    Pressure pot advice

    Hi guys,
    Lots of people seem to be making there own blanks here in the UK so I'm assuming that all the equipment has been acquired here, has anyone a recommendation for a supplier and a pressure pot, Also is there a clear medium similar to Alumilite, think I'm after a smell free type if possible
    Cheers Stew

    Hi Stew.
    I bought a paint pressure pot from amazon and spent about 15 converting it.
    The pot is rated to 80psi but rarely go over 40.
    I use a resin called resin 4 art. Off eBay. It was the cheapest I could find while experimenting, but it’s actually a decent resin. You get about 45mins open time.

    As for material I've found this good

    http://www.easycomposites.co.uk/#!/r...ble-resin.html

    Downside - it takes 48 hours to set.
    Upside - You don't need a pressure pot.
