We all know it’s difficult to add much color, especially dark colors to UV Resin. The color blocks the UV light and can compromise the resin’s curing. For this reason we formulated a Black UV Resin! The Black UV Resin has a bit of transparency but not much, and the thicker it is the more opaque it is. Take a look at the black and white earrings to see how opaque it looks at about 1/6″ thick.
UV Resin. Great for your small projects. Make keychains, earrings etc. in minutes. UV Resin is also great to use as an adhesive for attaching earring backs, securing your art to a phone grip base or a keychain eyescrew. It’s much better than glue alone. Your piece didn’t come out with a perfect finish? Doming it with UV Resin is a great, quick fix!
Pouring in thin layers (1/8″ or so) and curing each layer is the most efficient way to use UV Resin. The thicker you pour, the more time you’ll need under the lamp.
UV Resin is very tacky while curing. Don’t test it by touching the surface, you’ll leave fingerprints.
Adding color to UV Resin will require a longer cure time. Colorants block the light so the more opaque the color, the longer it will have to cure.
For very small items start with 2 minutes curing time. Cure longer if needed.
UV Resin requires a UV Lamp 24W
