Epoxy Flow Technique using Unicorn SPiT
Although I love to change up projects it seems I always come back to the epoxy flow technique using Unicorn SPiT. One of the things I love about this technique is that it is fun to watch the transformation as the colors blend together while it is drying.
I’ve seen a lot of artist use the dirty pour technique, but I have not had much success with dirty pours. Mine really do come out “dirty” (muddy). However with the epoxy flow technique I have a little more control over where the colors go. Admittedly, it is not a 100% control but enough for me.
I am in the process of creating a video tutorial on the epoxy flow technique which will be launched in the very near future. But until then below is a video of me doing one of my canvas’ using the epoxy flow technique. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter and/or follow me on Facebook so that you can be among the first to have access to the tutorial.
I know that this video below isn’t officially a tutorial but I am sure several of you artists will give this technique a shot after watching it. For those of you that do, here are a few tips and cautionary notes:
- I personally love Famowood because of it’s clarity and minimal air bubbles.
- If using large canvas’ be sure to add support to the underneath side of the canvas. Epoxy is heavy and will cause sagging.
- Be sure to follow the mixing instructions of your epoxy exactly! I can’t stress this enough…do not attempt to shortcut the directions!
- Be sure to protect your surroundings very well.
- Keep your canvas away from the edge of your table…allow for ample run off of epoxy.
