      Hello there, I am a very new person to UV resin. This past Sunday I worked all day making my first piece, and it looks wonderful! My only problem is: it’s really sticky. It’s been sitting on wax paper for 4 days and everytime I touch it and pick it up it’s sticky. I did however use powdered latex gloves for the project, but only for a short time I don’t know if any powder actually got into the resin, which I now know can have an effect. I also didn’t use a UV light to cure it, rather I used sunlight, which it was cloudy that day but nonetheless should’ve cured in 20-40 mins. I’d really appreciate someone’s help!

      Hi Abby,

      It sounds like it didn’t get enough light. It’s been my experience that cloudy days don’t provide enough UV light for UV resin to cure.

      I used a small uv light and still sticky. Any thoughts?
