By all of you guys posts I now see the sense in measuring in weight , not in volume , it's just logical !

And the two ingredients definately do have different weights , since in my small mixing cups the hardener always swims above the resin(or vice-versa :huh:?) .
I can clearly observe this , when waiting for the stuff to fall level to the cup's marker lines , the catalist has a slighly darker color !

It's just like oil swimming on water !

But for the very small amounts , that I mix for one painting proccess(max . 0,006 litres !) , the error measuring by volume would not be that much in relation to mix larger quantities that way , I guess(ever been poor concerning maths:huh:) ?

And I have made my experiences doing it that way , at first once or twice the finish remained tacky , but now I get it straight time after time :wink:.

Easy way for me to do this is clean out an empty Devcon double tube syringe and pour the etex into it. No measuring just one syringe....quick easy and simple:)

That's a good one I love.
How come I never thought of that :sauced:

Thanks for the tip!
