  • Which resin is best for the River Table?
    For best results, use the Small Cast and Medium Cast resin sets. We recommend sealing the wood with the Small Cast resin set first. For the main pour, use the Medium Cast resin (for pours up to 2" in one layer). For thicker pours, you can use Large Cast resin.
  • What is the best resin for coasters and trays?
    Small Cast is generally the best product for this application, depending on your project's thickness.
  • What is the best resin for canvas artwork?
    We recommend Small Cast resin.
  • Which resin is best for jewelry?
    Small Cast is the best resin for jewelry projects. It cures much faster than other resins, allowing you to work on your piece faster.
  • How long does the resin need to cure before I can start working on it (sanding, carving, etc.)?
    You can start working on the cured resin piece when it achieves the hardness of 62 Shore D. The time varies by the resin type and thickness of the pour. See the chart for the approximate time. As a general rule, the thicker the layer, the faster the resin will cure.
  • Does the ambient temperature affect the thickness of the layer you can pour?
    Yes, the maximum thickness of the layer can only be achieved when the ambient temperature is 68 F. The general rule is that the higher the ambient temperature, the smaller the thickness of the pour can be.
  • Can you measure resin by volume?
    Yes, measuring resin by volume is the most popular method since it doesn't require a scale. It's important to remember that it is not the most precise method. If possible, we recommend measuring resin by weight. For smaller projects, a kitchen scale does a great job. Please remember that the component ratio (resin to hardener) will not be the same as when measuring by volume. When measured by weight for products like TP 3D SC, MC, and LC, the correct ratio is 100:40 (not 2:1). For easier calculations, please use our resin calculator, available here.
  • Can you mix different types of resin?
    No, it is not recommended.
  • What are the best pigments to use with Techniplast 3D Resins?
    For opaque color, use the dedicated Techniplast Pigment Paste. It's a highly advanced product formulated to pair perfectly with our resins. Colors are highly saturated and have great color-fasting qualities. To achieve endless color combinations, you can mix our opaque pigments together. Please see the range of colors here. For transparent color, use our highly potent Transparent Pigments. You only need a small amount of pigment to achieve a strong color. They have excellent UV resistance. Start by adding a small amount of pigment and gradually increase as desired.
  • What is the maximum amount of Pigment Paste I can use in the resin mix?
    We recommend Pigment Paste should make up a maximum of 10% of your total resin mix. For example: If your total resin mix (resin+hardener) weighs 1 lb, you can use up to 0.1 lb of our Pigment Paste. Make sure that the pigment is stirred well before adding.
  • I've heard that epoxy resin cannot be dyed transparent green. Is that true?
    Most of the epoxy resins available on the market cannot be dyed transparent green, but Techniplast 3D resin can! Use our potent Transparent Dye to achieve beautiful and rich green color.
  • How can I achieve special effects with Techniplast resin?
    For metallic and pearlescent effects, use our dedicated FX metallic and FX pearl pigments. The FX pigments can be combined with our transparent dyes and opaque pigment pastes to achieve spectacular color effects. Remember that the pearlescent effect will be most visible when mixed with transparent pigments. FX pigments are very potent, and we recommend you start with a small amount and gradually adjust for the desired look.
