    Once your bag of resin is open how do you store yours.
    Can it go off once its open ?

    I just leave it in the bag and tie it very tightly and fold it over again and tie it tight again .Not sure if it can go off, but i think you want to keep as much air out as possible .

    Of course it will go off. You want it stored in an air tight container and not in the bag. The bag will sweat and create moisture meaning the resin will get wet and actually start to go off.

    I keep mine in empty fence panel stain buckets. Air tight push down lids, works a treat
