Amazing Clear Cast Resin is an easy to use epoxy resin which does a brilliant job both as a casting and a pouring/coating resin!
A clear casting resin which works well for both thin coats and deeper casts. The Amazing Clear Cast Epoxy Resin is a fantastic product which allows you to create all sorts of projects; from coating photos and drawings, paintings and paper crafts, and filling bottle tops, to casting blanks, large bangles and paper weights. The ideal resin for both resin crafts, resin jewellery making and wood turning.
- Easy to use - ideal for beginners to resin crafts, jewellery making, pen blanks and turning. Just mix equal amounts of the two parts.
- Does both thick layers and thin coatings - it is rare to find a resin which does both well!
- Casts into a multitude of mould types.
- Nice long work time, 45-50 minutes.
- Ready to remove out of the mould in about 18-24 hours.
The Alumilite Amazing Clear Cast Epoxy Resin mixes in equal ratios (1:1 by volume) so very easy to measure up equal amounts of both parts.
Works perfectly with our resin moulds, with no release agent needed (however, release agents are a good way to extend the life of your mould). Can also be cast into plaster, aluminium, latex and urethane moulds if a mold making release (like Vaseline) is used.
Don't use water based dyes or colours with this resin. Our Alumilite Dyes are ideal (which come in a huge range of colours, including fluorescent neon colours!), as well as any dry colours. For gorgeous shimmers and high quality metal effects, use Mica Powder Pigments or the Alumilite Metal Powders. For a glow in the dark effect, use the Phosphorescent Powder!
Can be sanded, wet sanded, and/or buffed.
This kit will cover approximately 2-4 sq.ft. if used as a coating. Amazing Clear Cast works best if cast in less than 3/8" thickness, for thicker pieces, it is best to do it in layers.
470ml is 16 US fl.oz.
This resin has a weight of 500 grams.
Mix ratio: 1:1 by volume
Work time: 45-50 min
Demould time: 18-24 hours. For deeper casts, allow 24-48 hours.
Please note: To help with thickness, keep the Alumilite Clear Cast at a minimum of 21°C or heat the thick side in a bowl of hot tap water for 30 minutes prior to use. The thicker ACC is poured, the cloudier it can be. For thicker castings, multiple pours of 6mm - 16mm approximately 4 hours apart is recommended.
TOP TIP FOR STORAGE: Keep the caps of each resin bottle on tight at all times. Even during use, pour out what you need, then put the caps back on immediately until your next use. This will keep your resin in good working condition for as long as possible.

Very good product, excellent service
I coated the inside of a wooden Flower Vase with this product to make it water proof, worked like a dream
First time I have used this product after having a bad experience with a different product. Was great and the finish was fantastic easy to use and the plus was no smell was a bonus will be buying again
I've previously been using a 2:1 ratio resin so this 1:1 was an adjustment, but I was excited to use it as I've been trying to find a brand that yellows less over time, which this one was recommended for on an external site. I can't comment on this yet as it takes years for resin to yellow, but I found that this one captured thousands of miniscule bubbles that I couldn't remove either via vibration or butane torch. The smell is also one of the worst I've come across, all my clothes stink afterwards and you can smell it throughout the house despite the window being open and the door to my studio closed. It plays well with alcohol inks though, I've given that a go with leftovers. I'll finish out the bottle but will try a different brand when it's running out.
First time using epoxy and this is easy to use and provides a lovely finish
First time iv used resin but was a great start! easy to use No smell Mixed well Didn’t bubble much
