How thick can I apply ArtResin?

  • How Thick Can I Apply ArtResin Epoxy Resin?
  • ArtResin was designed as a surface coating for artwork and formulated to be poured in thin applications. It naturally self-levels to 1/8" or 3 mm. You can apply ArtResin as thick as you want, as long as you pour in multiple 1/8" coats.
  • You have two choices when pouring multiple layers. The first is to pour the initial layer, torch out the bubbles, cover and wait 3-5 hours until the ArtResin reaches a gel-like stage. At this point, pour on the next 1/8" layer, torch out bubbles, cover, wait 3-5 hrs and repeat until you reach the height you desire. This method is handy when pouring into a mold or a dam.
  • The second option is to allow the first layer to dry, then give the piece an overall light sanding and pour on the next 1/8" layer. Torch out bubbles, cover and let this layer dry.  Repeat these steps as many times as you'd like.

  • Keep in mind that our recommendation of a 72 hr cure time is based on a single layer. If you pour thicker than this, it could take longer to fully cure.
