returning one tool and ended up cutting with a jigsaw that required a lot of patching with modeling paste!! I think in terms of time I would be better off buying ready made Ampersand gesso panels. It was a big learning curve. Now do I really need to buy a table saw? That would require me cleaning out the garage to find a place to put it and with it 103 in Texas I'll probably keep using the jigsaw for awhile. I used an extension cord and set up shop out in the back yard and I made cradles all day long yesterday.
