The youtube vortex sucked me in, and I ended up watching this video:

And, like always, I thought, “I NEED to try this!” So I did. First attempt = disaster. But I learned SO much. Only use a little bit of paint in the resin. Background colors can show up. Extremely level/flat is insanely important in the drying process. Work fast. If the first (or second or third) layer looks terrible, you can pour additional resin coats on top.

I decided to experiment and combine paper maché with resin. Sometimes the stars align, and mixed media projects come together nicely. This was one of those times!

I ended up with a 3d topographical map of Antelope Island in Utah. I shipped it off to my pops for father’s day. He recognized Frary Peak right away. 🙂

And now I can add 3d land-form sculptures to my resume. Which island should I do next?
