Collection: Resin Lust - Coating and Casting


Measure the Resin and Hardener

  1. Measuring: Place a measuring cup on the scales and tare it to zero. Carefully pour the resin into the cup until it reaches 100g. Do the same with the hardener in another cup until it reaches 50g, maintaining a 2:1 ratio.
  2. Precision: Double-check the weights to ensure accuracy. Incorrect ratios can lead to issues with curing, such as a tacky or brittle finish.

Mix Resin and Hardener

  1. Mixing: Pour the hardener into the resin cup. Using a wooden stir stick, mix slowly but thoroughly to avoid introducing air bubbles.
  2. Consistency: Stir for at least 3-5 minutes, scraping the sides and bottom of the cup. The mixture should be clear and uniform without streaks.

Pouring the Resin

Casting Procedure:

  1. Pouring: Slowly pour the resin into the mold to avoid creating air bubbles.
  2. Fill Level: Ensure the mold is filled to the appropriate level, considering any shrinkage that may occur during curing.

Coating procedure

Coating Procedure:

  1. Application: Pour the resin onto the surface, such as a tabletop.
  2. Spreading: Use a resin spreader to distribute the resin evenly across the surface, ensuring complete coverage without pooling.

Removing Bubbles

  1. Heat Application: After pouring, gently pass a heat gun or torch over the surface of the resin. The heat helps to pop the bubbles.
  2. Technique: Keep the heat source moving to avoid overheating any area, which can cause the resin to burn or warp.
  3. Safety: Ensure proper ventilation and wear protective gear when using heat tools.
