I really enjoyed making this resin piece. Isn't it so magical creating a small scene or world within a bottle? It's one of my favourite things that's for sure! I use UV resin because you skip all the hard part of mixing things separately as you do with epoxy resin, and for beginners this can seem daunting. UV Resin also cures so fast, all you need is a UV torch and a couple of minutes - usually from one minute to six, and your layer would be hard! With Epoxy resin you need to wait 24-48 hours for your layer to harden, if you're impatient like me, UV Resin offers the perfect stand-in. It's perfect for small projects like this. If you have a larger project using epoxy resin would probably be better suited. If you have bubbles in your piece, don't worry, it suits the ocean theme rather well, so you can get away with it here.
