So I was recommended an epoxy resin to use, and to be honest, two pots of Kleer Kast Polyester Resin and I’m over it. It smells soooo bad, takes ages to fully cure, and often leaves a tacky surface which needs doming or sanding to eliminate.
So I purchased 1.5L of Entropy Super Sap CCR (Clear Cast Resin) from the Fibreglass Shop in Hamilton.
It was so easy to mix, a 1:2 ratio to a hardener, and didn’t smell!!!!
I wiped down the mould with spray cooking oil, then half filled each space with resin. After curing for 30min I placed the pieces and left over night.
It was a hot day and by the afternoon they were fully cured, with no tacky surface!!!!
I messed up tho and had quite a few boo boos.
The insects had continued to bubble. I should have stayed and watched it cured for a while ensuring all bubbles were expelled.
Even the fern was crappy. I should have pressed it firmly into place to push the bubbles out.
Oppsie. Oh well, heaps of fun playing in my shed ; ) will try again tomorrow.
Loving Fibreglass Shop’s Entropy Super Sap CCR (Clear Cast Resin). Purchased online via their website and couriered to my doorstep the very next day.
