Painting the resin, Ralphie’s studio tour part 4

Ralphie peeking from behind the resin piecesPsssssst…hello….shhhhhh……..Right now I’m hiding out behind an assortment of work-in-progress hand-painted resin pieces in Christine’s studio. There are a lot of pieces that need to be painted and I wanted to be as quiet as possible so Christine can focus her attention on painting all of the details onto each of her cast and cleaned resin pieces.

There’s a giraffe sculpture in the background and a couple of writing pens in the foreground. Every spare inch of Christine’s workspace is utilized. It does get a bit crowded in here.

Unpainted and painted resin piecesRemember when all of her pieces were a white color? Now they are being transformed into bright and colorful pieces. This is the part of the process where each piece comes to life and their own unique “personality” emerges. Christine loves this stage in the process. Seeing all of the bright vibrant colors makes her workspace look so cheerful.
