Stop Put the resin down!!!!!!
There are some things we want you to consider before you start:
1 - Have you got everything you need? Lay your kit out and make sure you have everything in it. Do you need any extra moulds, mixing containers, colours etc. Having your items close to hand is best.
2 - The next step is to make sure you have the space set up ready to get creative, you want to cover any furniture that may be under the crafting area, we suggest a plastic covering if you want to be sure that no resin will soak through. You'll also want the area to be as clean as possible, you don't want your project compromised by dust or pet hair for example.
3 - Can pets or children get to the products? Maybe move your creative space to a higher level, like a table or a separate room where you can close the door if they can.
4 - What is the ventilation like in the room? Can you open any windows, have you got a ventilation system in place that you can switch on.
5 - What PPE do you have? Craft Resin Epoxy Resin is Non-Toxic (when used as directed) and Safe for Home Use! The only reason we recommend to use a mask is because Craft Resin produces a low odour, it is important to note that what customers are smelling are not fumes. It's also a good idea to use gloves, simple thin latex like gloves are fine.
