Resin Mixed Media with Artist Belinda Spiwak

If you've stopped by our booth at a show, you've most likely seen some work by Mixed Media Artist Belinda Spiwak.  She combines found objects and scraps from other projects with a variety of other mediums like acrylic paint, texture paste, and color spritz, resulting in stunning collage effects.  She then pours resin over select areas, letting some of the original textures show through.  The results are dramatic 3-D scapes.  Some tell a story, others are just fun!

Here are some examples:

Here's one more way you can use Little Windows Brilliant Resin to enhance your creations.  Belinda collaged many elements in this piece, then dripped resin over it, in an irregular way, protecting the piece, securing the bits in place, and creating great contrasts in texture and finish.  Click the video link below to see how it's done.

 

 

 

Click this image for a link to Belinda's Facebook Page, and check out her latest creations.  She's a true talent, turning any material - from papers to fabrics to metals - into stunning, layered art.  Thank you Belinda!

 One of Belinda's favorite sources for interesting bits and pieces is a website called skybluepink.com, and I'll admit I'm obsessed with this site and their teeny-weeny puzzle pieces, micro-buttons, asian goodies, charms and ephemera of all sorts - lots to add to your resin creations.  So be sure to take a look for unique goodies at excellent prices!

Amazing Makers: Stacy Whetsell

Our friend Stacy in Texas is not only amazing, she's prolific in her resin-making!  Let me share just one of the things she's doing with her left-over scraps of Dichro-ISH films:

"So, I had lots of little left over pieces of Dichro-ISH film after I cut my shapes for other projects.  I was looking at a pile of it thinking how pretty it would be to have something made with all those colors… so… I got myself a coffee bean grinder, threw all the scraps in there, and created some awesome looking sparkle."  I asked Stacy if the bits clogged her grinder, to which she replied, "I got the el cheapo deluxe Black & Decker grinder from the grocery store for like $17.  The bowl is stainless and I had no issues with clean-up what so ever.  It was an easy rinse with water.  A more industrious person could use a q-tip or low powered blower to get all the goodness out instead of the quick rinse with water."

Then she added the bits  in this bezel bracelet, and domed them up with Little Windows Brilliant Resin.  Stacy's signature is a small candy heart included in the resin, which is a sweet touch!

Here's a link to see Stacy's latest creations on  Facebook.

 

Great idea Stacy, thanks for sharing!
