Having grown up on the beach but being landlocked made me really want to recreate a little piece of the ocean. I’ve always loved looking through blue water. Well for anyone who saw my previous post I will say that smooth on “so strong” mixes swimmingly into the clear resin. I did premix a small cup so it blended more evenly in larger tank. Form2 had no idea the resin was tinted and this does not seem to have any effect on final strength or polish.
Here’s where I’m fuzzy and want some advice…
Epoxy or more clear resin to seamlessly glue the 2 together with…little bubbles? (I want to control where these bubbles go eventually)
Sanding is important and clarity. As of now I have plain old guerilla clear epoxy and think it’s actually the best way. I’m worried that adverse effects occur when I try to use my blue handheld laser or sunlight to cure through the clear to glue these together. Another important factor will be the paint I use over white to look like reef. I still need a bond to occur and am not sure if painting it will negate any and all bond between these?
The base is white resin too btw and yes they keyed together on the first try!
