It’s a question we’ve had since we first started working with UV resin last year: can you make an ocean resin with UV resin? If you’ve followed our channel for any length of time, you know how. much we love making oceans with resin. However, we’ve always used the longer cure resins, which can have their own set of unique challenges. You have to be mindful of keeping dust out while your project is curing, you have to make sure it’s level (else it will run while it’s curing) and so much more.

But since UV resin cures only with UV light, it is SO much more flexible! Not only do you avoid the things that can pop up during the cure time since it’s instant (when you’re ready to cure), but you can also fix issues, which is harder with longer cure epoxies.

That’s why we wanted to figure out how to make an ocean resin with UV resin. And while the process is a bit different, we figured out how to make it happen. And now, we’re ready to share that info with the world! So check out the tutorial below to see how we did it!
