For beginners 1ml of resin per oz of cup (with no glitter or texture), is suggested amount of resin to use. ArtWorks Resin, iCoat Medium Viscosity or iCoat countertop Epoxy work well on cups due to the thicker viscosity & higher gloss. Thinner viscosity such as Liquid Diamonds can be used as well. Liquid Diamonds is a much thinner viscosity (like water), so take that in to account when trying to cover a cup.
On a 20oz tumbler, you can expect to use roughly 25-30ml of ArtWorks Resin, or either of the iCoat countertop epoxies, depending on the type of glitter used.
**Chunky glitter takes more resin. Some tumbler makers like to use anywhere from 2-3 coats of epoxy, but chunky glitter usually is 3 coats for the nicest finish.
Tumblers with ArtWorks Resin or iCoat countertop epoxies can be shipped out after 72 hours. But as per all resin items, never package resin items directly touching any plastic materials.
