1. Preparations before working with resin
Resin is sticky, always remember to wear gloves and an apron to keep your hands and clothes clean. Protect your work surface with a vinyl/ plastic sheet to prevent unwanted resin drips.
2. Clean up your tools
We recommend silicone tools to work with resin, disposable plastic tools would also be fine.
- Use a paper towel to wipe the tools before the resin cures.
- Then spray alcohol on the tools and wipe with a dry paper towel, repeat this step until your tools are clean.
- Wash the tools with soapy water and let them dry before using them again.(4) For silicone tools, you may leave them on the vinyl sheet or silicone mat to cure. Then peel off the resin the next day.
3. Clean up your hands
Always wear gloves while working with resin. If you get resin on your hand, wash it immediately to prevent any skin iritations. Use hand cleaner or hand sanitizer to wash and rinse under water.
