Judikins Gel Du Soleil - One Part UV Cure Resin - Cures Crystal Clear And Waterproof -

This little bottle packs a wallop and is so easy to use! Gel Du Soleil is a one part resin which cures in 20 minutes when exposed to a UV light. (You can also set the piece in direct bright sunlight but curing times will vary.) It cures crystal clear, hard and waterproof. It is a little expensive but the easy pour spout allows you to use every drop and to control the flow so that you can use exactly as much as you wish. You can achieve a high domed effect by using multiple layers or else spread the resin thinly for a lighter coat.

Here's a hint - when using any kind of resin on paper, it's always a good idea to first seal the paper. This keeps the resin from soaking into the paper and giving you a dark translucent effect. You can use clear packing tape, transparent shelf liner, laminating film or a silicon based glue like this one in my shop:
(But do not water-soluble sealers like decoupage mediums - they add extra moisture and can prevent resin from curing properly.)

Air bubbles are easily removed by passing a heat source like a hot air/embossing gun or butane lighter a few times over the gloss very quickly. (Do not over heat as this may burn clay or substrate surface and don't heat too close or too long as you might blow dust onto the resin).

Ok - you're asking what's the difference between Gel Du Soleil and Lisa Pavelka Magic Glos? I've done a lot of experimenting with the two and each has its benefits:
• Magic Glos is a little cheaper but the applicator tip tends to give you more bubbles so you have to be very careful when applying it. I use a hot air/embossing tool to expand and pop the bubbles. You get virtually no bubbles with the Gel Du Soleil applicator tip.
• Gel Du Soleil is a little thinner so if you want a high dome effect you may have to add an extra layer or two until you get the look you want. You can usually get the high dome effect in one shot with the thicker Magic Glos but you have to be extra careful about those bubbles.
• Other than than, Gel Du Soleil and Magic Glos are virtually identical when properly cured. So it's pretty much just a personal preference as to which one you use. I use both!

Contains 5/16 oz. / 9.24 ml - (this is enough to do about ten rings with slightly domed tops - you can see samples of finished pieces in the second and third photographs).

I'm so sorry but because of postal regulations I can only ship this item in the Continental US and Canada.
