Crystal, Colour and Pearl Finishes

How to express the waves of an angry sky, the drop of a stone in a pond, the swarm of insects in the mist of the morning or the reflection of sun on the ground... The painter is a poet and without mediums, he cannot create and share. The GEDEO Resin range increases these possibilities.

Simple and translucent

Precious stones, marble, glass paste... The effects made possible by the GEDEO Resin range are multiple and very easy to achieve. With a two-component epoxy resin system, two parts resin to one part of hardener, Gédéo resins are perfect for all facets of MIXED MEDIA®: inclusions, casting of objects, collage work… or simply "poured" to create quality abstract art. They also possess the elegance of knowing how to become transparent... a good protective coating to ensure the sustainability of an artwork!
