Uh yeah, this is obvious right, but what kind of resin should you choose? For jewelry bezels, the Resin Obsession crystal doming resin will give a beautiful, domed finish to your bezels, regardless of the shape and size. For molds, you need a crystal-clear casting resin like the Resin Obsession super clear resin. This resin mixes thin, making it easy for bubbles to rise to the surface and pop before curing.

Mixing supplies

If UV light makes resin items yellow why do they say to use UV light to make resin hard?

Hi Adele, that’s only with UV resins. For two-part resins, heat causes the mixture to solidify.
