Does all epoxy resin have a doming effect?

Does all epoxy resin have a doming effect?

I need a doming resin for jewelry making, so I was wondering if any ordinary type of epoxy resin would create a doming effect, or if there is only a specific type that creates that effect. And if so, where can you find it? Thanks!

Are you sure you want to delete this answer?

Doming resin is a specific type of polyester the other type flattens out. It took me quite a while to find a source in the US

These folks are in the UK where most of the sources for the material seem to be:

Most (all?) regular epoxy resins will dome in certain situations…for example if theyre poured on top of a flat surface thats freestanding/elevated so the excess can run off the sides (not brushed on). Thats due to surface tension.

If theyre poured into permanent cells, youd want to start in the center and gradually gently pull the resin toward the sides of the cell like in this video to maintain the dome:

Some of the 3-dimensional permanent white glues (Diamond Glaze and others) will dome a little higher I think and perhaps even do that when its in cells that it wont be removed from. But perhaps it will pull away from the sides a bit (or is that more the polyester resins and acrylic mediums?) But those will need to be coated with something tougher than white glue to avoid later scratching or clouding from humidity (like polyurethane, or even a coat of epoxy).

Depending on which epoxy resin you want, you can find them in craft, hobby and art supply stores, plus hardware and home improvement stores.

P.S. From what I understand the *polyester* resins dont dome like the epoxy resins do, and maybe in fact the opposite. The first link given by the previous answerer in fact goes to an epoxy resin called Colores sold by Rio Grande rather than to a polyester resin (note that youll be on the tab for Epoxy Resins).
