The first rule of resin casting is to keep moisture away from the resin. Any contamination & the resin will bubble and will create a flawed casting. But what happens if water is deliberately introduced to the resin? Will resin form huge bubbles? Will the resin geyser like Coke with Mentos?
The experiment mixed 1 part water with 2 parts resin. The heavier resin floated to the bottom of the container & resisted mixing with the water. Only after the excess water was drained from the container did the resin begin to set up. I was disappointed that the resin/water mix only created a substance some thing like oatmeal. No 10x expansion in volume. No flowing river of bubbly resin. Looks like I need a Plan B to make my toxic chemical soup.
The rest of the project is part of a terrain building surge for Adepticon. The project will mix the Hirst Arts Pipe molds with Imex plastic kits and a bit of kitchen garbage including water bottles & soup cans. The resin does serve one purpose – the fragile plastic bottle is now supported by the internal coat of resin.
