    ARC Acrylic Resin Australia Made

    ARC is Just Resin's own Acrylic Resin Composite. This eco casting resin comes in two components, a mineral powder base and a water-based acrylic liquid. Also known as eco resin, acrylic resin is a versatile and environmentally friendly material that has gained popularity in recent years. It consists of a mineral powder base and a water based acrylic liquid, typically made from gypsum, plaster, or plaster of Paris. While it can be cured with regular water, this will result in a weaker finished product. However, by incorporating the water based acrylic resin, the material gains significantly more strength. The acrylic liquid acts as a binder to effectively combine all components. This type of plaster casting material is opaque white to off-white and features a semi-gloss or gloss finish (not to be confused with epoxy resin). For further information on how to use acrylic resin, please refer to our How To Use Acrylic Resin guide.
    In addition to coasters, trays, sculptures, art-based castings, jewellery, and terrazzo effect castings, acrylic resin can be used to create a wide range of items. The possibilities are endless, and it's very easy to make. In contrast to Jesmonite products, ARC is Australian made. Australia wide shipping available in 1.75kg ARC Kit, 3.5Kg ARC Kit, 7Kg ARC Kit, 14Kg ARC Kit and 28Kg ARC Kit sizes.

    Using Acrylic Casting Resin For Resin Art

    When it comes to creating mesmerising acrylic resin art, ARC acrylic casting resin is the perfect choice. To begin, ensure you have all the necessary resin mixing materials and accessories - including ARC pigments for vibrant castings, resin mixing cups. Start by weighing 2.5 parts of the mineral powder base and 1 part liquid and incorporate approximately 80% of the required water-based acrylic liquid. As you mix these two components together, a thick paste will form. Keep stirring until the paste becomes uniform and free of any clumps. Now it's time to add the remaining liquid and continue mixing until everything is well blended. To give your castings an extra pop, tinting ARC with acrylic resin pigments is ideal. Begin with just a few drops and gradually increase as desired, making sure not to exceed a 2% ratio in relation to the total mixed weight.

    After pouring your mixture into moulds or other desired shapes, allow sufficient time for demolding, typically around 35-40 minutes for ARC resin. However, keep in mind that certain coloured pigments may prolong this process slightly depending on weather conditions and other factors such as size or type of silicone mould used (especially enclosed moulds).

    Once fully cured, ARC exhibits a beautiful white/off-white satin finish which can be further enhanced through sanding, sealing or polishing with wax polish or coated in epoxy resin if desired. The possibilities are endless when working with this incredible eco-friendly casting compound.

    So go ahead and unleash your creativity using our exceptional water-based casting resin, if you're an experienced artist or just starting out on your artistic journey.
