Fully cured epoxy scraps

We all try to avoid wasting epoxy, but it happens to the best of us. Instead of throwing the excess away, reuse it! Fully cured epoxy scraps can be used as photo props and crucibles for treatments. 


Alternatively, if the epoxy scraps are put into the freezer before curing they can be used later for practicing fillings.
