Challenges of living in Queensland - Heat

Living in Brisbane Queensland has it's advantages but with my resin creations I am limited to only pour when the temperature is right.

The optimal temperature is 25 degrees.

In my little none air conditioned studio, it doesn't allow for me to create all year round unfortunately :(

Disadvantages in the heat - it reduces your working time - I have had resin 'go off' in a short period of time and starts to harden in the mixing cup, then you can't pour with it and it is wasted.

It can take longer to cure - it usually is best to leave items for minimum 7 days for the resin to cure. This can delay creating a large piece, if you need to do several layers.
