Why am I Left With More Resin in One Bottle Than the Other once Finished a Resin Kit

Updated: Jun 2, 2021

Often when artists are finished their resin kits, they find they have more of one part than the other (this is common in all brands). This can occur for numerous reasons.

It is very common to have more of one part A (resin) or B (hardener) left than the other. Our bottles are filled by weight, & the manufacture often adds a bit more (so people actually receive more volume in bottles than stated). This is also why you should never dump both bottles into mix cup assuming they will be desired amount. Always measure by a manufacturer’s recommended suggestion.

With ArtWorks, Part A is heavier than Part B, & this resin must be measured 1:1 by volume (measure in cups). This resin can NOT be measured by weight. With Liquid Diamonds Casting Resin, both Parts A & B weigh the same. This is a 2:1 ratio resin, that can be measured by weight (scale) or volume (graduated measuring cups). Just remember to use double amount of Part A Resin (the bigger bottle), to the amount used from Part B Hardener (the smaller bottle).

Some artists mentioned measuring Liquid Diamonds by weight helps alleviate the overage of one part, but I have still seen that occur occasionally (although a bit less).

***We do sell half kits of ArtWorks Resin & Liquid Diamonds Casting Resin in all sizes when requested. To request a half kit be added to website (to make available for purchase), please use website “contact us“, to advise us which resin type (ArtWorks or Liquid Diamonds), which kit size, & which part (a or b), then I will add to site as per request.

This half kit request needs to be done via website “contact us”, so we can confirm inventory of said item first, & then we can then adjust inventory of full kits accordingly at that time as well.
