Resin digital and acrylic color

 Click image to enlarge!
 I made my first three Resin pieces. As I am not the girly type so I used forest items.It is moss, lichen and acorns.  You might remember I tried several ways as I wanted to preserve the beautiful colors in the acorns. This seem to work.
I used a silicon icecube form for this but was a bit disturbed as it buckled. Sides are not straight. And there are bubbles in the first one but with tiny mosses and lichen it was expected and actually fitting.

 This is one of my chain pulls. I edited it a lot in Photoshop, I copied the white pull and made an Extrude of the form. Then put it back on the background careful to cover the real pull. It worked :) :)

A while back I bought a set of acrylic colors. As I am quite unfamiliar with them I decided to open them up and see how they work on different papers. 2 white papers and the black carbon.
It is quite obvious what colors can be used on the black carbon paper. And probably on black canvas.

The tubes was filled to the limit and color burst out when probing the hole. I had to go and get a safety needle to prick just a tiny hole in them. I liked the burnt sienna a lot :)
