Would there be any benefit in adding "some" powdered metal into the resin mix and shaking it up and then adding the catalyst and shaking it up even more to mix it up and then pouring that into your usual metal shavings mix? I watched a video from Karl Hans Welz who said the finer the metal (dust) the more effective the device is, even without any crystals and this guy claims to have been the inventor and trademarker of orgonite. So I am wondering if there would be any benefit in adding some powder metal into the actual resin mix?

I mix powders into resin all the time but tend to put catalyst in first and mix it real well before I add metal powders.

Happy pouring Smile

I definitely wouldn't "shake it up". That would incorporate a lot of air, and that's not a good thing.

I slake the metal powders by adding them 1/2 hour before pouring and stirring occasionally until smooth. Then I stir in the catalyst and mix well, then add the fine shavings, stir, and pour.

The most important thing is not to have bubbles. I was careless with a batch of TBs and didn't mix well enough, and the bubbles, made up of air and red iron oxide powder, rose to the top of the TBs as they cured and made a royal mess when I handled them. Stains like crazy. Had to recast them.

About bubbles, would they just go away if I shake up the resin and metal powder and leave it for a day?

I bought some bottles with the intention of using them to properly mix the catalyser and resin prior to pouring, in 100ml bottles so I do not waste too much. Sounds like that might be a bad idea??

Try it and see.

I like to use the plastic containers from the paint department with measurements on the side. Mix and measure in one container. A dozen 3 oz TBs take around 30 oz of resin.

To estimate the amount of resin for a given mold you can fill it with water and measure the water, or use rice or dried beans. Subtract a bit for the metal and crystals and always have a spare mold for any extra resin.

best wishes,

Ruth

would the same hold true for powdered quartz? i find that it sinks to the bottom. also have you used titanium dioxide? i like the way it makes the pigment opaque but you dont need much of it so now it's all clumpy on the container and i have to do extra work to break it up before adding it.
