All the resins we stock are great resins in there own right, they just have different characteristics. They all dry to a high gloss finish and are all 1 to 1 mixing ratio.
Art Resin is an epoxy resin and is certified non toxic and has excellent UV resistants and is the thinnest of all the resins we stock. Therefore, it is great for artists that like the colours to move and blend more. On the other hand, the down side it is the most expensive and it is the softest when dry and isn’t heat resistant enough to have a hot cuppa on it if it is used for coasters. Working time is about 45 mins.
TOTAL CAST RESIN
Similarly, Total Cast resin is a polymer resin which has excellent UV stability and is certified non toxic but down side is it is a bit more expensive also. It also flows a bit more freely than Dalchem and Master cast resins but not quite as thin as Art Resin. Working time is about 35 mins.
MASTER CAST RESIN
Master cast is non toxic and UV resistant epoxy resin and a bit cheaper than Total Cast. It dries the hardest out of the non toxic resins from our tests. It is thicker than Total Cast which helps get better edges on your work and your design won’t move as much. Working time is about 30 mins.
