It is your responsibility to ensure you have read all of the health & safety information we provide. Take a look at our Health & Safety page for more general info on working with our products
- Contents: 200g BASE and 80g LIQUID - in recyclable containers
- Mix Ratio: 2.5 parts BASE : 1 part LIQUID (e.g. 10g powder = 4g liquid | 100g powder = 40g liquid)
- Stir thoroughly for 2 minutes
- Working time: 20 minutes (can be doubled using a drop or two of slow-it retarder)
- Can be thickened using thicken-it thixotrope (for use on curved surfaces)
- When mixing we like to measure our JESMONITE liquid first and sprinkle on the base powder whilst stirring constantly. This means less air bubbles and less chance of any mottled effects.
- To reduce large bubbles spoiling the surface of your creation, use a clean paintbrush to cover the inside of your mould with mixed JESMONITE before the main pour. Once dry, fill the rest of the mould.
- JESMONITE has its own range of colour pigments (how cool is that) although you can also use our neon powders and acrylic inks to give a range of dense opaque colours - remember though that as JESMONITE is off-white, any colour mixed in will lighten (therefore meaning you will need more colour!).
- DON'T FORGET - adding our opaque, transparent, metallic or neon resin pigments (which have not been specifically designed for JESMONITE) will make the colour appear much lighter and could affect the cure of the piece. Now we don't want that do we?!
- Can be displayed externally when used with a suitable sealer.
- JESMONITE has not been tested for food safety - by all means use JESMONITE for decorative tableware, but please make sure you use an approved food-safe sealant.
