⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Amazing Product I use this product for stabilizing stone that has fractures or weaknesses for cutting cabochons. It is the absolute best I've tried yet and at a price that beats all competition. - quachadan

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Very clear. No offensive smell, mixes easy, clear, cured fine. Though it still had a bunch of microbubbles that ruined my castings. More microbubbles then Easy cast but less than Ice Resin. Didn't include instructions so maybe I did something wrong but none of the normal tricks would get rid of the bubbles. UPDATE: I got most of the microbubbles by stirring carefully which it being thin makes it pretty easy... you just have to be careful to not stir too enthusiastically. Update: This is now my resin of choice from here on out.- Tammy Mink

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Best epoxy for casting that I've tried. I love this epoxy. It's the least bubbly of any epoxy I've ever used. It's very clear as well, no yellow tint, as in some other epoxies. And, it's odorless. This truly is a five-star product. As with all resins and epoxies, if you mix it according to the directions (2:1) you will have good results.- S. Harris

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ love this product. love this product! No fails even in 60% humidity easy to cast and very minimal bubbles without a pressure chamber - laurie

epoxy resin for pen blanks liquid diamonds review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Very Nice Craft Resin This is a very good craft resin. It has glassy finish straight out of the mold. The only issue is this resin seems to bubble quite a bit. The bubbles in my pieces are extremely small and only stand out in certain lighting. Another plus to this resin is that you don’t need to be 100% accurate with measurements. Some resins require a scale for measuring, but I’ve gotten along just fine with a measuring spoon. All in all a great product that I would definitely recommend. - dwhi7536

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Super clear Very good product for jewelry but I’m thinking I can use it in a lot of projects. Very clear and shiny. Mixes with paint, powdered colors as well as glitters. - oldstuff-tradingpost

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  This stuff is so good it's scary! In my first order, there was a resin A spill a bit for some reason. They let me keep the set and sent another one free Plenty of mixing time and long curing time. No rush, no mess, and spills. You can use it as a finish on the wood. I actually applied it with a brush. Takes some practice. Take your time. Take it easy. Mix and stir slowly. The bubbles will disappear. Xylene retards it and slows it down more. Acrylics mix well as a pigment with it. Mix it with paint, or spray paint. Repair deep gouges on guitar lacquer finish. It has many purposes. I've tried a whole bunch of things. - nakvakskard

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great Resin I been using this resin for a while and I totally love it! Make sure to use the right measurements when mixing both the resin and the catalyst. Also, use good silicone mold for a nice and shiny finish. I think the bottles are a nice size and they will last me a while since I’m only making small pendants. - melannyz

 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Excellent product I used in multiple molds and always have excellent results. - nenaa53

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ clear like crystal this epoxy is clear glossy like crystal very good for make pendant or anything need glossy, have more time to cure this product is good quality and never disappointed - suh123777

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Excellent for casting! Its crystal clear with no bubbles. I use it for casting pen blanks. It turns like butter! - ceh1016

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Very low viscosity. Water clear and cures hard. I made many things with epoxy resin and this is one of my favorites. It is quite different from many commons resins like Ice Resin, Envirotex Jewelry Resin, Super Clear Resin, and others. It has a much lower viscosity than other resins. After it is mixed it is nearly the consistency of water. It degasses very well and I've had little to no problems with bubbles. I do recommend making sure that both parts of the resin are at least 70F before mixing, as that helps limit bubble formation. Also, it should be left for approx 10 minutes after mixing to allow time for any bubbles to rise to the surface and burst. It has a long working time. This is not a great resin if you are looking to dome projects because it just isn't thick enough. After Liquid Diamonds is cured it is quite hard which makes it nice for jewelry pieces. It sands and polishes well. I would definitely recommend this resin to others. - cdajen1

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Yes to Liquid Diamonds I am new to turning and creating my own blanks so I am experimenting with different resins to see the differences and to figure out which ones I like the most. Liquid diamonds is very easy to color, mix, and cure. I will be using it often for some applications where I have more time because it does have a slower cure rate than others. I love that it is very low in odor and cures completely clear with very few bubbles without a pressure pot.-8588jackie

 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Amazingly easy and great finished products Easy to use. Finished products are clear and very low bubbling. It was my first time using and I was pleasantly surprised. A++++- hmmilky7

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️lovely sparkles great product, my eleven-year-old granddaughter is making some really nice jewelry with the liquid diamonds. - fran1234clem

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Awesome casting resin. Another update after using this for a couple of years: I had a big problem with the surface of my castings having what looked like an oil slick on them. The resin was completely cured and hard but the surface was streaky. After a discussion with customer service at "the epoxy resin store", I started measuring the resin by weight and not by volume. This solved the problem. I no longer get oily looking streaks. A quick update - the original review is below. I had a question about the resin and contacted the Epoxy Resin store via their web site. Their customer service was great! I actually got to talk to a human and he was very helpful in figuring out the answer to my question. Definitely a good company to work with.Original review: I have been experimenting with different types of epoxy resins for jewelry making. So far, this is the best one I've found for casting in molds. It's so super thin that I rarely see a bubble. Even when mixing I get very few bubbles in the cup. The consistency is not much thicker than water and it's super clear without any sign of color tint. I have mixed as little as 3/4 oz (1/2 oz resin, 1/4 oz hardener since it's a 2:1 ratio) and it has consistently cured. A full cure takes about 24 hours. Since it is so incredibly watery, you aren't going to want to use this for doming or for flat surfaces. It's really best for casting. However, if you are in desperate need of doming, you can wait about an hour for the resin to begin to set and it becomes much thicker. You'll have to experiment on the timing however since it varies by the amount you make. As with all resins, follow the directions precisely to the letter. Epoxy resin is very picky about the ratio of hardener to resin! I purchased this directly from the epoxy resin store and not Amazon so this review will not show up as a verified purchase.- Debbie

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️great resin- long cure time. this stuff is very low viscosity. no bubbles! it needs about 24 hours to cure though. the mix needs to be dead-on, and, I've found, that the humidity needs to bed managed for best results. - Corina Pelloni

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Nice Pen Blank Resin. I had been reading a lot of opinions regarding this casting resin, so I decided to give it a try. After I got the box containing the Liquid Diamonds, I tried it out on hybrid pen blanks, in a 3 blank block mold. I did a 2 color pour over some cutoffs from wood I stabilized, without using the pressure pot.The blanks turned out just fine, without any signs of not adhering to the wood. I must say, it was a unique experience to do casting in the house. I’ve found there are things I really like about this resin, and some I don’t.What I like:1) Liquid Diamonds is easy to mix.2) I like the longer (than Alumilite) working time.3) I like the ease of turning it.4) It takes mica powders very well, and those colors mix into the resin easily.5) There is virtually no odor.Now for some things I’m not crazy about:1) The expense of it.2) The blanks don’t seem to polish as well as LUmilite.3) 24+hour cure time.So, in my experience, this may be a really great resin for a person just starting out in casting who prefers not to deal with the fumes and/or mix ratio of PR, or the necessity of a pressure pot required for casting Alumilite. I feel this resin may also have used in the veteran casters' arsenal as well. - T. Tabor

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hard and bubble-free. Wonderful epoxy to use. Straight forward mixing instructions, long pot life. Perfect for those not using pressure pot, sets bubble-free. A little softer than alumilite resin. - Harvey

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️works great - no vacuum - no bubbles, Will be buying this again - RP

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ WHENEVER IN DOUBT GET LIQUID DIAMONDS OUT.OF ALL THE RESINS I USE OR HAVE TRIED THERE IS NO RESIN THAT HAS ALL THE QUALITIES AS LIQUID DIAMONDS. IT IS SO FANTASTICALLY CLEAR. THIS RESIN PRODUCES ALMOST NO BUBBLES WHILE IT IS BEING STIRRED. IF THERE WERE SOME BUBBLES BY THE TIME YOU ARE READY TO POUR THERE ARE NO BUBBLES TO BE SEEN. I SAVE THIS RESIN FOR MY DELICATE WORK AND I USE ANOTHER FOR CASTING RESIN PIECES THAT I RUN THRU MY SANDING AND POLISHING MACHINE. THREE CHEERS FOR THE PERSON WHO CREATED THIS MIXTURE!!!!! - dongomar

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I love love liquid diamond its easy to use !! Liquid diamond is very easy to use plenty of time to work with it !I would definitely recommend liquid diamond it is truly clear not alot of bubbles!At least try it I promise you won't be disappointed! - tafr.us.umlhqt3

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great product and easy to use. - Dale Grzyb

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ great resin. Very surprised at this resin. Loved the outcome. Sticking with this one. - Nicole A. Jaycox

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Great Epoxy Resin for the price. Like the description says, it pours much more like water than most epoxy resins I've used in the past, and there are way less bubbles, though there were still some microscopic bubbles. Potting time felt longer too, which I appreciate. - Leah

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I just tried this for the first time over the weekend. It is expensive, but definitely worth it if you are casting smaller things (a large object would be *really* expensive). I wanted to make a pen that looked like a cigar inside, so I cast a few. You can see both the castings and a couple of the finished turnings I did on a lathe. I stirred it much faster than I should have. I knew I would be putting the mold in a vacuum chamber (to get the air out of the cigar leaves), so I didn't bother with being too careful about the stirring. So the bubbles were my fault . . . and only collected at the edges of the silicone mold. I could have easily tapped or scraped them off, but since I was turning that part away I didn't worry about it. The picture of the bottom of the one casting is to show how well it formed to the mold, the fact that it isn't clear is not the resin, but the rough surface of the bottom of the mold. I did flame the top (even though I was turning that part off) to remove the floating bubbles and to see how clear it would be. You can also mix the activator at 65% instead of 50% without hurting or speeding it up any, and this will make it even thinner with less bubbles (according to the manufacturer). You can see on the finished pens that it looks like crystal, one the fat pen you almost can't tell that there is resin there at all. I pulled these out of the molds at 12 hours and did the finished turning at 24 hours. I see a few people concerned that one of the bottles isn't sealed. This isn't a food product that needs to be sealed for protection, it is just epoxy. The resin is sealed to keep out oxygen for as long as possible, the activator doesn't need to be sealed so they don't seal it. It is supposed to come that way, it isn't a flaw/mistake. - Scott Lucas

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I love this stuff. Good stuff!! - Brian Manley

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Fantastic resin product! One of the best resins I have used! Low odor and cured beautifully. - Serena Frye

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bubble free resin Almost no detectable odor. Very low viscosity resin that makes for a bubble free cast. Left off a star because this kit did not come with instructions, and the bottles weren't full to the top which concerned me. - stephanie

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Good product Love this - donna lloyd

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ As always it is greatly delivered on time and it's exactly what I ordered thank you. - Amazon Customer

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Super thin, no bubbles! The best feature of this resin is that you'll get almost no bubbles at all. It's so thin, almost like water that whatever bubbles appear during mixing, immediately float to the top. The downside to low viscosity is that it's not easy to use this for doming. The only way to do that is to let it cure for 45 minutes or more till it starts to thicken and then it'll dome.Because it tends to leave what looks like a film (or a bit of an oil slick) on top. It cures hard and the "film" isn't sticky or oily. It just looks bad. I've spoken to the manufacturer and started measuring by weight, not volume but that didn't solve the problem either. The only thing I can do to get the clear shiny result is to add a doming layer with another type of resin on top. That's rather annoying but often worth it in order to get the crystal clear look. A word of warning if you use alcohol inks to color your resin. Do not use ICE Resin® Tint Hacienda with Liquid Diamonds. They are not compatible! The blue color will vanish. I've done a test and the blue disappears in less than one month. For some reason, the Emerald and Ruby tints seem to hold their color longer. - Debbie

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Clear Only resin I've used that cured to be clear as glass - John F. Epling

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great product quality. I use this product for casting and encapsulating for use in woodworking, and pen making. Liquid diamonds always produces amazing results. Depending on the material being encapsulated produces bubble-free amazingly clear results even without a pressure pot. Longer working time than most resins. Just follow directions closely and have fun. - Christopher B. Warren
