It works but I'm not too impressed with the hardness. It's too weak and flexible when you mix 1:1 in my opinion.
Amazing Clear Cast Resin is an easy to use epoxy resin which does a brilliant job both as a casting and a pouring/coating resin!
A clear casting resin which works well for both thin coats and deeper casts. The Amazing Clear Cast Epoxy Resin is a fantastic product which allows you to create all sorts of projects; from coating photos and drawings, paintings and paper crafts, and filling bottle tops, to casting blanks, large bangles and paper weights. The ideal resin for both resin crafts, resin jewellery making and wood turning.
- Easy to use - ideal for beginners to resin crafts, jewellery making, pen blanks and turning. Just mix equal amounts of the two parts.
- Does both thick layers and thin coatings - it is rare to find a resin which does both well!
- Casts into a multitude of mould types.
- Nice long work time, 45-50 minutes.
- Ready to remove out of the mould in about 18-24 hours.
The Alumilite Amazing Clear Cast Epoxy Resin mixes in equal ratios (1:1 by volume) so very easy to measure up equal amounts of both parts.
Works perfectly with our resin moulds, with no release agent needed (however, release agents are a good way to extend the life of your mould). Can also be cast into plaster, aluminium, latex and urethane moulds if a mold making release (like Vaseline) is used.
Don't use water based dyes or colours with this resin. Our Alumilite Dyes are ideal (which come in a huge range of colours including flourescent neon colours!), as well as any dry colours, like Pearl Ex.
For high quality metal effects, use the Alumilite Metal Powders, which comes in most metals you might want like; pearlescent, bronze, gold, copper and silver. For a glow in the dark effect, use the Phosphorescent Powder!
Can be sanded, wet sanded, and/or buffed.
This kit will cover approximately 2-4 sq.ft. if used as a coating. Amazing Clear Cast works best if cast in less than 3/8" thickness, for thicker pieces, it is best to do it in layers.
470ml is 16 US fl.oz.
This resin has a weight of 500 grams.
Mix ratio: 1:1 by volume
Work time: 45-50 min
Demould time: 18-24 hours. For deeper casts, allow 24-48 hours.
Approx 470ml (16 fl. oz.) - This resin is also available in a larger size (7.5 litres) here.
Please note: To help with thickness, keep the Alumilite Clear Cast at a minimum of 21°C or heat the thick side in a bowl of hot tap water for 30 minutes prior to use. The thicker ACC is poured, the cloudier it can be. For thicker castings, multiple pours of 6mm - 16mm approximately 4 hours apart is recommended.
TOP TIP FOR STORAGE: Keep the caps of each resin bottle on tight at all times. Even during use, pour out what you need, then put the caps back on immediately until your next use. This will keep your resin in good working condition for as long as possible.

Regarding health & safety, we always recommend doing your own research, and make your own decisions on any precautions you need to take. Read the SDS and get advice if needed. We suggest ensuring you have good ventilation, and protect your skin and eyes (use nitrile gloves only, don’t use latex with resin). If you work with a large amount of resin, or work with it often, you might want to invest in a VOC filtered face mask.
GOOD NEWS - THIS RESIN CAN ALSO BE SHIPPED TO OUR EUROPEAN CUSTOMERS!
Very glad of my first order, fast delivery and matching quite to the order. This quality product, quite easy to use, had been recommended to me by Carl Jacobson, professional wood turner. In the end no bad surprise, on the contrary good and only good. The turning of Alumilite resin is no problem (no bursting, no pieces) and the finish can be perfect (for me to learn and perfect my work!) Thanks for all Lacey and thanks also to Mr Don Fowler from METAL CLAY LTD. DORSET, ENGLAND who redirected me to you. Gérard Camélis

great product , very fast delivery and friendly customer service. Definately will shop here again.A+++
This is a very easy resin to use. Being a 1 to 1 ratio, its very easy to measure, no need for fiddly scales. It hardens in a reasonable time and the results are fantastic. I've been making resin jewellery for a few years now and have used other resins in the past but Clear Cast is the best by far.
Was a very good casting poly. It has morfed into orgone healing pyramids and healing jewelry, Thanks for the good service and nice quality stones
Amazing clear resin is great for making stabilised wood and resin pen blanks gives enough time for degassing the resin in vacuum chamber. Great results and turn really well.
I have never used resin before, but Clear Cast is very easy to mix and work with. It leaves no bubbles and is just perfectly clear and beautiful. I will definitely buy this product again. Fast shipping. Thank you!!
Price is OK. Service is fabulous. Shipping : Perfect!
ive been using resin for about a year now and didnt like the one i was using so decided to try this and i wont be going back to my old stuff. This is amazing and the pieces come out beautiful and for the price you cant go wrong =]
I found the clear cast easy to work with & the finish that was obtained by mixing your gold powder to the resin & coating the inside of the mould was very pleasing as mentioned in one of the other reviews l would have liked the viscosity to have been a bit thinner but over all a very good product with virtually no odour would recommend.
I molded some large blanks in a pressure pot ready to turn fantastic
I have been using this product now for some time I cast my own pen blanks and adding glitter or alumilite dyes I get some funtastic results , I would recommend is to any of you wood workers casting pen blanks or casting woods within the resin itself , Great service as always from the team at metal clay
After using easy cast for a few years it was suggested that I try this. Well, the results were excellent on my jewelry pieces. It did not take as long to set in the mold, did not shrink at all, and did not need the high temperatures as room temperature was sufficient. So a very satisfied customer here.
First time using the resin. Excellent
After using Gedeo resins for some time now, I tried the Amazing Clear Resin. And I think its great. Easy to mix and clears up beautifully. Great product which I can recommend. KR AHA. Denmark
Well packaged. Plenty to keep me going. VERY HAPPy
This was awesome just as good as Ice resin and half the price
I had been using Envirotex Lite and Envirotex Jewelry resin but decided to give this a try based on the reviews below. I've tested it in shallow pours and in small silicone moulds and both turned out great! The resin sets beautifully clear, it's great not to have to spend ages trying to get rid of bubbles. Highly recommended!
It is very easy to use even for absolute beginners as me. There isn't any smell and bubbles go away easily. I used this resin in silicone molds and it came out very nicely. Highly recommended!
After years of using Gedeo I thought I'd give this a try. I really appreciate the 1:1 mix ratio! Gives my poor brain a rest. However the parts are very high viscosity which makes measuring small amounts rather tricky. On the plus side it seems to clear itself of bubbles perfectly well when left to cure, and really is amazingly clear when it comes out!
I have never used resin before. After being recommended this product by a member of staff here, I was impressed with how easy it was to use! Highly recommend this!!
I have used a few clear resins but this is by far the easiest, clearest and quickest of the lot. Bubbles clear mostly by themselves unless you are encapsulating something that traps air in which case I let it sit when mixed until the bubbles have gone and pour slowly. I set flowers in resin and they look fabulous in this resin :)
I purchased this for my first ever resin casting experiment and for an absolute beginner it was fabulous. I used a plastic multi jewel mould (also purchased from this site) and the finished cast resin pieces which I inset with dried plants, glass beads and metal charms came out so crystal clear and beautiful. Just follow the instructions exactly and it does exactly what it says on the package.
