GOLDEN HOUR | 24 X 24 Inch Square Resin Painting by Tiffani Buteau with Metallic Gold Abstracts

The Making of GOLDEN HOUR

This abstract was one I created dynamically and in the moment. Resin cures quickly so when I make dynamic paintings I have to move fast. Working with a large blade and several pigmented cups of resin, I intermixed the tones by pouring them, and used the 16 inch blade to pull them across the canvas, creating beautiful waterfall-like effects on the vertical lines, and speckled with metallics effects on the other areas. After this, I applied gold lines that give it structure and form, a whisper of image and composition to an abstractscape. Finally, a clear layer of resin went over that a few days after. The clear layer pulls in light and lets it suspend and dance overhead, setting the gold tones aglow and deepening the richness of the dark blue. It also creates an “infinity pool” effect where the resin domes and meets the hardwood sides that are hand sanded and oiled to highlight their natural beauty,

What is Resin? Resin is commonly known as epoxy. Epoxy resin has a brilliant glass-like finish and is used for its durability in surfboards, boats, even counters, and flooring! I use similar techniques to the surfboard crafters where I mix the two parts resin, starting a 1-hour timer I must work quickly and expertly off of hundreds of hours of experience to pigment the resin, pour it, and painting with it using a knife and a blowtorch before it starts to permanently cure. Each layer needs 72 hours to fully cure and for depth, I use multiple layers.
