Does anyone have experience with adding water based liquids to resin? Are there any guidelines to go by if doing so (ie, adding additional hardener or the like)?

In my particular situation, I am adding milk into cast resin beads. I've had a few issues with discoloration (yellowing) of the milk several weeks after they have cured. I wasn't sure if there is anyone else doing anything similar and if anyone has any advise?

Hi Milk and Honey, sorry for the late reply.

As far as I know resins are completely incompatible with moisture. Can I ask why you're adding Milk to the resin?
Oh yeah I can make that....

I too am interested in knowing why milk is used in casting. Their are dyes made for casting though if your looking for colors you should look into those. Alumalite makes dyes. I currently use their black dye to get a grey ending color in my casts, Grey is somewhat industry standard, other colors are oddly looked down upon. I think that trend is lifting though.
