  • What is the working time for the Designer Art Resin?

    • Hey Angie, great question! The working time is typically around 30-45 minutes before the epoxy begins to gel. Let me know if you have any other questions! I’d love to help. Have a fantastic day!

  • Is this resin an 1 to 1 part ratio? or do i need a diferent Ratio? i cant find instructions anywhere. the Original Pamphlet says 100% part A and 83% part B by volume but i’m not sure how that measures out.

  • Hi! What viscosity is your art resin? Do you recommend warming each part prior to mixing?

      Hey Freddie, great question!

      The best way I can think to answer it is to compare it with our other products..

      Our Deep Pour Epoxies are about 1,000cps while our Table Top Epoxy is around 14,000cps.

      Designer Art Resin is 7,000cps, making it essentially the middle man between those 2 different formulations of epoxy.

      So, thinner than honey, but thicker than water? 🤔

      If you are concerned that the resin may be too thick of a viscosity before mixing, you can always warm the bottles of epoxy up in a water bath to around 110-130F to thin the resin.

      I would make sure to let the bottles rest so that the internal temperature of the epoxy is not too hot once you go to mix the A&B sides together, as that can have adverse effects on your cure:

        • Overheating
        • Cracking
        • Yellowing
        • Shrinking
        • Bubbling

      Hope that helps!
