Liquid Art Ultra UV™ Epoxy Resin
Liquid Art Ultra UV™ is a two part epoxy resin system formulated for creating and coating works of art. Liquid Art Ultra UV is our most popular product amongst users coating stainless steel tumblers for the long working time, excellent UV resistance, and high-gloss finish.
Liquid Art Ultra UV contains our Ultra UV™ inhibitors to protect the epoxy resin from harmful UV rays that can damage and cause eventual yellowing to your project. Liquid Art Ultra UV™ has shown up to 10 times longer lasting clarity in comparison to Liquid Art™ and similar competitors products when tested in a simulated UV testing machine.
This product does not require a UV light to cure.

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.

I love KS resin. Easy to use for even a beginner like me. Amazing results
Love it the colors stay where you want them due to thicker viscosity and cure to a flawless clear finish!
I've used many, this brand is the best of them all! Rarely do I ever have an issue, if I do, it's my fault. I won't switch to another brand so hopefully they will keep making it.
I've used a couple of different resins. This is by far my fav.
Mixes well and leaves a glassy shine!
I love this resin. It has been the best I have tried since I live in a Oklahoma and the weather always changes. It leaves a glass like finish and my customers and I both love it.
Love this epoxy for my tumblers. It is easy to use, minimal bubbles and always has a glass finish.
I have been using Liquid Stone for all of my projects I love it too. I make Trivets and coasters from porcelain tile, and need the high heat resistant resin (all of KS is). The lighter viscosity of Art resin is wonderful !
I love working with it . It has bubble but if you let it sit for a minute after you finish mixing it then pour and touch they go away. Again I love this product ❤️❤️❤️
Worked well. Two pieces I coated twice as it seemed not to cover the edges and sides of the canvas. Probably sagged in the middle of the canvas. It was a small 11 x 14 canvas. All good now.
