Step 1: Mixing the High Gloss Resin

Begin by reading the directions for the resin and mix according to the package in the 2 phase process.

Mix the resin and paint together until it is well blended and opaque.

I mixed up a bunch of yellow because I thought I'd like it under the sand. In future, I'd just use white or clear resin.

Step 3: Pour the Resin

Once all the resin is mixed with paint it is ready for pouring.

Begin with the beach line at the bottom. Use clear or white resin, not yellow like me!

Pour the darkest blue at the top edge, followed by the next darkest color.

Continue adding colors in order of the their color. Empty the entire cup of resin out in each section.

Then use the white resin in thin lines where every new color begins.

Step 4: Blow Resin Waves with Blow Dryer

Use a blow dryer or embossing tool to move the resin around carefully.

It swirls the resin together and makes little bubbles just like the ocean waves.

Step 5: Add Beach Sand

Once the resin is swirled to satisfaction, add handfuls of beach sand along the bottom edge. The sand will soak up the resin and become solidly adhered in place.

Pour handfuls of beach sand on the resin ocean paint pour.

Then let the resin piece sit overnight to dry and cure. Then turn it over to release any sand that has not stuck to the resin art. Believe me, there was only a few tiny pieces on mine. Now it's ready to hang up and enjoy the beach year round.
