CEL is primarily used to coat artwork but can also be cast to a depth of 5mm and remain clear, if a deeper casting is required we recommend CER Clear Epoxy Rigid Resin or UltraCast XT Clear Art Casting Resin
- UV resistant
- Optically clear
- Table tops and bar counters
- Can be cast up to 7mm depth
- Badges, emblems and jewellery manufacture
- Flower-setting and paperweights
- Doming and decoupage
- Electronic encapsulating and potting
MasterCast comes in 5 pack sizes so you can buy exactly the right amount for your project. To help you choose the correct kit please see the coverage guide below, then make your selection from the drop down list above. The exact coverage will depend on how thick you want your resin coating and the type of media you are covering.
|CEL Pack Size||Coverage at 0.5 mm thick|
|350g Tester Kit||0.5 m²|
|1.4 kg Kit||2.0 m²|
|2.8 kg Kit||4.0 m²|
|7 kg Kit||10 m²|
|35 kg Kit||50 m²|
Please note this resin has a heat distortion temperature of 45-50°C which makes it unsuitable for the placement of very hot objects on its surface such as cups, mugs, plates etc. We recommend UltraCast xt for excellent temperature resistance.
Differences between MasterCast 1-2-1 and totalCAST
- Mixed viscosity: MasterCast 1-2-1 has a higher mixed viscosity and a thicker consistency
- Curing time: MasterCast 1-2-1 offers a longer working time and a slower cure (6-8hrs @ 20°C)
Both can be used as a clear coating resins over existing artwork made with oil paints, acrylics, enamels, watercolours etc, but Mastercast 1-2-1 is better suited to pigmenting in resin art applications. totalCAST is ideal for pouring in moulds for embedding, potting, encapsulating and jewellery production.

The mixing ratio must be accurately followed to achieve perfect results. It is not possible to change the ratio which would result in the resin not drying properly and lower mechanical properties.
The mixed components should be thoroughly stirred for 3-4 minutes to ensure an even consistency. Epoxy systems tend to heat up faster in a pot than as a thin film, only mix the amount needed for use within the pot life of the product.
The product can be applied by pouring from the mixing vessel, by brush or roller. The mixed resin can be tinted with our resi-TINT pigments, resi-METAL or resi-TINT+ Metallic Powders to make your artwork pop. resi-BLAST will add stunning cells and effects.
