You can detect bubbles as you stir the resin mixture. Bubbles can be removed by heating the area. I like to put the heat gun to the cup before pouring after combining the resin, glitter, and colour. This aids in further liquifying the mixture, making it more simpler to pour.
AVOID BEING TEMPTED!
After the resin has been poured into the mould for a few hours, it will begin to firm and possibly feel ready to be removed. Stay away from it! You risk leaving fingerprints in the nearly-cured resin if you touch it.
Resin can emit fumes that are unhealthy to breathe in for a prolonged period of time. Make sure to finish your craft in a well-ventilated space, ideally outside, to lessen this worry. Additionally, when dealing with it, be sure to cover your face with a mask.
FIX IT UP!
It might get dirty while working with resin. Even the most meticulous maker could spill resin on your phone, skin, or other things. The undesired sticky resin residue can be removed with acetone nail polish or even lemon juice.
