You will need to also have ready:
- extra nitrile gloves (usual sizes S, M, L or Xlg)
- painters tape for sides & bottom of panel substrate,
- a bbq lighter, chefs butaine torch plus can of butane, or propane torch
- alchohol wipes, or baby wipes, or rubbing (ispropyl) alcohol (above 90%).
- paper towel
- timer (set for 4 minutes)
- parchment paper
- level to check your substrate is level before beginning
- tootpicks to pick out any hair or other items that might land in your resin art while working
- an infrared temperature guage is handy but not a necessity in beginning (to check temp of resin & room & substrate).
For manipulating the resin to achieve certain effects & techniques, there are additional items you will want to have handy while creating: Resin artists often use a heat gun &/or blow dryer to move resin. I often try to use non heat generating manipulators such as silicone spatula or palette knives, I also use parchment paper to make swipe movements, but other items can be used for swipe manipulating as well.
