Here's how to go from your front door to your first pour ... in 5 easy steps!
Unbox your 10 Gallon Pro Bulk Kit.
Set it on your desired work surface right side up, like this ....
TIP: Make sure your work surface is strong enough to support the weight of the containers - they're heavy, about 40lbs each! You also need to ensure your work surface is wide enough so that when you're ready to pour, you're able to sit your containers on their sides, like this ....
Remove the plug from the cap, using an adjustable wrench.
Firmly screw in the spigot supplied.
Next, you'll need to make a vent hole - this allows air to pass through so that your ArtResin flows easily out of the spigot.
Unscrew the cap covering the vent hole.
Insert a nail into the recessed area and give it a light tap or two with a hammer to open up the vent hole.
( By the way ... don't you just love our ArtResin pink hammer? )
Set the container on its side to pour.
IMPORTANT: Once you've finished pouring and have turned off the spigot, please remember to turn the container back right side up to avoid any unwanted drips!!
TIP: Always keep latex gloves, paper towels and rubbing alcohol handy :)
As careful as we might be, accidents and drips happen to us all.
Here are a couple of things that we find helpful:
- wear latex gloves to prevent sticky fingers!
- lay a vinyl shower curtain over your work surface, and on the floor directly under your spigot. Allow any resin spills or drips to dry and just peel them right off!
- fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol. Spray it on paper towel to wipe up drips, sticky surfaces and to wipe off your spigot once your done pouring.
IMPORTANT: Don't use rubbing alcohol to clean your hands.
Rubbing alcohol is great at breaking down epoxy resin, yes, but it also enables your skin to absorb it - and you don't want that! Save it for cleaning your tools and work surface, but keep it well away from your bare skin when working with resin.
