Resining my heron

Resining my heron

Having primed my hardboard heron, covered it in layers upon layers of tiny pieces all working together to create some aspect of heron spirit the time came to resin the heron. I actually did a series of layers 4 working different sections at a time til the thing was level and shiny.

Much gratitude to the Curators and other artists of this fantastic and fun experience.

I thoroughly obsessed and enjoyed working on my heron . 

I hope you get a chance to see the Herons at Arts East and after Blakely Hall.
