Great tip on the warming individual parts before mixing...

resin is very sensitive, so remember warming it is also a delicate thing, you will notice it a bit more liquidy. warm water is your best bet.

Just an FYI...

I warmed my resin by sitting it beside the fireplace, and it worked perfect!  The resin and hardner got very liquidy and mixed together better then ever!  My molds got very little bubbles in them as I poured, and it took much longer for the resin to start to get thick, making it easier to work with.
