If you’re an artist or a crafter, it’s guaranteed that at some point you looked at a project and thought, “hey, I could do that!” and then had it… well, not really work out as you’d hoped.
Such was the story of my Tuesday when I attempted the popular “fish in a bag” Pinterest pin, which I thought I would then be blogging about today! It started off promising enough, but I detect my downfall probably started when I overfilled my bag with resin. After I realised there was no way to close up the top without it overflowing, I thought that I could just squish the extra out the top and…. Well, that somehow I’d do something magically that would make it work out. Long story short, the entire bag (and my hands) were covered in resin and there was no coming back. The bag ended up looking less than impressive and I spent a good 10 minutes cleaning up my skin.
Please enjoy the slideshow of my failure!
As you may have observed from the photos, I started in the daylight but worked on that fish until sundown, but therein lies the challenge of working with resin. There is no ctrl+z.
After the disappointment, I decided to head out to the river the next morning and take a day to chill and get re-inspired. While I was out there, I took some photos and wanted to share them here. If you like any of them, feel free to use them as stock photos, for phone backgrounds, or whatever you want! I would appreciate a credit back to my website, http://www.MeandrousArt.com if being used for anything other than personal use.
I also have a small number of ruin-porn-y photographs available for free download with print-ready resolution available on DeviantArt. You can print these for yourself, although if you’re in the position to support independent artists, DeviantArt offers the images as photo prints, canvas art, and more which I’ll get a small cut from. You’re welcome to use the images for any personal use, but again, please provide a credit back to http://www.MeandrousArt.com for other uses.
