how to make simulated water resin? Answered

Have been using a prod called "Quickwater" to set up branches in small metal dishes.  This product is unavailable & rather expensive.  I think I will eventually need about 2 to 5 gallons for my project.


The Quick Water product is also known as "acrylic water". In any case it is rather expensive, primarily due to its 'exceptional transparency'. There are a variety of other products available and searching based on a "casting resin" will yield you the best results.

For example there is a Florida based company HERE that sells Polyester Casting Resin. For 5 gallons, the cost is $144 U.S. 

Unless you plan to become an Organic Chemist, purchasing a product will likely be your only option.

I am guessing you can't make it as such. It is most likely a polyester resin.

Clear casting resin may do the job bust isn't cheap either.

Try to find a bulk supplier as the more you buy the cheaper it will be.

You don't say where in the world you are.
