If I was a painter I'd be able to paint over a section of the work that went awry- it's not so easy with a piece like this one.
On Saturday I had to stop because I ran out of resin and silk and on Sunday I began to notice what polymer clayers would call "plaquing " in the resin- I realized that the resin had run below the fabric and pooled in a dark cavity of the clay underneath so it was only partially cured in the lower layers. After considering the issue last night I decided to warm the piece in the oven and cut away a section of clay to expose the uncured resin to the sunlight so it would cure. It was a good plan until the resin conducted heat onto the thin fabric/canvas layer and scorched the fabric to a deep toasty brown. One quarter of the piece is ruined.
Lesson Learned- Resin is fine in the oven but not if it can conduct heat to sensitive associated components.
I have a plan- and if it works out I think the piece will be better than before...wish me luck!
