Hi all!

I don't know if I've put this in the right part of the forum, but I just had a quick question about how my resin would cure.

I'm looking at doing a rather large piece (a large ball about 3" and about 8floz.)  I was planning on casting it in layers, but my concern is that by casting it in layers, I'll be able to see the seams of each layer?  I don't want to waste any resin, because it's quite expensive for me, so I just thought I'd ask you guys who definitely have more experience!

TL;DR:

Can I cast my project in layers, or will there be visible seams?

Thank you!!

Anytime I have layered resin, they have been seamless, and it amazes me every time.  Wink

I have only ever used EnviroTex resin, although it shouldn't be different with other kinds of resin. 

You could always do a small test piece, just do a couple layers.... i really don't think there will be any seams though. Smiley
