I haven't used any other brands of casting resin yet, so I have nothing to compare it to. I'm experimenting with this after watching youtube videos on the best methods. It works great & I have found that you do need to follow the directions or your crafts will be a bit soft. It works & looks just as advertised.
So this is the first time i have used any form of 2 part epoxy and i must say i am thrilled! i have had the chance to compare it to other forms of resin and it may not become *as* hard as others but it in no way is this stuff soft. other resins can come out like glass but EasyCast will always feel like plastic. I don't mind this plastic feel at all and since other resins that cure harder tend to smell so strong you need a chemical mask to use them i will be sticking with the nearly odorless EasyCast. It cured crystal clear! the bubbles were easy to pop and rose to the surface easily. i was worried i wouldn't be able to use it in time (you should only buy what you can use in 6 months of opening or a little longer if unopened) but this is so easy to use i just couldn't stop. i think next time i buy i will be getting at least 2 packs. it has a 1:1 mix ratio so its easier to mix than some other types but be warned if you are off on measurements even by a little it will either not get hard and feel rubbery or will stay sticky so measure well and mix extra well! its a good idea to get plastic measuring cups just for mixing resin in. medicine measuring cups work well. *DO NOT* wear nice clothing when using it and *ALWAYS* wear gloves. its a pain to get off hands and can't be taken out of clothing.
