Let's Resin Colored UV Resin Kit Test
As the first colored UV resin kit we feel confident to recommend to our readers, Let’s Resin Colored UV kit exceeded our expectations in most of our ranking categories. The only category that Let’s Resin UV Resin lost points in was Affordability. The kit itself is not priced too expensively, but for the amount of UV resin you are actually receiving, the price is a tad bit on the high side.
Let’s Resin Colored UV Resin kit includes twelve colored UV Resins. This is handy, as you do not need to mix in pigments to color the UV Resin. It is done for you, which means you will not run into issues with curing that occasionally happen when too much pigment is added to a UV Resin.
As far as the colors go, they are transparent after cure. Most UV Resin kits that are colored are transparent, so this was not surprising to us.
Here is a picture of what each color in this Let’s Resin UV resin kit looks like when cured:
Let's Resin Colored UV Resin Colors
Included Colors: Black, White, Red, Ruby Red, Pink, Blue, Sapphire Blue, Green, Purple, Yellow. You can mix colors to get a broader color spectrum.
We found the color accuracy was good, except, due to the transparency, the red looks a bit pink and the black is almost clear. So, if you are looking to make opaque UV resin projects, this is not the way to go.
You will be better off buying a clear UV Resin and adding the pigments yourself.
However, for beginners resin artists, this is a great kit!!
You can make some really neat projects with ten UV Resin color options.
Let’s Resin UV Resin has a slight odor that disappears once the object is cured.
Another bonus of this kit is that the instructions are included and clear. The steps to use the colored UV resin are easy to follow and understand.
The included instructions state that a 36W UV light source is suggested to cure the Let’s Resin Colored UV Resin. However, we suggest using at least a 54W UV light source to cure Let’s Resin Colored UV Resin. Because Let’s Resin UV Resin is pre-colored, we found it tough to get a full cure with a 36W lamp. A 54W lamp, however, worked very well.
Be sure to cure your UV resin art project on both sides. For example, here are the steps we suggest you take:
- Pour UV resin into your transparent mold and cure for 2 minutes.
- Check that the UV resin piece is hardened on the top side and demold carefully.
- Flip UV Resin piece over and cure the other side for another 2 minutes, or until cured all the way through.
The thin nozzles on the UV resin bottles are very handy for pouring into small detailed molds and for pouring separate colors in separate areas of your molds. Let’s Resin Colored UV Resin also works well for filling jewelry bezels or open back blanks. This product is not suitable for large projects.
Although our product arrived with no incident, many others have had issues with shipping of the Let’s Resin Colored UV Resin Kit. Some report that the bottles arrived half full, while others noted the bottles had leaked all over the packaging during shipping.
Let’s Resin is a reputable resin art product distributor and I am confident they have made adjustments to their packaging after hearing about these shipping issues, so you should not have any issues.
