    I just bought the Polytranspar artificial water. I pour part A into a small bathroom drink cup. about 10 cc or so. then added two drops of the cat. (part) B

    mixed then poured onto the wax paper. left it overnight and still not set up. What did I do wrong.

    I'm wanting to make up splashes and then water ripple. So does anyone have any better ideas to use this product. Or mixture ratio .
     
  2. I don't think the 2 drops of cat will do much. Maybe check the recommended ratio again. I don't know because I don't have specs on the material, but 2 drops for 10cc's seems low.

    Never thought much of the "drop" thing. Get some triple beam scales and add 1.5 to 2% MEKP by weight. Mix really thoroughly and remix in a clean unwaxed cup. Keep 70 to 80 degrees.
