OK, so I know someone has already posted this question earlier in the year, but I am hoping to catch some new fish...
Has anyone had any experience, or know anyone with the experience of casting large projects? I have done a ton of research... and there's not a lot of people out there with "tip's"... the websites that sell the resin are very technical in using the product safely but not much else in technique. I know that casting resin gets really cloudy if you are not experienced, and I sure would hate to waste all my cool beach glass (making a beach glass counter top for bathroom vanity) "practicing"... anyone with info would be a God send!!!
Happy crafting!!!

Hey thanks, that is a very informative site! I think I'm just going to dive into a couple of small projects and toy around with the stuff, the temperature here in Washington has been no more than 50 in the afternoons (26 this morning) so I think I'm going to wait on doing a large project until we can do it outside... I guess my husband can keep shaving in the kitchen sink until summer!!!! hahaha, anyway thanks again, and I will still take tips from anyone/anywhere else!
