Art is undefined and can be created from anything and everything. It’s exactly like our universe- denser, deeper and infinite. The more we try to achieve perfections, the more attentive we get into it. It’s like a black hole, and the thirst for reaching the core never ends.
Humans have explored various forms of arts and created masterpieces using the rarest of the elements present in the earth’s crust. From various flora and fauna to bringing glass elements into shape and life, humans have touched and experimented with almost all the horizons, when it comes to creativity and exploration. One such art form is Resin Art.
What is RESIN?
“In polymer chemistry and materials science, Resin is a solid or highly viscous substance of plant or synthetic origin that is typically convertible in polymers. Resins are usually mixtures of organic compounds.”
Epoxy resins are a two-component system consisting of resin and hardener. By mixing the two components, a chemical reaction takes place so that the liquid resin gradually hardens to a solid plastic. The result is a high-gloss and clear surface.
Resin art is a functional yet unconventional form of art. Resin is thick and viscous in nature and adds extra shine and gloss to the final product. Apart from its creative and artistic nature, it has got an utility value too.
Resin is an extremely versatile element, when heated and dried, can be moulded into various structures and shapes, hence adding an utility value to it. Anything from a small hair pin to a huge dining table can be made from resin. Worldwide, it is a very popular form of art which is put to various uses like home decor, gifting, interior designing, jewellery making, etc.
Resin Art in India
As compared to other parts of the world, resin art is at a very starting phase in India. The resin industry in our country is very limited. But as the world is becoming a global village at a fast rate, this industry is also growing rapidly. Now, we have many artists and home based entrepreneurs who are contributing to the Resin art industry.
Vidhi Kapadia is one such Resin artist, who has recently started her own studio come shop, where she creates magic from resin. Vidhi has always been an artist at heart and even though she graduated in Finance, her passion for art never left her.After trying out many art forms, she came across Resin art. Slowly and steadily she started working more with it and realised that the more she did it, the more she wanted to do. After about practising for a year, she decided to put her art as a brand for the world to see and buy.
