The professional jeweller’s choice, DOME-IT™ is thick and glossy. A true epoxy resin with a 2:1 mix ratio by weight, dome-it is the ideal choice for discerning makers.
Use DOME-IT™ for filling open and closed back jewellery bezels, adding a final convex cabochon-style layer to existing jewellery, doming badges and even adding finishing touches to artwork.
DOME-IT™ epoxy resin sets in 24 hours and has a strong surface tension, making it ideal for clinging to the edges of jewellery settings.
When you thought it just couldn't get any better, we've knocked it out of the park with this fact... DOME-IT™ is made from materials that would otherwise enter landfill (as it's a by-product of the oil industry). So, buying our pro-jewellers resin means you can create beautiful pieces whilst preventing waste and looking after the planet. Put your hands in the air because you really do care!
There is no such thing as a silly question, and because we're just nice like that, we've compiled a huge long list of FAQs about our resins especially for you to read through with a coffee - check them out here.
It is CRITICAL that you follow the instructions accurately. Do NOT change the mixing ratio - this will alter the properties of the resin and cause it to remain tacky.
DOME-IT™ epoxy resin is thick and viscous but is best used at room temperature. There is no need to warm Part A before use.
Use 2 parts resin to 1 part hardener by weight (2:1) to ensure a hard finish once set. We advise you measure in grams.
Use separate, clean volumetric mixing cups for each part and a larger clean cup to pour both parts into for mixing.
Stir Part A and Part B together thoroughly for at least 3 minutes - this is a long time... set a timer on your phone.
Once mixed, DOME-IT™ epoxy resin remains at its most liquid for around 30-40 minutes, depending on the temperature of your workspace.
Epoxy resins tend to heat up when poured in large volumes (i.e. they produce an exothermic reaction) so we advise you to only mix the amount needed for use within the liquid timeframe of the product. We suggest you mix no less than 10g and no more than 200g at a time.
This resin can be used clear or coloured with our extensive range of colour pigments & powders. Please note that adding anything to epoxy resin will change its properties and may reduce its non-toxicity. If you are adding alcohol inks DO NOT use a flame to remove bubbles, as alcohol is flammable.
You can apply DOME-IT™ epoxy resin by pouring, using lollipop sticks, pipettes, brushes or even rollers. The room temperature should be between 18 to 25ºC and humidity level below 70% (i.e. do not use in a room with drying laundry, pots and pans boiling or kettles on the go).
Make sure your resin piece is level. Pop any bubbles by hand using a cocktail stick, or use a heat gun or naked flame for a couple of seconds to aid bubble release. Avoid dimpling by holding the blowtorch or heat gun at least 20cm away.
If cured at 23ºC this resin should be touch dry within 24 hours and fully cured after 7 days. We advise you to cure your resin pieces in a dust free environment, and keep in the dark for as long as possible. This resin is not suitable for making coasters, trivets or placemats - it will only withstand temperatures of around 45-50ºC.
It is not necessary, but if desired, you can post-cure this resin to maximise its properties. Allow the product to cure at room temperature for at least 24 hours, then heat to 40°C for 1 hour, followed by 60°C for 1 hour, followed by 80°C for 3 hours. To prevent any distortion during the post-cure cycle, the part should be placed on a thick, flat tile. When post-curing is complete, let the piece cool down slowly to room temperature, preferably in a craft oven. Sudden change in temperature can cause distortion or warping.
