CADENCE OF DESCENT- Resin pour painting by Tiffani Buteau. Large: 18″ x 48″. Oceanic / Nebula Abstract Painting. Epoxy Resin on Birchwood


Working on a bigger than ever panel, Tiffani created a sweeping epic of an abstract that falls in form somewhere between cascading depths of oceans and burgeoning stellar dust of a forming nebula. Using nearly a gallon of epoxy resin, she worked in layers, each taking 72 hours to fully cure. Each layer overlaying the one before it, in spots translucent, develops a depth that rivals sculpture more than painting, yet remaining thin (1/8 inch) and pristine in a glass-like finish that pulls in the light and illuminates each detail magnificently. Tiffani’s technique is built for display in a variety of lightings, each complementing and revealing aspects of the painting in its own way.

What is Resin?

Resin is like a liquid glass. It is a two-part epoxy that once mixed, starts to harden within the hour.

I mix resin with various pigments and then work with a blowtorch and knife to paint these scenes.

Some paintings have up to 5 layers of resin, each taking 72 hours to fully cure. You can see through the layers like looking through glass or water. Once cured, it is brilliantly shiny like glass and also robustly durable like a countertop. Resin is so durable it is even used to make surfboards using similar processes as to how I create my paintings.
