Cactus Juice: The Perfect Tool For Resin Casting

3 min read

Today I’m going to walk you how I stabilize wood and object with Cactus Juice. Also, there seems to be a confusion on when to use a pressure pot and a vacuum chamber. I know other people have put Alumilite, Total Boat, and others into a vacuum chamber. I personally have never done that. I use Alumilite and I put that in a pressure pot. When I need to stabilize the wood or other objects before I cast them in resin, I always use Cactus Juice and a vacuum chamber. The vacuum chamber pulls most of the trapped air out of the wood or object and replaces it with the Cactus Juice. Then once you heat the objects up in an oven, the Cactus Juice hardens. This makes the object as hard as the resin. Once turned, you should not be able to feel the difference in the object and the resin.

I hope you enjoy this video. Please let me know if there is a project you’d like to see me make and I will do my best to do it. Thank you for all the support you have shown me and the channel!

Isaiah 53:4-5 (NIV)
Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
