- Ultradome is a very cool UV Curing Resin that I have been using for several years. I love it!
- The new dark plastic bottle design, helps to prevent curing in the bottle. Long fine tip for pouring onto project with precision and control.
- With this product, you need a UV Lamp to cure the resin.
- I use a 36Watt UV Lamp (Four 9 Watt bulbs), which gives a better cure than the smaller 9 Watt (one bulb) lamps found at Michaels and on eBay.
- I show several examples of the UV resin on a variety of polymer clay pieces… Thick and thin… With holes and without… One side and double sided.
- Resin gives lots of added strength to thin polymer clay items, and to pieces with holes drilled into them.
- The beautiful, clear, glassy, domed finish of UV Epoxy Ultradome product will enhance the color and shine of your polymer clay jewelry creations.
- Resins in general, work best on flat pieces.
- UV Epoxy resis is a self doming resin. The crisper the edges of the pieces you are covering, the higher the dome you can get.
- Ultradome does not pull away from edges like other products do… such as Magic Glos and Glossy Accents.
- This product is very easy to use.
- It cures fast Cure (20 – 25 minutes in a UV Lamp).
- Easy to remove bubbles using an open flame from a hand held lighter device.
- There is no mixing with Ultradome… it is a 1 part product.
- I didn’t mention it in the video, but Ultradome UV Resin is less expensive than other UV Resins on the market.
- I used a plastic resin mat with raised bumps to lift my piece up from surface. This makes putting resin on thin pieces much easier.
- You will see how to apply the UV Epoxy resin direct from the bottle.
- Use a pin or needle tool to draw the resin to the outside edges of your piece.
- Pop any bubbles that show up by using the an open flame barbecue lighter.
- Make sure your work surface is level when curing.
- After the resin is fully applied, the cure under UV Lamp for 20 – 25 minutes.
- Clean up with rubbing alcohol.
- Make sure that UV light can always get to all resin coated surfaces. In other words, you don’t want surplus resin seeping under or behind any areas that will be shielded or hidden from the UV light.
- Make sure any glues you may have used in the construction of your jewelry item are completely dry before adding resin.
- Clean metal objects with rubbing alcohol before adding any resin.
