Step 1. Prepare for Mixing
Gather your epoxy resin, mixing supplies, and personal protective equipment. We recommend at the very least using nitrile gloves, safety glasses, clothing to protect from spills. Be sure to use epoxy resin in a well-ventilated room or use an air-purifying respirator.
Step 2. Pour Epoxy Resin into a Mixing Container
After determining the amount of epoxy resin you will need, measure your desired amount of epoxy resin at a 1:1 ratio by volume into a graduated mixing cup. Pour the resin first, allow it a moment to settle, and then follow up with an equal amount of hardener.
For best results mix a minimum of 2 fluid ounces (60ml) of epoxy resin and hardener.

Step 3. Mix Thoroughly for Four Minutes
Mix the two parts together for a total of four minutes. Be sure to scrape the bottom and sides of the container while mixing so that there is no un-mixed epoxy resin. Aggressive mixing can introduce excessive air, stir slowly but thoroughly. Continue to stir until the epoxy resin no longer has ribbons and returns to clear.
Step 4. Apply to Surface
Apply the epoxy resin to your surface immediately after mixing. You can do this by using your gloved hand, a foam roller, a brush, a trowel, and so many other tools! Make sure that epoxy resin completely covers the surface before moving to the next step. If you do not apply enough epoxy resin it may pull away from the edge. If you apply too much epoxy resin it can drip off or run to one end depending on the surface.
Step 5. Use a Torch or Heat Gun to Remove Trapped Air
Quickly sweep a propane torch or heat gun across the surface being sure to keep the flame 6-8 inches away from the surface. Do not overheat the epoxy resin or hold the heat in one spot for too long. We recommend heating the epoxy resin only during the working time, do not apply heat once the working time has passed. After eliminating bubbles allow the epoxy resin time to cure in the appropriate environment (listed in Technical Data below).
Ensure that you are working in a well-ventilated room or using an air-purifying respirator.

Tried another brand -big mistake! KSResin is an amazing product! Will never use anything else again!!
l am glad I ordered epoxy from you. It is amazing. It is dries so smooth and so easy to work with. I will be ordering more epoxy in the future
I love this resin. Easy to work with and crystal clear. I won’t use a different brand after trying this.
This is the only resin I have found that doesn't give me that ugly ripple affect when I spread it on the tumbler. Maybe it is more forgiving, but now it is the only one I am purchasing :) Thanks!
This is my favorite epoxy to use low odor , excellent shine and finish ! Easy to work with .
I make quite a few coasters. I’ve never had a problem with the coaster and heat placed on it. If your careful it is pretty bubble free.
Will definitely purchase this again
Liquid Art™ Epoxy Resin
I’ve started using this brand and stuck with it!! It’s amazing. No odor not a lot of bubbles if any just take your heat gun to the cup and they pop…and the shine man these babies are so shiny and beautiful.
With some resins I have to do two coats on my art pieces because of bare spots. With KS resin I get it right the first time with smooth glass like coverage that really make my paintings pop! I’m done trying out other options and sticking with KS for consistently great results.
