How do I measure and stir properly?

  • How To Measure and Mix Resin And Hardener
  • Measure equally and accurately by volume, not weight. Adding too much of either the resin or the hardener will alter the chemical reaction and your resin will not cure properly.
  • Stir equal amounts of resin and hardener together for at least 3 minutes. Not stirring properly will result in a sticky resin that will never cure. 
  • Scrape the bottom and sides of the mixing container as you stir to ensure everything is incorporated. Unmixed resin or hardener stuck to the sides can prevent a proper cure.  
  • If bubbles appear, don’t worry—you can take care of them after pouring with an Artist's Torch
  • When you pour the resin out of the mixing container, avoid scraping the sides. Unmixed resin or hardener stuck to the sides can get scraped out into your catalyzed resin and can cause soft sticky spots.
