Super easy to use and really vibrant strong colours. I used these pigments in jewellery and plant pot casting and have achieved great results. A little goes a long way, a drop or two at a time is all you need. Mixing is also easy, so you can create any colour you like. Be careful it can stain wood surfaces and clothing.
Great when you know how to use it.

Delivery from MBFibreglass was next day and entirely reliable.
The Light Primer can be tricky to get a good finish. It is sensitive to humidity and you'll need a good scraper (and bank balance) if you use this in a humid environment. The results when used at above 70% relative humidity are horrible.
The resin component is heavy and on opening the tin it needed a good stir. Allow time to do this - it's important to getting the best out of the product. When you think you've stirred it enough - spend another few minutes stirring – perhaps more than a few.
When mixing with the hardener there’s more important stirring to be done – more active and over a shorter period of time. Once mixed there’s a limited pot life so time is crucial. There’s only one way I found to do this successfully – by mixing small batches (less than 200ml – I found 150ml about right). Larger batches don’t mix properly in the limited time – the heavier resin will sit at the bottom of the tub.
Drying/hardening is sensitive to temperature and keeping ambient temperature above 15C seems to work fine. In Northern Ireland 15C+ can be rare and artificial heat may be needed. Do not use direct heat on to the surface – just focus on the ambient temperature. Using an IR lamp is not advised – it produced disastrous results for me.
There may be a better way of getting the best out of this product and I’d be interested in hearing about it. This primer is not forgiving of errors – when it goes wrong it goes badly wrong – sanding is unlikely to fix it.
Used properly this primer is great. A few basic rules; avoid high humidity, stir well, use small batches, keep the temperature at 15C or above and don’t use direct heat.

Excellent product.for repairs to 3D rubber archery targets.The results are really good consistency of foam to stop arrows and heal itself. Ideal mix is for medium mix at 100-33, and do the repair at +25 degress. Follow the instructions and you will not be disappointed.

This acetone seems to be the best by far to date, I have used so many different types of acetone and found this one works very well on all my nail clients, thumbs up
