I’ve been working with resin to create small pendants for jewellery. Some of them have set perfectly, but others have remained tacky and get covered in fingerprints. I looked through your site and found the suggestion for using a resin sealer spray, which sounds like it might solve the problem- I’ve also been looking at how to set fresh flowers in resin and this also requires the spray. But so far I can’t find any resin spray available online in the UK. There are restrictions on posting stuff like this overseas from America so the sites that do offer UK shipping are really expensive. I was wondering if you knew of any alternatives I might be able to find in Britain?

Hi Hatty, as an alternative, you can try an clear, acrylic based aerosol spray.

Oh my god, thank you. I’ve spent hours searching for what to use…all the post I saw was use a sealant…it wasn’t helpful. This is. Thanks.

Look on Amazon. They have a bunch of different ones.

Any updates as to which sprays you tried? Which were best? Etc.
I’m from the UK and my Poly Resin still remains slightly tacky even when cured. I end up putting fingers prints in my pieces whilst putting the eye pins in.
I mix it properly, but I know that weather can also be a factor! Just looking for a suggested sealant to help me use the pieces!
Also, can I use rubbing alcohol to remove the fingerprints before sealing?

Ive tried many U.K. resins after having difficulty getting hold of ICE Resin a couple of years ago. None of them should ‘dry tacky’ but the best I have found for jewellery is RF Bright 8102 enamelling Resin, very Clear, domes well etc. Doesn’t need a sealer and cures free from any blemishes.

Hi! Thank you for this wonderful website! Very informative indeed, I just have a question regarding the Craft gloss resin sealer, it may sound like a rather dumb question but I just want to make sure, is it an epoxy resin based spray? Because I too, try to find an alternative, we do have acrylic varnish here and such in France, but they apparently sell resin sprays for sports balls (rugby/handball) use and I thought I could use that as the best alternative here.
Thanks for helping. ^^.
