The perfect resin for creating resin art and adding clear coatings to artwork

The popularity of resin art and adding glossy clear coats has grown hugely in the last few years and GlassCast 3 is a versatile epoxy which is ideal for both types of project.

Art work in other mediums can be created before adding a super smooth and glossy resin coating to preserve and protect the artwork. It also adds depth and enriches the colours. Alternatively, resin can be used as the medium and by adding pigments and additives can be used to produce intricate works of art with a perfectly smooth, glossy surface, without the need for polishing.

What makes GlassCast 3 so popular for these types of art projects?

GlassCast 3 was developed specifically as a coating resin and no other resin has a smoother, glossier surface on its open face. This makes it perfect for adding coatings and pouring resin art and is the reason why so many artists choose GlassCast 3 for this type of project.

GlassCast 3 advantages for art coatings and resin art

 

  • Glossy surface finish – GlassCast 3 is a purpose-made coating resin, no other resin has a smoother, glossier surface
  • Medium viscosity – Slightly thicker viscosity than a casting resin, GlassCast 3 self-levels
  • Ideal cure time – 30mins pot-life allows plenty of working time
  • Solvent free – GlassCast 3 is solvent free with almost zero odour
  • Self-degassing – No need to degas for bubble-free coatings
  • Hard wearing - GlassCast 3 is incredibly tough and hard-wearing
  • UV resistant – GlassCast 3 has very good resistance to UV, ensuring your art coatings look great for years to come.
  • Hard wearing - GlassCast 3 is incredibly tough and hard-wearing
  • Compatibility – GlassCast 3 is compatible with Culr epoxy pigments and Shimr metallic powder pigments to create beautiful colours for resin art

Getting Started

Ambient Temperature, Pot-Life and Pour Depth

The GlassCast range of resins, in common with all epoxies, generate heat as part of the curing process. The amount of time the mixed resin can spend in the pot, as well as the maximum depth it can be poured at, will vary depending on the ambient temperature.

For best results, we recommend working in a consistent room temperature of 18-20°C. GlassCast can be used in temperatures from 15 to 25°C but higher temperatures will reduce the pot-life and the maximum pour-depth of the resin significantly, as shown in the table below.

Ambient Temperature 15°C (minimum) 20°C (minimum) 25°C (minimum)
Maximum Time in Pot (Pot Life) 45 mins 30 mins 22 mins
Maximum Pour Depth 9mm 6mm 3mm
Initial Cure 36 hrs 24 hrs 18 hrs

What to pour on to

  • Art boards – like Birch Ply
  • Reinforced Canvases - to avoid sagging
  • Existing surfaces –create your own style and look by pouring on to ceramic, glass, alternative wooden surfaces and much more

Adding different colours and effects

Well, this is where the fun starts! Make the colour palette for your resin-art by adding a wide range of pigments, tints, metallic effects, glitters, glow powders and more to your resin. Alternatively, add dried flowers, sand, shells and much more!

Inspiration, and help if you need it

My favourite Resin to use to create my art -Glass Cast 3!

I use this resin for artwork and usable artwork (trays, coasters etc) and nothing else compares. The work time is spot on, and the versatility in different temperatures and humidities is fantastic; I’ve not had any problems with amine blush with this resin but have with others in the same conditions. My only wish is for Glasscast to bring out a heat resistant top coat!

I love this resin. It's The sixth brand I have tried and I'm now firmly sticking with it. The glasscast 3 gave a totally crystal clear, stunning high gloss, almost mirror finish. It self levelled perfectly despite My slap dash approach to not levelling properly. I clear coated My paintings in one coat and it really does look like crystal clear glass. Best resin I've used and would highly recommend to anyone.

Can’t tell you how pleased I am with my penny floor, great tutorial and very helpful technical support to all my questions over the phone, I was so apprehensive about getting the resin right, as I’ve never done a project like this before, but I mixed and poured the resin today and it looks beautiful like a sheet of glass, thanks for all your help
