Krylon UV-Resistant Clear Gloss Spray for High Shine Glossy Effect on Resin (311g)
Students and customers always ask us this same question, "How do you polish resin without the need for buffing machines or power tools?"
We have 2 amazing solutions for you, and which solution you should go for depends on the original appearance of your resin piece and the final effect that you are trying to achieve.
1) Spray your resin piece with clear gloss varnish:
This is the best quick fix if you do not want to polish or sand your pieces. We recommend using Krylon's clear gloss spray as it is non-yellowing.
Simply spray 2 to 3 layers of Krylon's clear gloss spray over your resin piece. Make sure you spray evenly and leave some time in between each layer to dry.
Your once dull or matt resin piece will instantly have a high shine, glossy, 'wet' appearance.
This clear finish also protects surfaces from damaging UV light rays.
Provides a permanent, protective coating
Protects against fading
Coating is moisture-resistant and smudge-proof.
Dry to touch: 10 minutes
Dry to handle: 5 hours
For use on: Wood, Metal, Plastic, Paper Mache, Glass, Plaster, Ceramic, Dried Silk Flowers, Paper, Wicker, etc.
Please use in a well-ventilated area and ensure that personal protective equipment is worn.
2) Manual polishing by hand:
If you do not fancy using a spray, you can purchase our resin polishing kit to manually polish your resin piece.
This method works best to restore shine in dull and faded resin surfaces, such as resin casts that appear dull as a result of an overused mould. However, please take note that it will not result in a 'wet', high gloss appearance.
This method will not work for deeply scratched pieces. If your pieces are deeply scratched, we recommend using jewellery-grade sandpaper to remove the scratches, prior to polishing your piece.
