      I was adding my 2nd coat of Resin Obsession Crystal Doming Resin. Unfortunately, it had already started hardening and now the painting looks terrible. I tried taking the resin off with acetone and 91% alcohol and after those were dry a torch. Now the resin has bubbled and formed streaks on the canvas. It is a mess. How can I fix it? Should I use a Dremel? I hate to think that it is a lost cause. Please help!
      Many thanks,

      Hi Cheri,

      I’m sorry this is happening. How frustrating!

      Since you’ve got bubbles in the cured resin, you will need to sand the resin to remove the bubbles. You can use a dremel, but it can take off resin quickly.

      Hi. My first resin project. First i am using resin that was bought a long time ago. I was using a new plastic oil pan for a mold. I placed my prepared pinecones in pan and secured them with tape across top. Mixed resin and poured in. 1 1/2″ deep. I mixed 3 different colors. Everything looked good. Every few minutes i used my heat gun to pop bubbles. About 30 minutes in this thing started literally boiling and smoking. I moved it outside for safety. What or how many things were wrong.
