I absolutely love this product! Speedball's pen cleaner worked wonders on my art pens and a fountain pen that had dried. My fountain pen's plunger reservoir was completely dried and filled with flakes of paint, and I didn't want to throw the piece away. I filled the plunger with just a little of the cleaner, let it soak over night, and voila! This product isn't harsh-- doesn't tarnish metal or warp plastic-- yet cleans perfectly. The holes in nibs can be difficult to clean, but a drop of this cleaner gets it spic and span. There is never any residue or film left behind in your pen, so your next refill of ink will not be tainted. Just remember to rinse off the cleaner, just in case, as the bottle specifies. Also, there is no harsh odor, like some pen cleaners. It is hard to find in large sizes in local stores. My stores only sell small quantities, and the prices in a store are unreasonable. Overstock, however, provides a wonderful value with fast shipping!
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.
OK, so somehow I was totally not wanting a pan pastel tray. I wanted the pan pastels. I must've been in LaLaLand when I checked on Overstock the day I ordered this thing. I should return it, but I'm lazy. I'll hang on to it and maybe order an actual pan pastel color now and then to fill it up. Than could take years! Ah well...'tis what I get for browsing for something cheap to buy after midnight.
