How To Resin A Puzzle


  1. Select a puzzle you adore and put it together.
    💡TIP: For best results, choose a high-quality puzzle with thick, sturdy pieces, a snug fit, and a securely affixed image. Lesser quality puzzles will absorb the resin, leading to dark spots along the seams.

  2. Seal the puzzle with a brush-on sealant. Use a foam brush to reach in between the puzzle pieces and along the outer edges. Allow the sealant to dry according to the label instructions.
    💡TIP: Applying 2 coats ensures complete puzzle sealing. Allow the sealant to dry between coats.

  3. Flip your sealed puzzle over and use a foam brush to apply a thin coat of adhesive, ensuring the back is completely covered. Mount the puzzle onto a board cut to size. Lay a piece of paper on top to protect the puzzle and roll a brayer over the entire surface to ensure the puzzle bonds to the board, paying particular attention to the edges. Allow the adhesive to dry thoroughly.

  4. Once the adhesive has dried, prop your piece up off of the work surface using plastic stands.

  5. Wearing gloves, measure and mix the ArtResin according to the instructions.💡 TIP: If you're not sure how much ArtResin you need, enter the dimensions of your piece into our Resin Calculator.

  6. Pour the resin in the center of your artwork and use a flat-edged spreading tool to guide the resin over the entire surface. 
    💡 TIP: You can either nudge the resin right up to the edges without going over so that it sits neatly on top of your piece, or you can allow the resin to coat the sides. 

  7. Use an Artist’s Torch to remove bubbles.

  8. Cover and allow the resin to cure. After 24 hours, the resin will be dry to the touch and fully cured after 72 hours.
