Results with Resin

A quick update on the test with resin:

Notes, this is polyester resin, not epoxy resin, thus it is hardly useful for presentation purposes unless you want to drop in an insect and fake a fossil, nevertheless here are the results of my casting attempt.

I cast my 555 flashing LED timer into the “Amber” aaaaaaaand… it cracked due to too much catalyst. I have not seen catalyst like this, it’s a sort of paste so measuring 2-4% by volume is near impossible.

Here’s a picture to show the little waste of time.

Here some components which weathered the storm of cracks…

The crack on the LED and some resistors, amazingly they survived.

Here’s a pic of my top secret project!

This is the circuit (properly made of course) to go into the clear resin, notice the simple components…

More to come soon…
