Prepping Your Workspace
Find a well-ventilated area to set up your resin pour. Protect your table; we recommend silicone mats for easy resin removal. Your work area should be between 72 - 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
Keep your materials around your workspace for easy access.You'll need:
- Protective Eyewear
- Respirator (For non-ventilated workspaces)
- Mixing sticks
- Clear cups
- Heat gun or lighter
- Silicone mold
Calculate the amount of resin you'll need for your project. Pour equal parts resin and hardener by volume into separate cups. Combine into one cup and mix for 3 to 5 minutes. If you don't have a pressure pot, be extra careful to avoid mixing air into your resin. To be sure you've mixed your resin completely, pour your resin mix into a new cup and mix for 30 more seconds.
After mixing your resin and hardener, add your additives and pour into your mold. If you see bubbles, use a torch or lighter in a sweeping motion 6 inches away from your resin to pop bubbles. Or, simply place your mold in your pressure pot and pressurize. The Big Reveal Your dice can be removed from the mold after 24 hours. Full cure occurs at 72 hours, so we recommend leaving your dice in a container or well ventilated area before sanding during this time.
Resin can cause allergic reactions, so please be sure to use all precautions listed here and/or on your own resin facts sheet. Unmixed resin is not environmentally safe, so be sure to dispose of any uncured resin properly. Reach out to your local hazardous waste facility for instructions regarding disposal. If resin makes contact with your skin, be sure to wash it all off thoroughly with soap and water.
ALWAYS Contact your doctor or emergency care professionals if you are having any reactions, ingest, get resin into/on your body.
To reduce your environmental impact, we recommend using reusable silicone cups to mix & reusing resin scraps in your projects.
