Yeah resin is cool but so expensive, I have been wanting to do some but being off work I just can’t find any resin cheep enough , I have done a very cool glow in the dark coffee table for John (nepia)on hear combining resin with Litchenburg fractles is also cool , if anyone wants one please do give me a shout as I am now back working part time , and to be honest could do with some work

Cheers Mark

Very nice.

 

What do you call expensive Mark? I'm in the process of sorting some shelving for my office and (now) I'd love something like that.

Anybody got a good recommendation of a resin brand to use. Always struggled with air bubbles when I have dabbled with small bits in the past.

 I can’t recommend casting resins but I can recommend you look at the various threads by Chad Dixon of Longrifles Inc in Sturgis, South Dakota, USA. They’ll be on the snipers hide forum, Facebook and possibly on his main website if you can do the google time machine thing. He’s done a lot of composite stock work that looks excellent and has given plenty of tips for working with resins, including mixing on a piece of big, flat, cold glass rather than whipping air into it in a pot.

Hi a company called Elichem are good but expensive, try a hot air gun that’s what they recommend me to use you have to go gently but it does work

West Systems 105/205 resin is very very good.

The most effective way of getting rid of bubbles is a quick pass over the surface with a blowtorch. 

Some woodworkers go the whole hog and use a vacuum bag to remove all the bubbles from within the resin.
