How does epoxy resin work? (buy silicone flower mold)
Epoxy resins come in two parts: the resin and the hardener. When the two parts are mixed, a chemical reaction occurs that causes heat production. This heat changes the epoxy from a liquid to a solid. It mixes epoxy resin, like other resins in a specific ratio or amount of resin to hardener. There is a pot time to the resin (a period that the resin is still liquid enough to work with) versus curing time (the time needed for the epoxy to completely harden). Each epoxy resin is different! For proper curing, the resin needs to be mixed thoroughly in the correct proportions. (buy silicone flower mold)
If we want to include things in a resin:
To prevent discoloration and water stains, seal both sides and edges of the image. This is especially important if the image is printed on an ink-jet printer. Allow the paper and sealant to dry completely before covering the images with resin.
Glue the image to the surface to prevent “floating” and possibly trapping air bubbles which may show up later. Let the adhesive dry completely before adding resin.
Resin magnifies images and makes them clear. Make sure your paper is exactly the way you want it. (buy silicone flower mold)
Do you have any resin pouring tips?
Apply the resin a little at a time. Depending on the resin, it can pour quickly. Pouring from a smaller cup is easier to control. (buy silicone flower mold)
Leave resin in the bottom of your pour cup. You can then check the resin in the cup to check to see if it cures your resin. This way you don’t have to disturb your project to see how it is curing.
