Beach Inspired Poured Resin Wall Art DIY
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing a Beach Inspired Poured Resin Wall Art DIY. Summertime is the time for vacation, travels and sitting on the sand. Beach inspired art is the perfect way to savor those sunny, Summer days year round. Save a handful of shimmering sand from the beach you visit to add to the beach inspired wall art.
- Wood Canvas
- Envirotex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Finish

- Acrylic Craft Paint in Navy, Turquoise, Aqua, Mint and White
- Five 5 oz. Paper Cups
- Beach Sand
- Hair Dryer
Start by reading the directions for the resin, it’s crucial to mix it properly. Mix 8 ounces of resin for a 12 inch square canvas. Begin with 4 ounces of resin and 4 ounces of hardener, mixed for 2 minutes. Then transfer the mixed resin into another cup and mix with a different stirring stick for 1 minute.
Next, pour some of the resin into 5 ounce cups, keeping some resin in the mixing cup as well. Add a marble size squeeze of paint in each cup.
I used yellow for the section of sand, but in hindsight, I’d keep it clear. Start by pouring out the contents of the cup all across the bottom of the canvas. The canvas is turned over to be used more like a tray.
Finally take a handful of beach sand and pour it out over the top of the clear (or yellow) resin. Fill the bottom section with a large beach front. Add seashells, sea glass, or other beach inspired trinkets.
