It's raining today. In fact, at times it's been pouring! The air feels damp and laden with moisture. Not good weather for casting resin!
Having lived through the drought here in South East Queensland, I'm reluctant to ask that it stops raining. But seriously, all this rain is playing havoc with my casting! Polyurethane and moisture just do not mix!
|Resin or Toffee...... what do you think?|
|Annoying! Grrr! Bangle No. 2|
|Bangle No. 1|
Let's have another go.
This is not a job for the impatient. You need a light touch with the Stanley knife to gently shave away the bubbled mass.
|Bangle No. 3|
You end up trimming away a much larger area around the bubbles and it looks pretty awful at this stage.
But a light sand with fine sandpaper cleans it up quite nicely. You can still see some scuff marks from the sandpaper.
To make those scuff marks disappear, all it needs now is a sanding over the whole bangle with a superfine grade of sandpaper.
So, there you have it! You can get rid of those pesky miniature bubbles!
But the lesson here is:"Don't cast resin in wet, humid weather!"
'Til next time......
