Resin Tip - Protect your resin projects from dust! #artresin #epoxyresin #resintip
Your artwork may require a thicker layer of resin if, for example, you're pouring into a mold, pouring over areas of high relief or embedding objects into resin. ArtResin epoxy resin was designed to be poured in thin layers as a surface coating. If you pour thicker than the recommended 1/8", bubbles may not be able to escape and you could end up with bubbles in your cured resin. 

We will walk you through each different approach! Resin Uses, Liquid Resin, How To Get Thick, Vinyl Cut, Make It Yourself, Projects

ArtResin produces no fumes or VOCs, is non-hazardous, and non-flammable!! It's true!!
two laptops with the words, why artists need to look into artoresin
Why Artists Need to Look into ArtResin!
A coat of ArtResin instantly increases the value of your artwork because it looks more expensive. It also keeps the colors underneath vibrant, acting very much like expensive UV glass that framers use. It also makes the art #waterproof and #protected! Other epoxy resins yellow over time, can get cloudy and even crack. Plus most require use of a respirator and release noxious VOCs. #ArtResin is the #best epoxy resin, hands down!! Just ask our 1000s of satisfied customers :)
