How do I mix super clear resin?

Is there a minimum of resin I have to mix?
You need to mix a minimum of 10 cc of Part A (resin) to 5 cc of Part B (hardener) in order to get the proper chemical reaction and hardening to occur.
Are there any special mixing instructions?
Pour the hardener in a little bit at a time while mixing the resin. Pouring all the hardener in at once may cause the mixture to heat up and cure quickly. This is especially the case if you are working with volumes totaling more than 3 ounces. For this reason, we recommend mixing no more than 3 ounces total (of Part A plus Part B) at once. Be sure to also scrape the sides of your cup and stirring utensil while mixing.
