Wilsor crystal clear polyester casting resin is ideal for smaller projects where shrinkage is not a problem. For example for casting insects, flowers or other small objects. The crystal clear polyester resin consists of two components (ratio 3:1) and the b component is a MEK hardener.
Provide a mold where the resin can be poured. Mold should be smooth, self-releasing in shape and made of plastic to prevent sticking. Crystal clear casting resin does not adhere to Teflon, polyethylene and polypropylene (disposable cups). Mix 1% of the MEK hardener with the resin and stir well.
If the resin is still liquid, you can place insects, leaves or other small objects in it. Make sure that no air bubbles are trapped.
Remove object from mold after curing. The side where resin hardens in contact with air, the resin remains slightly dull and sticky. By sanding and then working with Colad One step Ready until a clear smooth layer is created.
