Every artist wonders where to find inspiration. This question can be answered in various ways, as each person has their own unique source of inspiration. Let me share the story of one of my resin artworks and how I sought inspiration for it.

First Steps with Craft Resin Epoxy Resin

I found myself faced with a dilemma: what to create using Craft Resin epoxy resin. I firmly believe that if you lack inspiration, there's no need to force creativity. Sometimes, the best course of action is to take a break, go for a walk, or watch a movie to clear your mind and distract yourself from the pressure of creating.

Seeking Inspiration for Resin Art

If you’re still determined to find inspiration, start by taking small steps. Visit an art exhibition or a fair, or explore platforms like Pinterest or Instagram for ideas related to resin art and epoxy resin projects.However, there’s another approach to finding inspiration that I often choose for myself: experimentation! Experiment with new materials like craft resin, techniques, or try combining elements you've never used before. This method not only sparks creativity but also leads to exciting new discoveries in your art.

My Resin Art Journey: Ocean Inspiration

Now, let me tell you about my painting, which I mentioned earlier.

Browsing Pinterest for ocean-themed resin art inspiration

To find inspiration, I began by browsing beautiful photos on Pinterest and discovered my current passion: the ocean. Living near the ocean, every visit to the beach is an adventure for me. The ocean is a place where I can relax and recharge my creative energy.

After finding my visual inspiration, I went to gather materials for my project. I visited a craft store and purchased beautiful stones to incorporate into my piece. To further immerse myself in the ocean theme, my family and I visited an aquarium. The vibrant marine life and serene environment fueled my eagerness to create an ocean-themed painting using Craft Resin epoxy resin.

Creating with Craft Resin Epoxy Resin

In the evening, I examined my collection of blue paints. Still inspired by the aquarium's mesmerizing scenes, I began by painting the first layer of waves using acrylic paint. The next day, I moved on to the epoxy resin stage using Craft Resin.
