Purpose: for painting using the resin art and geod technique, decorative and protective coating of artwork, pouring various fillers pigments, granite chips, quartz sand, etc. , making jewelry and decorative items, making countertops, casting various shapes and other creative products.The thicker resin is ideal for the geod technique - imitating the cut of a stone, the now ultra popular technique. It is convenient to coat the top with a thinner finishing resin. Attention: when pouring resin, be careful not to mix more than 100-150 g at a time and do not leave the mixture in a glass. After mixing, immediately distribute into small cups of colorants. The resin can boil (harden instantly) when mixed in large quantities, especially in hot stirring. Geod technique - paintings, glass coasters, decor, countertops. These techniques allow you to independently create a real work of art for your home (or for your professional activity) using natural marble chips, glass chips, quartz sand and crystals, resin dyes. Well suited for creating paintings, panels, art panels using the resin art and geode technique. Gives an even and glossy finish. Easier to control due to thicker consistency. Kit: component a (resin) and component b (hardener) in a 2: 1 ratio. Appearance: viscous, transparent without visible mechanical impurities and traces of water. Mix component a (resin) and component b (hardener) in a proportion by weight a: b 10 to 6. 100 g to 60 g - use electronic scales for accurate mixing. Attention the resin is highly reactive, it dries quickly enough in a thin layer, so the resin must be quickly and accurately mixed components a and b and poured into smaller containers with dyes or poured onto the surface, giving heat removal. Do not leave the mixture in a glass, especially in a hot room, as it can catch on very quickly. Mix preferably no more than 100-150 g at a time, preferably in portions of 50-70 g. Instructions for use: mix component a (resin) and component b (hardener) in a proportion by weight a: b 10 to 6. The mixing container must be clean. Mixing times vary from 2 to 3 minutes. Make sure to mix the resin from the bottom, sides and corners of the container. If the resin is not mixed well enough, a sticky film may remain on the surface after curing. After mixing, the resin can be painted in any color with the addition of liquid and solid polymer pigments of various colors. After mixing the components, the working time is about 30-40 minutes, depending on the mixing volume and room temperature. Make sure the resin art surface is level (or the pouring mold is sealed to prevent resin leaks) and you can start pouring out the resin. Remove bubbles carefully by hand or use a gas burner. Attention use a gas burner to expel individual bubbles. Walk quickly over the surface with a gas burner.
Hot air of a hair dryer is used to "disperse" waves on the surface and prevent pigments from migrating into each other. At elevated temperatures, the resin adheres more quickly. Protect the product from dust while curing. Leave the work on for 24 hours to harden the resin.
Drying time depends on the room temperature: at higher temperatures the resin hardens faster, at lower temperatures more slowly. If you are working with more complex items and need to grind and polish them decorations / countertops, etc. Resinart resin lends itself well to both grinding and polishing. Full polymerization can continue for 72 hours from the moment the components are mixed, until this moment the material should not be subjected to strong mechanical stress, for example, transportation.
For a higher gloss, overcoat with a thin layer of crystal art resin, more liquid, if necessary. Precautions: avoid contact of unprotected skin and mucous membranes with resin, hardeners and dust generated during sanding. Do not inhale sanding dust, use a respirator and goggles when machining the finished product. Do not use solvents to remove epoxy from skin. In case of skin contact with resin, hardeners, sanding dust, immediately remove the resin with dry wipes or a towel, then wash the contact area with warm water and soap.
Wash your hands thoroughly after work, especially before eating. If you swallow epoxy, drink plenty of water and call your doctor immediately.When using the product, do not smoke, drink or eat. Individual intolerance to the material and allergic reactions are possible, if they occur, immediately stop working with the material and consult a doctor. If a skin rash develops during work, stop working with the resin. If resin or hardener gets in your eyes, immediately flush your eyes with water for 15 minutes and consult a doctor. Storage conditions: epoxy is stored in a tightly closed container, in a dark place, at a temperature not exceeding 30 c, at a distance of at least 1 meter from heating devices. Avoid contact with moisture and volatile substances of other chemical components. In everyday life, store separately from food, in a place not accessible to children.
Disposal: do not allow liquid resins or their solutions to enter sewers, drains or any bodies of water, including rivers, streams or lakes. Transfer empty dry containers for recycling. If this is not possible, take it to a landfill.
Calculating the amount of resin. Example: a painting measuring 30 cm by 30 cm by 2 mm in height needs about 180 ml of resin, this is about 210 g of the mixture. This item is made of epoxy and resin.
