Mixing & Application
When using the whole kit
Add colour to the hydroflow activator fluid before adding the powder. Add small amounts at a time and mix in stages until you have achieved a lump-free consistency. Immediately pour into your mould and agitate to clear trapped air bubbles.
If it thickens rapidly whilst pouring do not be concerned, simply stir again and it will become as runny as before.
When only using part of the kit
Pour the desired amount of hydroflow activator fluid into your mixing container. Add colour to the hydroflow activator fluid before adding the powder. Add 2.5 times the amount of powder to the fluid activator e.g if you started with 100ml (100g) activator fluid then you should add 250g powder. 2.5 : 1 is the default mixing ratio, but this is not set in stone. You can adapt the ratio with less or more powder to obtain a more runny or thicker consistency to suit the individual application.
Once you have mixed to a creamy consistency you can top up the pigment addition to achieve a stronger colour shade. Immediately pour into your mould and agitate to clear trapped air bubbles. If it thickens rapidly whilst pouring do not be concerned, simply stir again and it will become as runny as before. Allow to harden in 20-40mins. The mould will feel warm, this is normal. De-mould in 1-2 hours.
