Clear Epoxy Resin Recommended Technique:
To warm the art resin you can submerge it into a bowl full of warm, not hot, water. Or place it a couple of feet from a heater on low for a couple of minutes.
Measure equally and accurately by volume, not weight. Adding too much of either the epoxy resin or the hardener will alter the chemical reaction and your resin will not cure properly.
Stir your equal amount of resin and hardener together for at least 3 minutes. Failure to stir properly will result in a sticky resin that will never cure.
Scrape the bottom and sides of your mixing vessel as you stir to ensure the entire mixture catalyzes and that there is no remaining unmixed art epoxy or hardener stuck to the sides that may prevent a proper cure.
If bubbles appear, don’t worry—you can get rid of them using a torch later.
When you pour the crystal clear epoxy resin out of the mixing vessel, avoid scraping the sides in case there is any unmixed resin or hardener stuck to the sides – if this gets mixed into your catalyzed resin, you may end up with soft sticky spots in your cured resin.
