I have cast a couple of things in the kind of resin that is mixed in equal parts...anyhow
it seems that my pieces are yellowing. Does anyone else have this problem? Is it bad resin? This particular type
of resin? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I read somewhere that if you pour more than 1/8 inch at a time before letting the layer cure, it will turn yellow.

I've been doing research on resin. I do that before I mess with it. Smiley But I am not entirely sure that is the case.

May be a thought though.

Simply Fabulous.

I'm from the uk and my resin doesnt yellow at all
Its called crystal resin however i just tried to take it out of the moulds and its very tacky like stucky, so then i got in a pickle and all this sticky strings of resin was going everywhere i probably should have left it for longer

My resin used to yellow until I started to heat it slightly before mixing. Just run hot water over the closed bottles before pouring. Not sure if that was the problem, but I haven't had a hint of yellow since!

yeah my instructions said to make sure the two liquids were warm to the touch otherwise the resin would cloud.

there's a party in my tummy, so yummy, so yummy!

also, there is crafting resin vs industrial resin from the hardware store. The hardware store stuff which isn't made for casting (although it works) is more likely to yellow on you.
