heya im really hoping someone can help me ot here...im new to making orgnite and seem to be having difficulty choosing which epoxy/ fiberglass liquid resin to buy or order in rather because in winnipeg no one seems to have larger quanties of it. i dont know if im just overthinking this all or what, maybe its simpler than ive made it out to be but ......from what ive found there are differant kinds of fiberglass liquid resin...some can be cured to be clear (also more costly) some turn out yellowish, some ive found say they do not shrink when cured which are mainly the ones that harden clear. but that is also a problem then right? dont we need resin that does shrink so that it creates the effect on the quartz crystals......so does it matter if its shrinking or none shrinking, clear or colored, ect ect...what exactly should i be looking for, any recomemded brands?...the prices vary here quite abit from $40- $120 a gallon and the sometimes even more because the hardener does not come with it....*yikes* irregardless im still dead set on making these.

PS; are there any active gifters here in Winnipeg or Manitoba, Canada? if so id love to chat Smile

This might help. If you look at the ingredients, it should say it is polyester.

I use the fiberglass resin for TBs since it is not very pretty and dark in color. It turned out fine. I use 2 part epoxy for clear pours for necklaces and other things i want to be clear. You can get clear resin and then color it with dyes for more artwork pours. There are plenty of other posts around this forum that give more information if you dig a little bit!

Here's a website you can buy poly resin from and plenty of dyes for color and other additives to get rid of the stickiness!

Good luck!
