A little secret from the ResinPro team for those who want to get a perfectly glossy surface:
After mixing the two components, it is recommended to wait 10-15 minutes until a temperature of about 40 ° C is reached before casting.
This step will cause any bubbles to rise to the surface, and the pre-curing process will help avoid the influence of moisture on the resin and the appearance of dull areas or imperfections on the surface.

The simple use ratio (2: 1) and the crystalline transparency of the resin are a real joy for all artists!
