The materials needed for clear casting are water clear casting resin, catalyst (hardener), measuring syringe, plastic mixing cups and a mould. Opaque or translucent pigments can be used to colour the resin if desired. Wet and dry paper, and polishing compound, will also be useful to finish off the casting. Finished castings can be filed or sawn, A protective mask should worn to shield the eyes and mouth.

Synthesis by Tom Price. The tar initially appears black, but on closer inspection, green vapour trails can be seen drifting from a surface partially melted by the reaction of the curing resin. As the tar heats it expands, searching for pathways within the resin creating wafer thin golden slivers of coral-like protuberances. The effects of the synthesis of these two disparate elements – one black and dense; the other clear liquid – results in a riot of colour & explosive formations
