How to frame (Instagram) photos with Resin

Epoxy resin is the perfect way to protect photos forever!

Art resin gorgeous shiny finish artwork

In this post, I'll show you how to take your favorite photos on Instagram and display them easily and beautifully... no glasses or distracting frames needed. Instagram is by far my favorite social media site – it's all pictures and very little text, so you get to know what someone is posting in an efficient way!

ArtResin's gorgeous work of art with a glossy finish You will need:

  • A wooden panel (preferably one with raised edges to hold the resin)
  • Your chosen print, sized to fit your panel
  • ArtResin epoxy resin
  • Something to mix in
  • A pair of nitrile gloves
  • A ladle
  • Paint (optional, to paint the sides of the panel... any kind of paint will do, I used spray paint)
  • A level to ensure your piece is perfectly horizontal
  • A gas burner/brulee burner to remove bubbles

So I printed this image on in a size of 20 x 20cm. The panel I was going to use was also 20 x 20cm (so the print would fit perfectly), and I had spray painted the edges of it black beforehand. Using just a regular glue stick, I glued the print to the panel and pressed it firmly. Then I made sure the whole piece was smooth and I mixed up a batch of ArtResin. Make sure the entire piece is level before pouring ArtResin

Mixing ArtResin is easy:

Using gloves, pour only equal parts from either bottle into a mixing cup. Stir well (for 3 solid minutes). Then pour it over your piece and spread it out! You don't have to worry about the resin ruining your print; in fact, it protects your pressure. ArtResin self-levels extremely well, so I found that there wasn't much I had to do to get the resin to go where I wanted it. I basically just pushed it gently into the corners and that was it.

Mixing ArtResin is simple

the bubbles will pop on their own Now that you've got everything covered, you'll notice that there will probably be some bubbles in the resin. ArtResin has a degassing agent (aka bubble release) in it to promote bubble popping, so many of the bubbles will pop on their own. Those that do not appear on their own can be easily eliminated by quickly running a gas torch over them. It's honestly so satisfying to see them disappear so easily!

And that's all!

So at this point I just covered the whole piece with a cardboard to make sure no dust or possibly any fly would settle in the resin before it dried completely. I left it overnight, and in the morning I had a gorgeous shiny finish on my favorite Insta pic :)

NOTE: For this project I used a wood panel that had a 3mm wood lip around the entire edge. This type of panel is great to use resin in because it contains the resin without running over the sides. You can use any type of panel you want; usually I use a regular canvas with no lip, and I just let the resin run over the sides and spread it out the same way I would on top. If you are using a panel where the resin runs over the sides, be sure to lift your piece off the table so the ArtResin doesn't stick your panel to the table!
