Resin Disclaimer

On this blog, when I say "resin" I am generally referring to the classic two part epoxy products that result in a solid molded object or a clear glass-like covered surface.  

Resin clays can also go by the name epoxy resin clays.  These are also a two part mixing product.

Resin is a chemical produced by many companies around the world.  Each have their own instructions and usage information.  Most of my projects feature resins and mold making materials from Environmental Technology Inc.

I will not be able to answer questions about the quality or results of your own resin mixing and pouring projects.  You should always contact the manufacturer.  Also, review their Material Safety Data sheets (MSDS). When in doubt always refer back to the manufacturer's provided materials.

About Envirotex Lite
Envirotex Lite is known as a resin that can be poured over table tops or canvas and with one application is equal to 50 coats of varnish.  That sure is a time saver!  Then crafty jewelers and artists came along and started pouring it into interesting bezels and other enclosed shapes.   
You need to remember that this resin was formulated for shallow pours.
Envirotex Lite – For Pours No Deeper than 1/8 of an inch.

 About EasyCast
EasyCast was designed to be used in a mold.  This is really important because if you are pouring resin into a one inch deep mold...and you want to accomplish that in one step...this is the resin for you.  The results are spectacular and I have several EasyCast posts on the blog already.
So when you think deep pour - think EasyCast.

 About Jewelry Resin
EnviroTex Jewelry Resin is a resin that enhances the surface on which it is applied, resulting in brighter, deeper and more intense colors.  EnviroTex® Jewelry Resin has amazing bubble release.  It is easy and fun to use and has a pleasing citrus scent!  Formulated for high resistance to light exposure and UV rays from the sun.  When cured, the resin coating is extremely durable, waterproof, heat & chemical resistant.
This resin was designed to pour into bezels!   
Again, working with the idea that most bezels are about 1/8 of an inch deep this resin works brilliantly for shallow pours.
