How To Paint
Any tips how to achieve that goo slimy effect with resin?
I have found that using a syringe to put the resin into the traps is a lot easier than trying to pour it. It can be very messy when it goes where you don't want it. Very Sticky stuff
We use a two-part resin that you should be able to find in most craft stores. Something like this for example. Follow the directions, which in the case of the above product is to mix equal parts of A and B together thoroughly. (I use a plastic shot glass and popsicle stick).
Once mixed well together, I dip a toothpick ever so slightly into Citadel Moot Green paint and then mix a tiny amount into the resin and stir to work the colour through (you can try all sorts of colour combos, this is just what I like to do for acid traps). Keep adding tiny specks of paint until you’re happy with the colour of the resin. My preference is to have it a slimy green colour but not so opaque that you won’t be able to see the detail on the floor of the traps such as bones etc. A good way to monitor the opacity is you want to still be able to see the popsicle stick in the resin as you’re stirring.
Once you’re happy with the colour of the resin, pour into the pre-painted traps. Pour slowly and allow the resin to work its way around, use the popsicle stick to help push it around where it needs to go (eg behind shield). You can run a naked flame from a lighter over the top of the resin to remove any tiny bubbles that might form.
Leave on a level and dust-free surface for the manufacturer recommended timeframe to allow the resin to cure (usually at least 24 hours in our experience).
Hope this helps.
