Matter painting

Matter painting is a technique which blends thick impasto pains with cement, mud, sand or shells. The term first emerged in the 1950s, describing the works of Belgian and Dutch painters who focused on painting materials and the different ways paint could be used.

Resin

Resin can be made from both natural and synthetic processes. The natural version is from pine sap, and the man-made kind is a dense and easily molded form of plastic. Many sculptures are made from resin, and resin can make paint colors vivid.
