How to Create Petri Art
It’s really easy to get started making Petri Art. You will need GlassCast 10 clear epoxy casting resin, a silicone mould of your choice and alcohol inks.
The inks are ready to use straight out of the 0.5oz bottles which have a handy dropper top.
Prepare the GlassCast 10 and pour into the silicone moulds
Leave to stand for around 20 minutes – this will allow any bubbles to pop and the resin to become less viscous which changes the flow of the ink in the resin.
The Blanco Blanco – White alcohol ink is very important in the petri technique. The white alcohol ink helps the other colours move around – or sink in the resin and is a must when using this technique to create the tubular effects like a mini coral reef!
Drip the ink into the resin at a ratio of 1 part white to 2 parts colour, the white is a heavier pigment and will push down the coloured ink.
The amount of ink you require will depend upon the effect you are trying to create, if you want to have areas of clear resin, use less ink.
Now leave to cure
