I'm using Castin' Craft Clear Polyester Resin, and so far it's good, however I have the problem of orgone remaining sticky on one side after being removed from the mold. Leaving it in the sun for a few hours will generally fix that, however carrying a pocket piece will often stick to the inside of my jeans.

Any suggestions to decrease this?

I read someone suggested lacquer spray to give orgone a superior coat of protection.

I ran into this issue before and spray lacquer does seem to help. Sensei and a couple others mentioned using car wax as well, but I haven't tried that.

Both Castin' Craft and the catalyst have a shelf life. Usually the cause of stickiness after curing is old MEKP Catalyst or expired resin.

Try a new bottle of catalyst or use 25% to 50% more of the one that you have.

Thanks. Car wax is an interesting idea.

I do not see any expiration date on the can of resin however.

"I'm using Castin' Craft Clear Polyester Resin"

Why?

We mostly use Sylmar 41 ($37.00 a gallon, including catalyst), or Sylmar 249 ($38.00 a gallon, including catalyst) from U.S. Composits. I only used the Castin' Craft once when I ran out in the middle of a project. I had the sticky issue too.

Is there an official brand I have to use to be a member?

I used what was readily available and I had a coupon. If Sylmar is superior(I wouldn't be surprised), I can try to get some though I don't use enough to justify a bulk order. Shame I'm not in close proximity to other orgone makers for a supply collaboration.

Heavens, no! It's just that the resin in the most expensive ingredient. Freshness is important to the quality of the final product.

I'm not trying to shill for U S Composits, but there are several reasons I choose to buy from them. The product is high quality and ( relatively) reasonably priced. The resin is fresh. The catalyst is included. They ship promptly. I can buy quart, gallon, or 5 gallon cans. They have real employees who know their product, and if they can't answer my questions they find someone who can and get back to me.

There's a lot to be said for just doing it. There's a lot to be said for finding local sources. Whatever works for you.

I had the same issue when I first started (stared with that same brand too) ever since, I add more catalyst. My first remained sticky even months afterwards. I no longer use a 1:1 ratio

FWIW here is a link to a document with useful tips for using polyester (not epoxy) resin:

How do you use the car wax? I just got some pieces today that were slightly sticky and stinky, never happened before. Assuming they didn't harden enough yet before they were sent. It's not bad enough for me to be worried, it's just noticeable if you hold it and I don't wanna need to wash my hands a million times over just cause I had to move it again but I also don't wanna turn a tiny situation that isn't a bad one anyways into a big toxic mess of one.
