Im looking to do my first resin swirl on a 6' board and I would like some feed back on my approach.. My biggest concern since im using Poly would be inappropriate amounts of catalyst in my batches of resin and having them set off too quickly or not fast enough. Ive only glasses two boards but I really want to try this. I have found 2 approaches on swaylocks, and want to know which one is the gives the best outcome
1. Use one bucket of resin, mix base color (orange) to the tone I like. Then add catalyst, mix it. Then add my two other colors with catalyst in them, give it a quick swirl and pour.
2. Mix my base color in a large bucket of resin. Then have seperate smaller cups of resin with differnt color swirl in them. Pour the smaller cups first, then the bigger batch of solid color over top of them.
My concern with approach number 2 is, do i kick all of the batches at the same time. Or should i kick one cup at a time as i pour and design it the way i want to? if so.. since the resin will be kicking off at different times will this effect the way it laminates to the foam with some areas of the resin beginning to kick and some other areas not?
Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.
