resin coated woodcuts

I’ve been playing with pouring on some mdf woodcuts, and then adding a coat of resin – I love the look of that stuff, just not the price 😦 I find the resin really enhances the metallic paints and glitters I love to add in to my work. Some of these, the fish, dragon, dinosaur and maybe the seahorse ( I can’t remember, think I used it on those) have tiny shards of glass in to give the effect of scales. I do a pour then add details with paint when dry. The fish, foxes and surfer are about 8 – 10 inches across/high and the chicken and sea horse are 16-17 inches high. I’ll add hooks on the back so they can hang alone or maybe add then to a board or canvas, either plain white or black, or a poured one in complementary colours. I’m having great fun with these. I’ve got others, Scottie dogs, some cats, swans, and large and small fairies and horses.
