Epoxy Resin is a versatile material that’s used in a wide variety of arts and crafts. It is created by mixing two components together, which react with each other and harden over several hours. The resulting cured resin is a hard, sturdy, and see through material, which makes it perfect for encasing and protecting your artwork. An epoxy coating will last longer than pretty much any other type of coating and an adequetly cured epoxy coating by itself is scratch resistant due to the composition of its ingredients. Almost any artwork can be coated in resin, including oil paintings, acrylic and watercolour paintings, even artwork made with alcohol ink or gold gilded objects. Resin can also be used to protect clay sculptures and models.
