At first I found it really difficult to use the UV dip because the 'bubble' kept popping before I even get the piece to the lamp but eventually after a lot of practice, I found a trick which is to dip the wire horizontally and not vertically like how you see them use non-UV resin dips! Dipping vertically only works for non UV types! I strongly recommend dipping horizontally to get more even pieces that are less likely to pop right after you pull them out. Another reviewer recommended to start with small frames and this is absolutely true, I found that bigger frames usually ended up having holes in them when the resin eventually cures in the lamp if the layer of resin is too thin. Start with smaller frames then eventually work your way to bigger and more complicated frames. My one real sort of gripe with the resin is that it only comes in such a small container. This severely limits the size of pieces you can make with how large the opening of the bottle is, and finding a jar suitable to transfer the resin into (like how they do in non UV types) is very difficult because the jar needs to be UV proof so it won't accidentally cure on it's own. As for the packaging itself, luckily both my bottles didn't leak and I got them in perfect condition. Oh and this is more of a me problem, but since the opening is big and it has a tendency to drip onto the 'screw' portion of the bottle for closing and all- yeah make sure it's clean before you screw the bottle shut or be prepared to clean…

It is definitely tricky to get a smooth and thin resin layer. The resin is really thick, so it flows slowly from your wire frame, and you need to learn by experience when you have just the right amount of resin on it to cure. Too much, and you get unaesthetic bumps; too little and you will end with holes as soon as you cure it. Smaller frames are easier, so begin with those. For bigger shapes, use wires of bigger gauges and try to cure it asap (or the own weight of the resin will pull it down and pop out of the frame). However the size of the pot limits the maximum size/length of the frames you can use. The thickness of the resin also means that as it flows back into the pot, it will trap air bubbles (a lot) and you will get them on your wire the next dip. I found that you can get rid of most of them with a heat gun, and wait a while to cool down the resin. But it's a product that allow for fun projects, for someone like me that has no access to similar (air dry) products.
