Hey 405th. I threw together a Tut for aqua resin since a lot of members seem to be confused by it. Hopefully it will become a sticky. Enjoy.

Hey, Ithica molded his Hayabusa helmet, he's not complaining about being an Elite yet. Lol, you got to wait a long time to become a veteran and post in other parts of the forum. Just let Catec have his Hero time in the noob forum LOl

Very nice tut, i liked how you gave your opnion and stuff. IN the video, you use fiberglass cloth and aqua resin?

awsome job dude! its clearing things up for me since im trying to convince my parents to allow me to work with fiberglass and resin. although why do you put the resin on the fiberglass? is it an activator or does it just work as glue? also when using resin does it take out any detail when you put three layers on, and was that just 3 layers on the outside or 2 on the outside and 1layer on the inside plus the resin with fiberglass? im just wondering.

Resin always has to go on fiberglass. Fiberglass is nothing but glass strands, it is used to strengthen the resin. It works just like any other fiberglass process.
I usually put 1-2 outside and 1 inside coats, and then fiberglass. It doesn't do much to the detail since it is so thin, but I also pre-sand a bid before adding bondo to bring out more detail.

And also I did not use the aqua veil, I used plain woven fiberglass cloth.

I've heard a lot about this stuff, but never tried it out. Thanks for the tutorial! I have a rather large project coming up soon and I think this will be the perfect substance to work with, since I was worried about resin fumes in my tiny garage.

Very nice. I haven't watched the second one just yet, but it's in the process of loading.

One problem in the first video as far as safety goes. Safety goggles and a dust mask. No mention of either one. As I remember from reading the MSDS sheets for Aqua Resin, there is a strong chance of eye and throat irritation when dealing with the powder. They recommend a form of eye protection and mouth/nose covering like the following:

Make a note on the video if you could please.

Aqua resin sounds so much easier than the other ones! And much safer! The problem is that it's more expensive.. Thanks for giving us more info on this materiel.

I was looking into Aqua-resin and saw no retailers close to me so I gave it up. After seeing this demonstration, I might have to give it a try after all.
BTW, I see you answered the crave ;) (in the background)
