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.
First off, as earlier noted, it is thinner or less viscous than either ICE Resin or Envirotex Lite. It is less desirable for doming. I have also noticed a little bit of film on the surface of my pieces, right in the middle, usually a thin line. This is a problem for pieces that I cast where the top surface is NOT the bottom of the piece. I measured very carefully, as I have with the other types, and I seem to have that sticky film in the middle quite often. Yes, I did as the instructions said; I poured into another mixing cup and used a new stirring stick after 2 minutes of mixing. While the odor while degassing is less noticeable, the time it takes me to feel light-headed from the fumes is about the same as with other types (yes, I am in a fairly well-ventilated room). The fact that it uses up twice as many materials to mix it (and twice as much time as well) is also a bit of a turnoff for me. Envirotex Lite also recommends using a second mixing cup, but mixing time in each cup is only a minute. The problem with Envirotex Lite is that it heats up rather quickly and is therefore not advisable to use for deeper pieces. ICE Resin does not have that limitation. EasyCast takes longer to cure as well.
With as many disasters and failed experiments as I've had with this particular product, I think I would much rather stick with ICE Resin, even with the higher price...and Envirotex Lite for the pieces that I can work on in layers. I find EasyCast hard to work with, and that may just have something to do with me being a beginner. However, I would think that any product with a steeper learning curve would turn some people off, especially when it pales in comparison to other types and brands. I do not think less of Environmental Technology; I will still use Envirotex Lite. At this point I am not even sure I want to just use up what EasyCast I still have (about 90% of the bottle).
Update: Do not use alcohol inks if you are bent on trying this resin. I tried mixing in denim (blue) and it came out aqua. I tried mixing in all shades of brown, and they came out yellow. I decided to use up what I had left. If even half of the pieces I cast today come out okay, I will consider it a minor success and a lesson learned. No more EasyCast for me.
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.
