How To Thin Out Epoxy Resin

The best way to thin out ArtResin epoxy resin is to place the unopened bottles in a warm water bath before you mix. Warming it will alter the viscosity of ArtResin, making it more runny and greatly decreasing the bubbles. 

Do not attempt to add solvents to thin out epoxy resin: doing so will compromise the non-toxicity of the product and could cause curing issues by throwing off the delicate balance necessary to for the resin and hardener to catalzye.

💡TIP:  Be aware that warming ArtResin will decrease the working time by about 10-15 minutes, as well as the cure time.

💡TIP: Always warm your resin before you measure and mix: warming the resin after you've mixed it may cause it to cure immediately. Place your unopened bottles in warm water and thoroughly dry them before you open them - even a single drop of water can cause cloudiness in your cured resin.
