Would like to share a little bit about my experimenting with resin and floral art.
Making resin coasters involves quite a lot of patience, waiting and perseverance.
You can only do so much in one day. Your work is dedicated to the medium, very fluid and versatile. You have to leave it to set and come back the next day. It is a commitment.
Peering my eyes carefully into the meadows in search of colourful and unusual varieties. Searching with excitement finding a new variety.
It gives me a chance to try and learn at least some of the many varieties of the island wildflowers.
So far I think I have come across:
Buttercup, Bluebells, Bitter Vetch, Creeping Speedwell, Wood Speedwell, Daisies, Dog Violets, Gorse, Goldilocks, Lesser Celandine, Marsh Marigold, Narrow Leaved Lungwort, Norfolk Comfrey Blue, Ramsons, Wood-sorrel, Yellow Sorrel, Along the paths to the Lighthouse: Wood Anemone, Primrose, Common Scurvy Grass
The process involves carefully placing them into separate envelopes. A 4 hard cover sketching notebook will be their home for the next few days.
Waiting with excitement until dried but hopefully kept their original colour. Fingers crossed.
Don’t leave them there for longer than between 3 to 7 days depending on the variety. Experiment and enjoy
