Resins are very big right now in jewelry-making and mixed media, but most are 2-part epoxies that take hours to dry. What if you could get the same, non-yellowing jewelry grade effect in about 3 minutes? With Piccolo Instant UV Resin, you can.
Here’s how it’s described on the website:
Piccolo Instant UV Resin cures in sunlight or under a UV nail salon light in 3 minutes.
It is scratch resistant, never yellows and waterproof.
It has low odor and requires no mixing — you apply it right from the bottle.
Comes in 3 sizes – ½ oz, 1 oz, and 4 oz sizes.
This is one of those products that benefit from a video to really show and tell just how it works!
