Buddha painting (mixed media in progress)

Did this Buddha painting a few days ago. I used Bird grit for the texture and acrylic paint, its not quite finished yet I'm trying to get hold of some resin which i want to pore over the top to hopeful give it a glass like finish i'd like it to be about 1/2 in think, but we'll see i will probably muck about with it some more and it will end up completely different.

Thats awesome, cant wait to see it finished. If you cant get some resin Krylon do a spray acrylic coating thats really good.
