FAQs for Resin Beginners
How to Prepare Your Workspace
When working with resin, ensuring your workspace is safe and organized is essential. Start by clearing the area of any clutter and making sure there’s nothing around that could be flammable or dangerous to work with. Next, cover your working surface with old newspapers or plastic sheets to avoid staining.
Having everything within reach can help minimize distractions and keep your workspace clutter-free, so prioritize organizing all of your tools, supplies, and resin in a way that’s easy for you to access and use. Also, clean up any spills or messes right away, and always discard materials properly after you’re done with your crafts.
Put on protective gear like gloves, and an apron, and make sure the working area is well-ventilated by opening windows or using a fan to circulate air. Our resin has a low fume formula, but when adding heat fumes can be harmful, so you should always ensure adequate air circulation in your work area to avoid breathing them in.
If your children are helping you with your projects (not recommended for young children), provide them with age-appropriate safety gear and explain any safety rules to them beforehand. Make sure that they understand what not to touch and stay away from so that they enjoy a safe crafting experience.
By taking all these precautions into account, you’ll be able to better focus on your resin projects and create a safe environment for you and your crafting buddies.
