ResiBLAST is an innovative, single part liquid additive that can be dropped into wet and coloured art resin to create cells. The additive is commonly referred to as a dispersant, interference or distressing medium.
ResiBLAST is a single part polymeric liquid that reacts with wet epoxy, polyester and polyurethane resins by repelling itself away, thereby stimulating movement in concentric outward circles. It is not a paint or resin and will not cure on its own. This dispersion reaction creates motion into self contained cellular structures as seen in the photos.
- Safe & user friendly
- Non toxic & non flammable
- Non VOC formula with no aggressive chemical, solvent or alcohol ink content
ResiBLAST can be used along with our ResiTINT range of acrylic pigments. For best results add one or two drops of ResiBLAST to a couple of your pigmented cups of resin, pour the resin mixture onto your work and watch the cells form. Applying heat with a heat gun will enhance the effects.
Alternatively, droplets can be added to the pigmented resin surface immediately after mixing/pigmentation. Movement happens immediately and can be further enhanced by applying heat in that area. Do not wait for the resin to gel or partially cure as ResiBLAST will not work. ResiBLAST will not react or affect the curing cycle of the resin. The additive may leave shallow uniform depressions in the resin surface which can add to its optical effect. In addition any residue of the additive will migrate to the surface of the resin and should be wiped off with a dry cloth after the resin has fully cured. This residue can also act as a polish layer to further enhance a glossy resin surface.
