THE BEST WAY TO GET BUBBLES OUT OF EPOXY RESIN IS WITH AN TORCH
The flame from a handheld butane torch, barbecue lighter or a bigger propane torch is hot enough to thin out the resin and destroy all the bubbles. Please use caution when using a flame!
TIP: This process should be done as soon as possible after pouring. Do not overheat or blow dust onto the surface.
CAST RESIN IN A WARM ROOM / WARM YOUR RESIN BEFORE CASTING
Resin likes a room temperature of 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit for curing. TIP: try heating a smaller space such as a bathroom or other room.
Place BALTIC DAY unopened resin and hardener bottles in a plastic bag, then keep the bag sit inside the hot water for atleast 5-10 minutes, drying them off thoroughly before you measure and mix. Be careful, you don't want to get water in your epoxy resin. Make sure the resin is warm ( 70-85 F or 23-30C ).
BE SURE THAT THE SURFACE YOU ARE POURING YOUR BALTIC DAY RESIN IS WARM
Gently warm your casting top with a heat gun is an easiest way to warm up the surface.
TIP: if you are working with molds, you can also gently warm them to 130-150F before the projects. Pour your resin out slowly and close to the surface. Pour in thin layers: bubbles won't have a change to escape to the top if you poor too thick.
BE CAREFUL WHEN MIXING EPOXY RESIN
Mix carefully and slowly atleast 5-7 minutes, while going along the sides and bottom of the cup ( whipping it will induce more bubbles ). When mixing large volumes of resin, it's not easy to not to introduce bubbles which may not rise to the resin surface before pouring or casting resin.
