Liquid Art™ Epoxy Resin should be used in a room where the humidity is under
50%, and the temperature is 65-80° when pouring. When the humidity is over 50%
a dehumidifier should be used in the room where the pouring and curing is taking
place. You can set the Resin in hot water for 10 minutes to have a thinner mixture;
this will also help cause less trapped air in the mixture. Be careful to not get any
water into the epoxy. Temperatures below 65°F will cause the curing process to be
CALCULATE REQUIRED EPOXY
Measure the surface area (length x width) of what you will be coating. Times the
number of your surface area by 3 to get the total ounces you will need per coat of
epoxy resin. You may want to add extra if you plan to use multiple color additives.
Example: 2’ long x 4’ width = 8 x 3oz = 24 ounces of epoxy resin required (12 ounces
of Hardener, 12 ounces of Resin)
MEASURING (By Volume)
Starting with the hardener, pour 1 part of hardener to 1 part of resin into a
graduated cup/bucket. Be sure to measure the EXACT amount of each part or you
could have issues with your mixture. Do NOT add more hardener than resin, this
doesn’t make the final product harder and will create issues. Do NOT guess or try to
estimate your measurements. Inaccurate measurements will result in soft or sticky
spots on surfaces.
In a clean container, mix the measured resin and hardener with a paint mixing stick.
Mix slowly for 2 minutes (use a timer), scrape the sides and bottoms with a
paint stick, and continue to mix for an additional 2 minutes using a timer. Mixing slowly
will help ensure that you are not introducing too much air into the mixture. Large
amounts of mixture may require additional mixing time.
After the epoxy resin has been mixed thoroughly, immediately pour the mixture
onto your desired surface. Do NOT leave the mixture in your container, as it will -
begin to get very hot and decrease your working time.
The epoxy resin can be spread with a 1/8” trowel, paint brash, foam brush, or foam
roller. Be sure to sufficiently cover all areas of your surface. Use your gloved hand or
a paint brush to brush the epoxy resin on to the sides of your project. The epoxy
resin will self-level and drip down the sides.
There are many different pigments that can be used to tint the epoxy resin such as
latex spray paints, mica powders, oil-based paints, etc. Colors can be mixed into the
epoxy resin (after being fully mixed), or sprayed on to the surface of the epoxy resin
while still in liquid form. There are many techniques available online.
Once you are satisfied with the design of your epoxy resin, you can use a propane
torch to remove the trapped air from the epoxy. Hold the torch 6 inches away from
the surface and sweep quickly across the surface until the bubbles disappear. Wait
approximately 5 minutes and repeat that process. Be sure to not torch during the
curing process or you may cause waves in the surface.
For best results, the room temperature should be between 65-80°F (Liquid Art™)
with the humidity levels under 50%. The coated item will need to cure for several
days in a dust free room. 12-24 Hours after initial pour your epoxy will be dry to
touch. After 3 days in the recommended environment, your epoxy will be fully cured
and ready to use.
Always have a plastic sheet over the work area you are using. Once the epoxy has
cured, you will be able to pull the cured epoxy off the plastic sheet and dispose of it.
If you need to clean up spilled epoxy while it is still in a liquid state, you can use
acetone. Once the epoxy has cured you will need to remove it by sanding or using a
