I'm a new crafter from Bangladesh. I wanted to make some pendents from resin, but clear resin isn't readily available here.
But I found some industrial grade resin adhesive i.e. Araldite. I mixed the resin and hardener 1:1 ratio and it became sort of yellow color mixture. After 6 hours in mold it turned into an yellow pendent and that's not transparent.

Is there anyway to make it clear / transparent ?
Any alternative to Resin / Hardener ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi eusufzai.  Welcome to Craftster.  You can try checking the Random Resin Question Thread for tips and tricks on using resin.  I hope this helps.

Nope - it will stay yellow and likely yellow more as it ages.  If you use some other resin that is meant as an adhesive, and it dries clear, that also does not mean it won't yellow as it ages.  You will need to find a jewelry grade resin.  Can you get it shipped in - the major names/makers should ship, and Amazon has several options.
