What Will Epoxy Resin Not Stick To?

Navigating the realm of epoxy resin art with Mr. Resin's products opens up a world of creative possibilities. The versatility of our epoxy resin means it can adhere to a wide array of materials, enabling artists to explore and innovate without limits. However, understanding what Mr. Resin's epoxy resin doesn’t stick to (or does) is crucial for successful project outcomes.

What Epoxy Resin Avoids

Non-Stick Allies

  • Silicone Molds and Utensils: Silicone's non-stick nature makes it ideal for molds and mixing containers, facilitating easy resin release and cleanup.
  • Plastic Sheeting and Bags: Epoxy resin does not adhere to certain plastics, making them suitable for protective coverings during projects.

Materials That Embrace Epoxy

Welcoming Surfaces

  • Wood: Enhances the natural beauty and durability of wood projects.

  • Art Mediums: Compatible with acrylics, oil paintings (fully dried), watercolors, ink, and spray paint artwork.

  • Photographs & Prints: Works wonders on both inkjet prints and traditional photographs, preserving them with a glossy finish.

  • Paper Arts: Seals and protects paper-based projects, from collages to origami.

  • Natural Elements: Perfect for encapsulating flowers, rocks, and other organic materials, highlighting their natural allure.

  • Metals: With proper surface preparation, metals can form a strong bond with epoxy, offering a sleek and protective coating.


Materials to Approach with Care

  • Oil Paintings: Ensure they are thoroughly dried, which can take weeks, to prevent interactions with the resin.
  • Porous Surfaces: Materials like unsealed wood or certain fabrics might require a sealant to prevent resin absorption.


Creative Applications and Considerations

Versatile Projects

  • Sculptures and Jewelry: From adding a glossy coat to sculptures to creating stunning resin jewelry, the possibilities are limitless.
  • Functional Art: Epoxy resin transforms ordinary items like puzzles, coasters, and furniture into unique and durable art pieces.

Testing on small, non-sentimental projects before committing to larger works ensures artists can achieve their desired outcomes without compromise. Whether it's exploring the interaction of resin with different inks and paints or discovering innovative ways to embed natural objects, each project offers a chance to learn and perfect your craft.
