ArtResin Artist’s Studio Torch

This ArtResin Artist’s Studio Torch is a mid duty handheld torch allows you to easily eliminate bubbles from your ArtResin surface for a flawless finish. Powered by butane*, its blue flame instantly reaches 1300º C / 2400º F.   Each fuel fill lasts 60-90 minutes. Safe for indoor use. After you pour your epoxy resin, you need to apply a heat source to get rid of all the bubbles created while mixing the resin and hardener together. Please note: Butane Gas not included. Gas refill is available here

There are a couple of important things to keep in mind when torching:

1) Hold the torch a few inches above your artwork

Turn on your torch according to the instructions. Hold the torch a few inches above your artwork, just close enough so that the flame lightly kisses the surface of the resin. You should see the bubbles disappear before your eyes, like magic. If you don’t see the bubbles popping, move in just a little bit closer.

2) Keep your Torch Moving

You’ll also want to keep your torch moving at all times in a back and forth motion as if you were ironing clothes. Give the entire surface of your artwork a couple of good passes with the torch, until all the bubbles have disappeared.

TIP: When it comes to torching, less is more! You don’t want to end up over-torching your resin, which is what may happen if you hold your torch too close to the resin surface or in one spot for too long. Over-torching can result in dimples or ripples in your resin surface, yellowing and even burn marks! Read more about over-torching in our blog.

There’s just one more thing we need to do: look at your artwork at eye level under a good light source to spot missed bubbles or stray bits of dust or hair. We love keeping toothpicks close by for exactly this purpose!

TIP: If you don’t have a light source (like a bright window ) near your work surface, use a flashlight! It works great!!

The last step is to cover your work to protect it from bits of dust or hair or even bugs landing in your wet resin.

TIP: We love using a large cardboard box with the flaps cut off. A large plastic tote works great too!

Cover the piece with a box to fit your artwork and wait.

In about 24 hours, your piece will be hard to the touch.

After 72 hours, it will be fully cured and ready to display and admire.

PLEASE NOTE:

Always exercise common sense when working with a naked flame:

  1. Always point the flame away from you when igniting or using the torch.
  2. Never leave a flame unattended.
  3. Keep the lit torch well away from flammable substances.

Running a flame quickly and systematically over the entire resin surface will eliminate trapped bubbles and won’t cause a flammability risk, HOWEVER this changes if foreign products have been added to your resin, such as alcohol or alcohol inks. Alcohol is flammable and will compromise the non-flammability of pure ArtResin. (For this very reason we developed ResinTint, our non-toxic, non-flammable premium colorant for ArtResin. If you’re looking for a colorant and you want to keep ArtResin’s formula non-flammable and non-toxic when used as directed, then ResinTint is the perfect option!)
