Abstract 'Red Lunar' by Shane McCoubrey gets entered into Resin8 competition and we get a rare insight into how these stunning works are created..... " Red Lunar" is an artwork based on many layers of ice millions of... years old moving over a planets surface ....with just parts of mountain tops thorough the ice. It is done by layers of Eli-Chem clear resin over a base of silver paper, on to which the red dyes and inks on the silver paper form the base. Then the resin goes on, is burnt in places. When dried it creates bumps and a mountain-top look. Then sprayed in silver or colour to remove black burnt look Finally another layer of resin is added with tinted powders to make the flow look like a glacier in resin.
