How To Pour and Cure Resin

Hope you find this informative...the irony of making this, I had just enough juice in my laptop to make and edit the video. Right after our power went out for several hours. The house felt cold fast...now we're all back to normal

Great video, Care. I have never used that brand of resin. Where did you order it from? I've used the Ice Resin and been happy with it but it is expensive. Can't wait to see the next step. Hugs, Sal

Hey Sal! I got it from Michaels. I know you can order all kinds, even from some of our precious metal suppliers. I just checked youtube and am amazed at how different the approaches are. I haven't seen anyone else use a small torch to remove bubbles yet (I know I'm not alone!). I've seen one person blow thru a straw and another claim to just go in with a toothpick and gently remove them...I like the final step of center doming the portrait. I guess people heavily into resin made products will make a lot at once

I thought I had commented on this, but I guess I didn't. There is an artist that I love who seals most of her work in resin. She uses a different type of resin that she buys from Lowes or Home Depot, but she runs a torch over the top to get rid of the bubbles. Thanks so much. Heading to watch the last part.
