FUTURE SELF HERE: WEAR AN ORGANIC FUME APPROVED RESPIRATOR FOR FUMES. PAPER PAINTING/SANDING MASKS ARE NOT APPROVED FOR RESIN CASTING (OKAY FOR SANDING WHEN PROJECT IS CURED). DONT BE LIKE ME IN THIS VIDEO...BE SMARTER THAN. LOL THIS VIDEO WAS MADE YEARS AGO AS A LESSER EDUCATED ME. EPOXY RESIN IS AN ALLERGAN AND IS TOXIC WHEN NOT INERT (SAFE TO BE WORN IN TYPICAL JEWELRY, USED IN TUMBLER/CHARM/BOX MAKING, ETC..HOWEVER NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CANDY DISHES/CHEESEBOARDS/ETC). THERE ARE ALOT OF HORROR STORIES OF RESIN USE/CRAFTING...EDUCATE YOURSELF, PRACTICE PROPER SAFETY PROTOCOL (AGAIN, NOT LIKE ME IN THIS VIDEO), AND HAVE FUN. - GRIMMSCRAFTINGTALES
