Resin8 Gel Epoxy Resin is the perfect resin to put onto a curved surface such as a ring or bangle. It forms a thick coating that sticks to the surface and does not run off the edge or sides. Gel resin is thixotropic resin by nature - i.e. it is a viscous substance that will flow (become thin, less viscous) over time when shaken or stirred. 

Resin8 Standard Epoxy Resin is for cold enamelling, doming and casting. It is ideal for adding a lovely high dome layer to finish off flat pieces because of its viscous nature and can also be used for casting small pieces. Standard Resin must be used with the matching Standard Hardener.

Resin8 Low Viscosity Epoxy Resin is a good all purpose resin for cold enamelling. It is thinner than Standard Resin which makes it easier to use when embedding objects, casting large pieces and filling jewellery mounts. Low Viscosity Resin must be used with the matching Low Viscosity Hardener.

JESMONITE is a non-toxic, water-based resin system that is made up of 2 parts – a mineral resin powder and an acrylic liquid. It is not the same as traditional epoxy resin because it is an opaque material that does not have a shiny surface unless it is polished, varnished or waxed. However, it is very user friendly because of its non-toxicity - it is solvent free and contains no VOCs. JESMONITE creates surface textures beautifully when cast into moulds and jewellery mounts. It can be fragile but is reinforceable with special fibres. Pigments can be added to it to give a range of dense opaque colours and it can be used for internal sculptures and in some jewellery applications.
