Missouri- Crystal started practicing with fluid art when she uncovered the magic and beauty of resin art.
What is resin?
For those who don't know what resin is, resin is a solid that forms when combining two equal parts of a clear epoxy resin and combining it with a hardener to become a solid. Artists that work with resin, then pour the completed mixture into a mold (most common made out of silicone). They can then add any material of their choosing to decorate it to match their vision.
After a period of time, the artist can removed the final product fro
m the mold once it has been cured for the required amount of time. The resin item will have a high gloss surface.
"Over time I have worked very hard to learn new skills and perfect them to my best ability," Crystal said.
