We are SO excited to bring you all this video. Ever since we published our Ocean Resin Coffee Table video, we’ve gotten a lot of questions about specific techniques, etc. in making a resin ocean. And the fact is that most resin ocean videos are sped up (like our coffee table video) because the process is pretty slow and doesn’t make great entertainment.

However, our goal wasn’t as much to entertain as to educate, which is why we decided to make a real time resin ocean pouring video to help people learn this awesome fluid art technique. 

For this project, we picked up a mirrored tray at Goodwill, grabbed some dock cleats from our stash to make the handles and went to work doing our best real-time resin ocean pour.
