Option 1. Recoat with another layer of freshly mixed resin and hardener. If your resin surface is only sticky in a few spots, you can fix sticky resin by coating it with another layer of mixed resin. You may need to build a tape dam around your piece or prepare to handle resin running over the edge.

Can resin rings get wet?
So, water doesn’t have a negative effect on resin, but it does encourage tarnish on metal. But, beyond regular care there are some special requirements and emphasis on different things (storing in a dark place is IMPORTANT for resin jewelry!).
Does resin jewelry turn yellow?
Exposure to UV light is the most common reason for epoxy resin turning yellow. When UV light hits the cured epoxy resin, whether directly or indirectly, the natural process of degrading the polymers within is sped up.
Does resin crack easily?
No. Anything made with a doming or coating resin is likely to dent or bend but not break if dropped on a hard surface.

Is it expensive to make resin jewelry?

How long does jewelry resin take to cure?
Many resins cure in about 24 hours in normal settings, but some resins can cure faster. UV resin cures in minutes when placed under a UV light (or a little slower when placed in sunlight).
How do I start a resin jewelry business?
Why is my resin bendy after 24 hours?
In most cases, the reason you have resin that bends is due to the fact that the resin needs more time to cure. After 24 hours, ArtResin will be at a 95% solidity rate. If you attempt to curve or move the resin before that 24 hour mark, the resin will likely bend.
Why is my resin still sticky after curing?
Sticky, tacky resin: This is often caused by inaccurate measuring, not mixing thoroughly or by curing in cold temperatures. Try moving your piece to a warmer spot: if it doesn’t dry, re-pour with a fresh coat of resin.
Why does my resin not harden?
If your ratio of resin to hardener is off, your resin will not harden. If the ambient temperature in your workspace isn’t ideal, or if your resin mixture has been contaminated, this could also cause your resin to not cure correctly.
How do you size a resin ring?
Unfortunately, there aren’t any good options to resize resin rings. They aren’t like metal rings (gold, silver, etc.) that can be cut and recast or resoldered. If you are lucky, the shank part of the ring is very thick.
