1.Be careful the mix ratio of the Part A and Part B as mixing them together. If there is too much Part A or too much Part B, it will make a difference to the Epoxy crystallization.
2.As stirring the two parts together thoroughly and evenly, try to stir for at least 60 seconds by using a clean stick, like wooden Popsicle stick, and pay attention to the bottom and the inner side of the container where you mix the epoxy. To make sure you have mix the two parts thoroughly, you could use 2 mixing cups. After pouring and stirring the Part A and Part B together in the first mixing cup, you could pour the mixture into the second mixing cup and stir again. If you haven’t mixed them perfectly, it might lead to the imperfection to your handicraft. (Please stir in the same direction)
3.After mixing, there will be air bubbles in the mixture. It would be better to pour the mixture into the mold as soon as possible. In general, the air bubbles will disappear if you leave the product standing for about 5 minutes. After pouring, if there are still air bubbles in the product you make, you could use a needle or a toothpick to get rid of the air bubbles carefully.
4.As using the epoxy resin, try not to let the epoxy adhesives and coating contact your skin. If you do get the epoxy on your skin, you should wipe it by using cloth or tissue, and then wash it by using the combination of warm water and detergent powder, hand sanitizer or alcohol-based handrub.
5.This is Epoxy AB glue, which look like clear glass after crystallization. And the thicker one will not be as clear as the thinner one. If you are going to make products with curved surface, you would need a base with rim that could hold the transparent covering. And to make the curved surface, you have to wait until the mixture become thicker.
6.This could be used to make pendants with your own photo. Before covering the photo with epoxy, you could print and cut out the photo that fit the pendant perfectly, and stick to pendant firmly.
7.Make sure the desk is horizontal and smooth out a piece of paper under the product that you are going to make, in case the mixture will flow out.
8.In general, you should use the mixture before it become too thick to pour out.
9.Keep the product far away from dust before it has completely crystallized.
1.If I don’t have the vacuum equipment, how could I get rid of those air bubbles in the epoxy
Answer: The air bubbles would disappear after standing for 5-20 minutes.
2.Which one should be poured first
Answer: You should pour the Part B into the container first.
