Pouring Resin is an acrylic pouring medium for creating beautiful art on canvas or wood, and dries with a glossy finish.
This Pouring Resin mixes seamlessly with Fusion to create beautiful and unique acrylic pour artwork. It can be used on canvas, furniture, or any surface that Fusion sticks to. It finishes to a very durable, glossy finish, and can even be used on its own as a finish or top coat over Fusion Mineral Paint. It can even be painted on top of for a multi-dimensional look.
HOW TO USE
Stir Pouring Resin before using. Best used on a horizontal surface for best application, as Pouring Resin is self-levelling.
To add colour, add a couple of drops of any Fusion Mineral Paint to tint the Resin (no more than 10% paint ratio). You want to use very little paint so that the flow stays very liquid.
Tap your surface to settle air any bubbles.
If using Cell Enhancer, afterwards be sure to wipe those areas clean with a bit of rubbing alcohol to remove the shiny wet look.
Dry time: 8-12hours | Re-coat time: 12-24 hours | Cure time: 21 days
Using in a mold: Pouring resin can be used in a shallow mold. However, it is possible to add layers of resin in deeper molds. Only do this once the first layer has had time to dry. You must allow time for the water to evaporate, which may causing shrinking.
Minimizing bubbles: You can use heat to help reduce bubbles, although it is imperative to do this with care. You do not want to burn the resin. To prevent unwanted bubbles in the first place, don’t pour from too far above (which can cause bubbles to form as the resin hits the substrate), gentle mixing of colours into the Pouring Resin and then waiting for a couple hours before pouring to allow for bubbles to dissipate.
Spreading the the Pouring Resin: Is intended to be poured, brushing it on can create brush strokes and is not recommended. If you want to move the resin around, it is best to tilt the piece, but you can also use tools like a palette knife.
