Resin experiment continued…

When I went upstairs to check on the new Resin Obsession fast set resin last night, it had gone really bendy, like it still hadn’t cured yet. I can only imagine I didn’t stir it well enough, so at the minute I can’t tell the difference between this and normal epoxy resins. I will give it a go again and time it in the heat box once I have a bulb for it and then we will really see.

However, taking it out early did create something you can only do with epoxy, rather than polyester that I am used to- The bendiness meant I could fold it over and give it it’s own “bail” . I left this overnight and it finished setting that way, meaning no drilling needed, just slip a piece of cord through and voila! I think I have another tutorial to write!
