Would he wear like a surfer style braided hemp necklace in those colors?

I also just tried the Envirotex Lite Pour on Epoxy last night, and I left it on the fireplace mantle to cure, and after 12 hours it's soft cured (meaning you can't totally bend it but you can make a fingernail mark in it)  By chance did you try to add a dye to it?  That might have changed it's curing time.

Thanks! It's reached soft cure now, but I'm skeptical on whether or not it will fully cure. I can leave fingernail/toothpick impressions in it.

Could a humidity of 65% keep it from curing? Sad

Also, one more question, is it true with Castin' Craft that it takes longer for thinner casts to dry than thicker casts? I always use a plastic cup to mix it in and then I keep the cup to see if the leftover in the bottom has dried before I mess with my pieces. Lately I've been coating instead of casting. The resin in the cup is, uh, rock hard, while the thin layer on my pieces is only soft cured. It's been about 60 hours.

Have you ever had a resin take a full 72 hours or longer to set?

Mine are almost always fulled cured within 36, even though it says it may take 72.

If it hasn't cured fulled in 72, does that mean it won't set at all?

It doesn't leave impressions to handle it, but you can poke it with a toothpick and it leaves impressions. It's been 48 hours.

Maybe you could cast the shrinky dinks in resin. Smiley

I justed used Envirotex Lite Pour On epoxy resin for the first time.

Is it... normal... for it to be tacky after 24 hours? I thought it should be soft cured by then.

Also, what does soft cured really mean?

I was originally making this plush toy for my boyfriend. Oy, but I made his arms all wonky. So, pillow for puppeh! It is made from fleece and felt and lotsa stuffing.

Dracubot sneaking up on unsuspecting PUPPEH:



Fight evil with cuteness! Puppeh wins!:



Fighting makes us sleepy:



It's my first ever stuffed toy. And it's covered with dog hair, I know, but it's cute yeah?  Smiley

Thanks! The scalloped hearts are ones that I do not cut myself. I attempted it... less than satisfactory results!  Cheesy
