      This question come through email by Denise:

      Hello…Im new to resin and have been watching a lot of tutorials. The one thing Im not sure of is: When you poor your first layer and then let it stand for an hour or so, should you then mix a new batch of resin or can you still use the first batch?? I so appreciate an answer…thank you much

      Hi Denise,

      As soon as you mix your resin and hardener, the chemical reaction starts.  Whether you pour it in the mold or leave it in the cup, it’s going to start curing after the specific pot time.  You either need to find another use for the resin left in the cup or plan on mixing less.  If you need ideas for leftover resin, here are some:  https://www.resinobsession.com/resin-resin-resin/leftover-resin-small-resin-projects-to-put-it-to-good-use/
