How To Mix Acrylic Resin for Marble Countertops

Step 1: Protect yourself by wearing a mask and a pair of gloves

Step 2: Measure equal part Acrylic Glacier Resin and equal part Acrylic Glacier Hardener in separate containers
Amy’s Tip: If you put more hardener than resin, it’ll feel sticky, like it never really dried

Step 3: Pour the hardener into the resin container
Amy’s Tip: Scrape the sides to make sure you don’t leave any in the container

Step 4: Mix using your tongue depressor, or wooden spoon, or plastic spoon. Stir for 3 minutes.
Amy’s Tip: Mix it slowly to prevent bubbles. If bubbling occurs, you can use a hair dryer or a heat gun to pop them

Now you know Amy’s fool-proof technique for mixing acrylic resin that helps prevent it from feeling sticky after drying.
