Hello fellow artisans.

I have a question for those of you who have worked with resin. I work with cast paper, my forms are hollow and I need something to strengthen them so I can expand my size and shapes. Plus i would feel better if I could trust that they will hold up over time. So I've been working on coating the insides with a cheap fiberglass resin, which works really nicely but I think I need to upgrade what I'm using. I need something that dries very hard, preferably clear and sets up fairly quickly. I'm looking at Crystal Clear 220 but it's pricey and I think might be more complicated than just mixing in a hardener. It's also a bit pricey, but if it's the right material I'm willing to pitch it out.

Don't worry, I'm aware and terrified of the toxicity so am fully equipped with all safety gear.

Thanks,

Sally
