Will resin dry on its own? [FAQs]

If you’ve ever found yourself asking, “Will resin dry on its own, or do I have to help it out?” you’re not alone!

Will Resin Dry on Its Own, or Do I Have to Help?

This is a common question that many resin enthusiasts ask. The answer might surprise you…with a bit of patience; it will dry on its own!

The Magic of Resin Drying

Resin is quite magical in its ability to dry on its own. Of course, there are things you can do to speed up the process, but if you leave it alone, eventually, it will reach complete curing.

Most resins need at least 24 hours before they are ready to be handled and 72 hours before they are completely cured.

If you want your project to last longer than the 72-hour mark, you should consider using an accelerator spray or a UV lamp for maximum durability.

How Your Environment Affects Drying Time

Keep in mind that your environment plays a significant role in how quickly your resin dries and cures. For example, if you live in an area with high humidity, the wax will take longer to dry because the moisture in the air prevents it from fully curing.

You may also find that specific resin colors take longer than others (due to pigment content). No matter where you live and what color resin you use, if you give it enough time, it will eventually reach complete curing!

So there we have it—resin does indeed dry on its own with some patience and time! Ultimately though, with some TLC and time, all types of resin will eventually reach complete curing regardless of their environment or color!

Of course, if you want your projects to last even longer and become more durable, there are accelerators and UV lamps available to help speed up the process.
