Kawtar from Inkandpaper Kz has been a resin artist for almost a year, but since her very young age, she has been passionate about art and uses it as a way to express herself.
Resin Art caught her attention as it is an abstract form of art where she was able to incorporate different painting techniques and play with various textures. Some other form of resin art she enjoys is making coasters, ring dishes, trays and centrepieces from resins as she creates them from scratch which is very satisfying and unique.
Her favorite part about resin art is that she can create something out of scratch but also its fluidity. The fluidity of the resin makes it stand out from any other type of art. For her, when you create your artwork with resin, its constant movement is a key in achieving your final design!
