*This resin is meant to be used in extremely thin coats on items such as pens.
It is not meant to be used to dome, create jewelry, or coat acrylic blanks. You will want Resin Rockers Original UV Resin for those projects:)
See how it works: FULL TUTORIAL
Resin Rockers Skim Coat is the first UV Resin geared towards full coverage, quick coating for pen making, and other items such as scissor handles, badge clippers, handheld tools, and more! It has a self-leveling property that works just like epoxy and is built for paper thin coats. It is perfect for glittering your projects!
FULL COVERAGE WITHOUT THE PAINT! As long as you are using a full coverage glitter, you will not need to paint your pens prior to glittering. Just sand, resin, glitter, and resin! DONE!
PLEASE READ: Your safety is our #1 priority so it is important you follow all precautions. This goes with any brand of UV Resin. Resin Rockers UV Resin Skim Coat is a quick cure, medium viscosity coating resin, and adhesive chemical. Everyone reacts differently to everything, so it’s important to wear nitrile gloves, a respirator mask, and appropriate clothing to protect your skin, in addition to working in a well-ventilated area.
- Age recommendation for use is 15+
- Wear nitrile gloves to protect the skin in case of an allergy. We sell finger cots, but please note they are latex.
- Wear a mask if you have respiratory sensitivity. All brands of UV Resin can let off fumes when it first starts to cure. It is the chemical reaction that occurs when the UV light penetrates the resin itself. We always recommend safety precautions with any chemical product.
Lamp Wattage and Cure Time
We recommend using a 24-54W UV lamp - the higher the wattage the faster the cure. You may go up in wattage if you prefer, however keep in mind the higher the wattage, the more fumes you will emit.
Very Thin Coats Done in Layers & Glazing
Great for layering thin coats with a gloved finger (Finger Cot) or thin silicone brush or paint brush. If coating pens, this formula is more viscous, allowing you to coat quicker and more even.
Repair & Adhesion
Adhere phone grip or badge reel blanks, rhinestones or pearls to your pieces (great to bling up your pens)
Sealing, and Protection
Finish custom pens or other pieces that require a thin coat while providing maximum UV protection to prevent yellowing over time
*Pro Tip: If adhering UV resin to a piece that was coated with epoxy first, sand lightly with 1200+ grit sandpaper and wipe clean with rubbing alcohol and a lint-free cloth
How to Coat with UV Resin Skim Coat:
Prep piece as directed and make sure it is clean. Using a gloved finger, squeeze a small amount directly onto the piece you would like to skim coat. In the same direction, run your gloved finger along the piece until an even coat is achieved. Add glitter or vinyl if you choose. Allow the resin to self-level and then cure under the lamp for 60-180 seconds. Repeat until you reach desired look.
What Products Can I Use with Resin Rockers UV Resin Skim Coat:
Only use polyester glitter formulated for resin (PET). Do not use too much or your piece may be brittle. Resin makes the piece more durable and there needs to be enough of it throughout.

Use Pro Pearl sparingly (a dusting). If you use too much it will not cure properly.
