Let’s talk first about the elephant in the room when it comes to resin and that is safety. Today’s resin products are so much better than they ever were before. They’re safer and easier to use. However, they are still something you want to use with care. Read the instructions on the package carefully and follow them perfectly.
You want to work in a well-ventilated area and wear a respirator-style mask. We strongly suggest that you take precautions like wearing eye protection and gloves too. Take care not to get it on your clothing or skin and clean up any spills immediately. Resin is fun and it’s not hard to work with and by following the instructions you can work with it safely too!
