✔️ Dry in 12-18 Hours
✔️ 1:1 Mixing Ratio by Volume
✔️ High Gloss Finish
🔥 High Temperature Resistance
☀️ Industry Leading UV Resistance
✔️ Made in the US
✔️ No VOC
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.

Amazing ! Works so wonderful on my tumblers all I can say is amazing…
Love this resin
I used this on 4x4 ceramic tiles for coasters and the finish was perfect. They were huge sellers at the last show I’ve already ordered more.
Liquid Art Elite™ Epoxy Resin
I’ve tried several different brands of resin over the last year and always had problems with resin to the point that I almost gave up on it. I used to have to coat my coasters multiple times to get rid of the “dimples” etc. Actually thought I
would like Krystal Resin but the working time is too short. I love KS Liquid Art Elite. I’ve never had one problem!!! I’m about or open my second order!
Only epoxy I will use going forward
Loving my KSResin, being a beginner I find it’s easy to work with and I’m loving the finished product..
I was looking for a thinner resin to work and I found it! Here’s the catch, you are going to love it so much you’re going to want to buy it all!
Well my tumbler game has definitely stepped up a notch
OK a few notches. This stuff goes on so nice a little thin takes a while to set up but does a great job
Literally the best resin I’ve ever bought!
