Nice effort , No matter what hardener you use you still have to de pot the resin onto your work or a plate as soon as possible.
Finish one side completely , first one layer , let harden, clean up opposite side early if necessary , then 9 more. Wax the new side a couple times , especially the edges/creases, of part to mold, then light coats of hairspray to perfection and you should be fine. I did another run with just resin when the edges came out really shitty and the mold came out best ever.
A mast takes 2 or 3 hours for me to layup , so time is a factor but multiple batches of medium speed will not get out of control
I still have meltdowns regularly, try not to breath the smoke, I bet it is not healthy! Has anyone seen flames ,really??
Spring is coming
