Yes. Some artists prefer to dab their art with a resi-BLAST wetted toothpick.
This may cause pitting if the resi-BLAST is dropped onto the pigmented resin, giving it a more textured appearance, but if the resi-BLAST is added to the pigment before pouring it will remain smooth.
Only add a few drops (2-4) to your coloured resin, mix and then pour - a small amount goes a long way! Some artists even use a toothpick to add to poured resin layer.
If the resi-BLAST is added to the resin mixture, stirred and then poured, it lessens the chance of hollows forming. Remember, the res-BLAST is a medium that pushes the resin away. When added directly to the artwork panel, it works fine, but more likely to form craters, as even a droplet can be large and is very effective. This may add an interesting textural element to your art.
Yes, once the bottom layer has cured. It is important to clean the surface of any resi-BLAST residue with dry, clean cloth or even isopropyl alcohol. Any resi-BLAST left on the layer, may interact and disperse the second coat of resin poured (forming more cells).
Some resin artists have also found it useful to lightly sand the layer before pouring a second layer - this may not be necessary.
