Subject: Clear resin for glass reproduction

Clear resin for glass reproduction

From: Jean Etcheverry <jetche>

I am posting this request on behalf of a fellow restorer. We are
looking for a clear resin to make reproduction of a firing glass (a
british nineteenth-century military glass artifact found on our
historical sites). We have tried  a resin called Mara Glass but it
yellows after a while and does not prove to be satisfactory. Do you
know of a resin which does not yellow, stay clear, transparent that
could be suitable for reproduction of clear glass. Thanks,

Jean Etcheverry, restorer
