Tide Pools

“Tide Pools” is one of Tiffani’s most vibrant pieces yet. She worked in layers to create a sense of looking down into a colorful tide pool. Using layers of resin for the bottom, Tiffani then built on that layer with a flow technique of alcohol ink for incredible depth. Acting as the water’s surface another layer went on covering the two below it with a slightly blue layer of resin and soft hints of rippled white waves. The ocean greens and blues really pop with the glimmers of metallics and warmer hues. (Sides are lacquered finished blond wood grain)

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 these layers.
