With the same refractive index as glass. the Clear InLace can be used 'as is'. The Polylite clear casting resin is designed to accommodate uses which call for high clarity and lack of coloring. These qualities make the Clear Kits ideal for using InLace dyes, and an excellent 'base' for 'starting from scratch' customizing of inlay designs. Note: The Dyes are intended to be used with the Clear Kits.
If using a pigmented kit, the user is beginning with a 'base' inlay that is 'ready to go' and can be used 'as is' with excellent results, or customized with the use of InLace additives. New users can benefit by starting with pigmented kits because the predictability of results and initial successes with early projects and products are more easily attained as the user becomes familiar with using the InLace inlay system. It has been our experience, however, that most users move quite quickly to trying their hand at completely custom inlays, because the Clear Kit is the solid number two selling Kit, right behind the top selling Turquoise.
Simply pour an appropriate amount of resin into the provided measuring cup, mix in additives if desired, add Thicken-It if necessary, and add the needed amount of Hardener. Then, mix into a paste-like consistency and proceed with the inlay. InLace 'sets up' in 12 to 15 minutes. It cures in 12 hours, ready to be sanded and finished using standard woodworking techniques and finishes. InLace kit contents.
If 'small batching' but also using additives, we recommend using the 1 ounce measuring cup to get an accurate measure of the InLace resin, and then transferring to a three ounce measuring cup so that additives can be easily introduced and thoroughly mixed.
