Medium Cast Polyester Resin

E.mail Enid Tidwell
Enid E. Tidwell, is a native of New Mexico, brings a Southwestern fascination with light and color to her cast resin sculptures.   The Southwest’s intense sunlight makes the pieces come alive. The cast resin sculptures capture the natural light entering the concave surfaces.    The reflective qualities of the material are intensified with the use of lighted pedestals, or in some cases, neon.   The sensuous surfaces invite the viewer to touch as well as experience them visually.   Color and transparency are compelling reasons for the artist to use this unusual material.   Polyester resin is a thermosetting viscous liquid plastic which is cast into molds and dyed the desired color.   A catalyst hardens the material.   When the piece is unmolded it can be shaped with power tools and then sanded with wet-and-dry sandpaper.   A final polish with a linen buff and fine abrasives gives it the fine transparent, living quality.
