Resin has become a popular material for crafts and DIY projects in recent years, thanks to its versatility and beautiful, glass-like finish. However, not all resins are created equal and with technology there are cleaner system resin that is more versatile to use. At Seed & Spark, we use ArtResin in our classes because we believe it is the best choice for both safety and quality.
Why Use ArtResin?
ArtResin is a non-toxic, no VOC, and FDA-approved resin that is safe to use at home or in the studio. Unlike some other resins, it doesn't give off harmful fumes or require a respirator to use. This makes it a great choice for beginners or anyone who wants to work with resin in a safe and healthier way.
But safety isn't the only reason we love ArtResin. It also produces beautiful results. ArtResin is crystal clear, self-leveling, and doesn't yellow over time like some other resins. It is easy to mix and pour, and produces a smooth, high-gloss finish for our cheeseboard and coaster workshop.
