Cactus Juice – A Fun and Easy DIY Project
Cactus Juice, also known as Cactus Medley, is a powerful heat-treated resin-based adhesive used to prepare and harden cactus material, especially wood and stone. It comes pre Activate in quart and pint containers and ready for activation with an included activator. The resin is very thick and strong which makes it ideal for binding and reinforcing softwood and cactus material that need extra help when sealing. It is an excellent product to use for small jobs around the house such as painting, sealing and trimming cedar, cork and pine trees.
How to Know About Cactus Juice
This product is available at Lowes and other home improvement stores but you can save money by making your own with fresh resin or applying it with a cactus juice spray bottle and spraying the excess juice directly on the needed area, ensuring there is no excess moisture content. Using a plastic zip lock bag, gently dampen the affected area and spray the excess juice into the zip lock bag before drying slowly. Make sure the area has adequate air flow to avoid the cactus juice drying into the surrounding material; if this is the case, reapply the resin or continue the drying process until there is no more resin left.
To prepare the chamber, place three blanks side-by-side in a standard sized plastic food chamber. Blanks are available in three sizes, six(a full), seven(a half) and ten(a quarter). Place the six blanks on top of the six smallest blanks and the seven blanks on top of the seven smallest blanks. All blanks should be stacked on top of each other and held in place using a corked foil frame with a handle for easy removal.
