  • Easy Mixing: Mica colour pigments seamlessly blend with the resin to create breathtaking creations.

How To Use The Tabletop & Art Resin

Our signature Tabletop & Art Resin is the perfect formula for a majority of epoxy artists. From small jewels to larger art pieces, this is a versatile resin and a fantastic starting point for those exploring different ideas. Some of the most popular uses for this resin type include:

  • Jewellery
  • Board Games
  • Wall Art
  • Table Tops
  • Bar Tops
  • Lap Desks
  • Candle Holders
  • Chopping Boards
  • Trays
  • Lamps
  • Wall Clocks
  • Mugs

However, the possibilities are endless! In addition to the compatible materials listed above, this formula also works wonderfully with veneer and painted surfaces.


  • Working Time: 25-30 minutes
  • Pour Depth: Up to ¼” deep
  • Coverage: 12ft² per mixed 1 gallon at ⅛” thickness
  • Drying Time: 24 hours up to 7 days for maximum hardness


    How To Use Quick Cure Resin

    Artists searching for a faster drying alternative to standard epoxy resin will love our Quick Cure Resin. This product is designed to streamline your artistic process so you can create more in less time. Our quick cure formula is ideal for smaller projects, including:

    • Tumblers
    • Combs
    • Bookmarks
    • Keychains
    • Top Coats
    • Jewellery
    • Coasters
    • Soap Dishes

    Once again, your imagination is the only limit. As long as your project is on the smaller side – this resin is a brilliant choice.

    Please Note: The quick-curing process may be slowed down if any pigments or other additives are mixed with the resin. So while it still won’t take as long as standard epoxy resin to dry, you should anticipate a couple of extra hours to set fully.


  • Working Time: 20 minutes maximum
  • Pour Depth: Up to ¼” deep
  • Coverage: 24 ft² per mixed 2 gallons at ⅛” thickness
  • Drying Time: 4 hours

    • Coffee Tables
    • Flower preservation
    • Pyramids

    To put it simply, if your design requires a deeper pour – then this is the resin option for you. Feel confident with your purchase, knowing that this epoxy formula works well for virtually all casting projects.


    • Working Time:
    • Pour Depth: Up to 2” deep
    • Coverage: 12ft² (roughly 1.1 square meters) per mixed gallon at a thickness of ⅛”
