1) my piece is about 24" x 20" I havent a clue how much resin to use, any suggestions?

It sounds like your piece is a little bigger than mine, and I used a whole box of the two part Easy Cast brand which says is 8 ounces. So I'd say a bit more than that, 10 or 12 ounces?

2) Did you worry about airbubbles when pouring, or did you pop them as it was curing?

Not really. There didn't seem to be a lot after it cured naturally (stroke of luck more like), but I know if you take a heating tool it helps to bring the bubbles to the surface and clears up the resin.

3)How long did it take to completely go off

I think I left it sitting for 2 days? The instructions on the bottle says it sets after one, but I didn't want to risk it.

Anything I haven't thought of??

Not that I can think of.  Smiley Hope this helps. And post your mosaic project! I want to see  Cheesy

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.
