I’m just going to keep doing this until it works. Lol.
The third attempt has been the most successful to date! I just had one spot where it pulled away from the corner.
To achieve this end I did the following: mixed in a larger cup so I could mix a larger quantity (200 mL was too much, 100 too little), changed the quantity of color (I think it’s a little too dark now), and put it on the dryer to be agitated. We’ll, I put it on the wood resting on the dryer, so it might not have been as vibrate-6 as it could have been. I also went back to check on it every about 10 minutes and popped any bubbles with a lighter. I did find that the one I did in the blister pack greatly warped, I’m assuming from the heat.
So I would not recommend using that thin of plastic for larger pours. For the smaller one, I had no such issue of warping.
To recap, these are the 3 steps I have taken so far.
I have learned something every time, and each change has brought good results. I hope this has helped anyone else attempting this.
I’m going to do a fourth pour tonight. My changes will be: mix 150 mL batch, add the same amount of color as I did for the smaller batch, and agitate directly on the dryer. I’m also going to do the initial mixing for a longer period of time. Just in case I’m not completely mixing it and that’s the reason for a big bubble in the corner?
Let me know what you think!
