SEAS OF CIONINE
SEAS OF CIONINE is an imaginative seascape of another planet, CIONINE, where soft lavender skies churn above roaring tempestuous seas. The softness of the sky’s tones contrasts with the deep neutral shades of the water for an enveloping scene. The medium of resin allows Tiffani to build on each layer for a depth that is unparalleled by other painting mediums. As an example, you can see the shadows of water spraying in the air above the waves to the layer below.
- Size: 12″ x 48″
- Sides: Oregon Poplar wood, Danish-oiled Natural wood grain
- Materials: UV-Resistant, eco-friendly tinted epoxy resin, multilayered for extraordinary depth
WHAT IS RESIN PAINTING?
You can think of epoxy resin as a sort of liquid glass once it is mixed. After Tiffani mixes the two parts, the clock starts, leaving just about one hour to color the resin, pour it, and paint with it. It is about the consistency of honey while in this state. So she uses a knife and heat implements, like a blow torch, to paint these scenes. At the one-hour mark, it sets into its final form. Each layer takes about 72 hours to fully cure into a brilliant and extremely durable glass-like finish. Most paintings have several layers, creating a depth of field unrivaled by other mediums. You can see through the transparencies of certain areas of these layers to those below making the process almost sculptural. Tiffani is known for using this technique to create her signature immersive look of oceans and nebulae.
