It's a 1 to 1 ratio and that makes it really easy for measuring out. I just use those little cough medicine cup measures but it depends on how big your project is. Be sure to use something that is disposable because this would be very hard to clean out of a measuring cup.
The smell is interesting, it actually smells a little sweet and chemically. I would recommend wearing a face mask and gloves when working with this so it doesn't get all over your hands. It's very hard to get off and can cause skin damage
The only problem I've had with this resin is that it takes a much longer time to dry than others I've tried. I left the resin in the silicone mold for 2 days and still had trouble getting a couple of them out for some reason they were stuck to the bottom and the inside was still tacky. I've never had that happen before so I'm not too sure what happened there. But overall it's been easy to work with.
This stuff is very thick and needs to be warmed prior to use to get it to pour smoothly. When the instructions say to measure EXACTLY one part resin and one part hardener, they aren't kidding. If you are off by a miniscule amount, your resin will be tacky. The curing time on this is very long, but I was aware of that, however, none of the pieces I have cast actually 'hardened'. While evening holding a cured and properly mixed piece it starts to soften immediately from the warmth of my hand and becomes flexible. After the numerous tutorials I have watched online and experience now with mixing this crap, I can tell you that it is not operator error but product failing to perform.
While I will not purchase this resin again, I have found that this stuff takes mica pigment very well as well as glitter. Perhaps this resin is inadequate for what I am trying to cast, but it seems like I should have had a few more successful pieces that what I do. Going to be trying a different type of mold, but I am not hopeful. I've also read reviews stating this has a shelf life of approximately nine months. If that is the case, perhaps my batch (as well as the one you are considering to purchase) have already gone bad. If you are looking to use this for smaller casts such as jewelry, pass on this. It is garbage.
Note: I did NOT receive this product for free or a discount. I paid for this product in full with my own money.
I'm going to try spray coating with something that resists the heat but haven't tried it yet. But for the cast itself, it's very straightforward, doesn't smell while curing, and comes out very clear. Depending on your use, you'll have to work out the best method to avoid bubbles, which is not always easy.
You do have to measure this product like all resins, but this is an easy 50/50 mix, and it takes about 24 hours to set so you have plenty of time to play with it.
It works well in silicone molds, like shaped ice cube trays.
