“I often get asked “How do you do that?” and told “I’m not at your level, and won’t ever be.” Ah, my friends…that is not correct. I am learning every single day. I draw. I chip away at wood with crazy ideas. I save every single scrap and utilize it – feel it, cut it up, burn it, and mostly ‘waste it’. Yes, WASTE. I am not afraid to have a project not work out, because honestly it never doesn’t work out: I learn from every single one and therefore nothing is wasted.”

As a maker extraordinaire, Jess excels at thinking outside the box (what box?) and enjoys bringing her ideas to the forefront of the woodworking and art communities, with a strong emphasis on sharing and teaching. Jess’s work is a testament to the performance and ease of use of our TotalBoat epoxy line. Her work makes our epoxy even better and we are so excited to partner with her to create MakerPoxy Crystal Clear Artist’s Resin by Jess Crow.

How to Use MakerPoxy Crystal Clear Artist’s Resin by Jess Crow

What You’ll Need:

  • TotalBoat MakerPoxy Artist Epoxy Resin and MakerPoxy Hardener by Jess Crow
  • Protective gloves
  • Eye protection
  • Clothing protection
  • Clean, dry, plastic mixing pots
  • Wooden mixing sticks
  • Poly sheeting to protect floor and collect any spillage
  • Plastic resin spreader and/or brush to spread liquid epoxy
  • Hair dryer or heat gun for removing air bubbles

STEP 1 – PREP

  • Start with a dry, clean surface.
  • Be sure the surface is level before you begin.
  • Place a layer of plastic sheeting under your work area.
  • Put on your disposable gloves and other personal protection, including safety glasses, and make sure your work area is well ventilated.

STEP 2 – MEASURE (BY VOLUME OR BY WEIGHT)

  • Measure MakerPoxy by Volume: Pour 1 part resin (Part A) and 1 part hardener (Part B) into a clean, dry plastic mixing cup.
  • Measure MakerPoxy by Weight:
    1. MakerPoxy has a mix ratio by weight of 100A:84B.
    2. Select grams on your scale.
    3. Place your mixing cup on the scale and zero out the weight.
    4. Add the desired amount of resin (Part A).
    5. Determine the amount of hardener (Part B) by multiplying the gram weight of the resin x .84. For example, if you pour 45g of resin, you would multiply 45g x .84 to get the amount of hardener to add, which is 37.8g
  • To get ready for the next step, have a second clean mixing cup nearby.

STEP 3 – MIX

  • Stir slowly so you don’t get air bubbles.
  • After 3-5 minutes, pour into a second cup and stir for another 2-3 minutes.

STEP 4 – ADD PIGMENTS

  • Pour mixed epoxy into separate smaller mixing cups.
  • Add pigments, as desired, and stir thoroughly to combine.

STEP 5 – POUR

  • (Optional) Use a brush to apply a thin seal coat of clear, mixed epoxy.
  • Delicate objects that may be damaged by epoxy (e.g., photographs) may need to be sealed in a clear coat before embedding.
  • Pour the mixed MakerPoxy onto the surface.

STEP 6 – POP BUBBLES

  • Bubbles will rise to the surface.
  • Wave a heat gun quickly back and forth across the epoxy for a few seconds to pop air bubbles.
  • Keep pouring and overcoating, as desired.
  • Allow to cure. Full cure is 5-7 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is MakerPoxy Art Resin UV resistant?

Yes. The UV-resistant formula protects against yellowing and fading! For even better UV protection, durability, and clarity, overcoat cured MakerPoxy with TotalBoat Halcyon Clear Rugged Gloss Varnish.

Can I place hot items on the cured surface?

Yes, but do not place items hotter than 110°F on the cured surface, or it will become distorted and discolored. This is standard practice for nearly all epoxies cured at room temperature.

Can I thin MakerPoxy?

No, thinning epoxy changes the mix ratio and will result in improper cure.

Is this epoxy safe for food contact?

Yes, MakerPoxy Art Resin BPA-free formula is a safer alternative for finished projects that may come into contact with food.

What is the coverage of MakerPoxy?

The coverage for a one-gallon kit of MakerPoxy is roughly 12 sq. ft. at ⅛”, and 6 sq. ft. at ¼.″

How long will it take to cure?

Can I use dyes or pigments with MakerPoxy?

Yes. MakerPoxy Artist Resin can be tinted with epoxy-safe dyes, colorants, alcohol inks, mica powder pigments, or special effects additives.

How long is the working time?

MakerPoxy has a long working time of up to approximately 60 minutes, which is perfect for first-time resin users. However, it’s strongly recommended to mix only as much as you can apply in 20 minutes.

Can I mix MakerPoxy by weight or volume?

Yes. The mix ratio by volume is 1:1 (1 part A resin to 1 part B hardener) if you mix in a mixing cup by the graduations. The mix ratio by weight is 100A:84B, or 100 units of Part A resin for every 84 units of part B hardener.

What is the ideal temperature range when working with this resin?

The ideal temperature is around 70°F – 80°F. Warm conditions are critical for a successful cure, and to achieve the best clarity and surface finish.
