Keng Lye’s incredible 3D paintings made using painted layers of resin

on Facebook

This Singapore-based artist has managed to use a combination of acrylic paint and resin to effectively 3D print any water-dwelling creature imaginable. The process to create them, however, is complex. Based on the techniques of Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori, the creatures are built slowly by painting different sections of their bodies onto multiple layers of resin, this layering gives them a depth flat images can only dream of.

Keng adds a further step to this process by involving more components. The curve of the turtles’ shells are formed over eggshells and pebbles are the base for the octopus’ head. This way, he says, his aquarium of critters maintain their 3D impact from any angle

    1. Me too, for quite a long time. The artist is full of love and humor with his menagerie of beasts!
      But if you look good, they might believe that they are real and exist because the talent is there …

Artists deserve respect. Even if it bothers you and you don't like their work; refrain from negative opinions, non-constructive remarks. Opt for an objective analysis of the work as well as a good understanding of the author's intentions..Thx
