Castin’ Craft Clear Casting Resin 32 oz
Resin casting is an exciting and fun craft that allows you to embed or encase almost any object in crystal clear plastic. Coins, shells, rocks, dried flowers, butterflies and insects are just a few of the examples of embedment possibilities. This convenient new package includes catalyst in a clear bubble top cap. >br />
Single Layer Casting: READ ALL WARNINGS AND ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE STARTING. The addition of catalyst to resin starts a chemical reaction, creating heat which cures (hardens) the resin. For best results, measure resin into a graduated unwaxed cup and add the appropriate amount of catalyst (see chart below). DO NOT add excessive catalyst, as castings may fracture. MIX THOROUGHLY for approximately 60 seconds, scraping sides and bottom of mixing container. Pour into mold and allow to harden completely before removing from mold. Curing (hardening) time is dependent upon amount of catalyst used, thickness of the casting, room temperature and resin temperature, humidity and amount of colorants used. DO NOT RETURN CATALYZED RESIN TO THE CAN. KEEP CAN TIGHTLY CAPPED WHEN NOT IN USE.
Multiple Layer Casting (Embedding): Embedding objects in plastic resin involves making a casting of 2 or more layers with embedments sandwiched between the layers. Generally, you work in reverse when embedding objects. The first layer you pour becomes the top or face of your casting. Pour first layer of catalyzed resin into mold. Allow to gel until firm enough to support the embedments (20-30 minutes). Catalyze second batch of resin and stir. To avoid trapping air, dip embedment's into the catalyzed resin; set in place face down on the first gelled layer. Pour balance of catalyzed resin over embedments If embedment's are not yet covered or if you want a colored background, pour a third clear or colored layer after the second layer has gelled. Embedment's can be placed in several levels to create a floating appearance. After final layer has been poured, allow casting to harden completely before removing from the mold.
