Can the Rio resin be used for other things, like molds? I know that's probably a dumb question but I've never worked with resin but have been really wanting to try it for a long time.

Does this Rio stuff have the two part mix you have to do? I have a resin sitting on my desk not used yet, the ET stuff. I'm scared to use it.

from their site
Colores Doming Resin System



Item Number: 623014

Use versatile doming resin as a sealant to prevent oxidation of metal surfaces - use it artistically on charms and picture frame components to magnify objects or images below the domed surface - you can even tint the resin to create an antiqued sepia effect over photos!

Ah so it seems its mostly for uses where you want a dome shape to really bring out an image. Thanks for the info.

I have great results with the ET lite but I think I have better results since I live in the desert. It always dries faster that the directions claim and I figure that is why. I am also very careful about measuring and mixing which is also important. I do get bubble but I have a culinary torch that removes the bubble instantly.

part of the reason you are getting such good results is that you are in a area that has very little humidity.

humidity plays a big part of drying time
