DIY Epoxy Resin Material Compatibility

We've made a simple Q&A for material compatibility and other helpful questions.

DIY Epoxy Material Applications

Except for materials that repel water, the DIY Epoxy Resin bonds well to every surface. Water-repellant materials include wax paper and plastics (including silicone). Some of the surfaces that the resin works well on include wood, photographs, inkjet prints, acrylic, oil paint that has completely dried, watercolor, spray paint, encaustic, ink, paper collage, oil pastel, sculpture, flowers, and rocks.
When pouring the resin, avoid applying it on loose surfaces. Substances like chalk pastels may mix into the resin after you pour it. You may need to use a sealant over some surfaces since surfaces like paper may absorb the resin instead of allowing it to settle on top. Experimentation before the actual pouring is the best thing to do.

Yes. You only need to wait for the paint to dry completely. The DIY Epoxy Resin sufficiently bond to the painting when the painting is cured.

Yes. The DIY Epoxy Resin can be used over acrylics. Please make sure that the painting is dried before applying a coat of epoxy resin.

Yes. The resin can be used over photographs to provide a finished, frameless modern look. Glossy paper is the most recommended as it gives the best result.

The DIY Epoxy Resin can be used over inkjet prints. Different brands and kinds of ink and paper will yield different results. Generally, glossy paper will give you better results than matte paper as it allows prevents the paper to absorb the resin.

Yes, as long as you wait for the paint to dry completely.

Yes, you can apply the DIY Epoxy Resin over watercolor. Non-gloss papers could absorb the resin, but watercolor does not. Ensure the painting is dried before applying an epoxy coat.

The DIY Epoxy Resin can be applied to wood to bring out its natural colors and grain. It serves as a protective coat to the wood, safekeeping it for years. You should always seal coat the wood before any poor; this will prevent bubbles in your pours coming from the porous surfaces of the wood.
