Q & A

I hope to be able to answer all your questions here. If you have more please feel free to reach out at mi@fluidartbykimi.com

Q: What medium is this?

A: Good question! I'm not really sure. Basically it's just a huge science experiment and I feel like a mad scientist every time I paint. I use epoxy resin. Basically, it's a 2 part liquid glue (or liquid plastic) that when mixed together becomes solid. I have about a 30 minute window to add color and heat to create seascapes.

Q: How did you find out about resin?

A: When I was living in Cosby Tennessee I started pour paintings with acrylic paint. My instagram explore page soon became flooded with everything art and one day a resin video popped up. I immediately was mesmerized by it and watched every video I could find about it. I had to get my hands on it and I fell in love.

Q: Is this your job?

A: Basically? I feel weird calling it a job because it's not your typical job. But I make money doing it lol so I guess so. I'll probably forever refer to it as my hobby lol. I've picked up a few nannying/babysitting gigs, and recently started doing Sketchup designs for a woodworker, but other than that I paint the days away.

Q: What do you use for your color?

A: I get lots of questions about the products I use, if you head over to my blog I post all about it down to the heat gun and brands of paint I use :) 

Q: What Resin do you use on your pieces?

A: I'm going to point you in the same direction as the question above, my blog post talks all about it. Recently I've been given opportunities to try multiple brands of resin and give feedback. I have found some that I like and I'll share those with you soon!

Q: What do you do other than paint?

A: Nothing. Lol. I love to go boating and wake surf! I love watching the sunsets. My boyfriend is teaching me how to fish and also play tennis! I like to embroider! I recently moved, so I am super into diy home projects right now.
