I have used both, would say the deco art is less toxic. They say you should wear a respirator when using resin. Unfortunately nothing "quite" compares to the finish resin gives.

Can I ask a quick question?

Where does one get resin from, if I wanted to try it out?

I have a home project I'm finishing up and was contemplating it, but no clue where to buy it, or what kind.

Triple Thick is non-toxic.

Hey gals and guys, I use epoxy resin everyday and it's defiantly more toxic than the brush on or triple thick gloss but for me the difference between finishes as far as durability and looks is undoubtedly worth it.

If you are using resin be sure to use it in a well ventilated area or wear a mask as to avoid breathing it in.

I use enviortex lite which you can find at home supply stores such as Home depot or Lowes.
