The resin won't harden without the catalyst.  Definitely don't use in apartment, Imo. Used it in dorm room, had both windows open and fan blowing/sucking the fumes out and still really noxious.  That's why I am waiting until summer and can do it at the grandparents' place.  They have lots of room and much better ventilation, aka a back porch I can use.

It's going to be really warm here in MN this weekend, so I may finally get my resin projects started - on the back porch. WOOOOOT!

okay so, I just popped my first resiny things out of the mold  but here's my question, they are so sticky! I don't know if I have to clear coat it or what. actually I would rather not (clear coat). does the stickyness go away? anyone know?  and I like your resin stuff! are they going to be pendants?

Hi,
I don't know what kind of resin you are using, but with mine, and what I have read about others, if it is sticky then it didn't mix right. You can wait awhile and see if it gets any harder, but it probably wont get rock hard ever. I just did one like that, I tried the clear coat and it felt like it was dry, but a few days later when she got it, it was all sticky. I have read about things that are supposed to make it hard, but it seems everyone agrees it is easier to just start over. Sorry about that.

I haven't worked with resin yet, been kind of scared to.  But this thread makes it sound fun, so I want to try it now Smiley  Thanks for the links too for where to get the resin and catalyst.
