Resin without cloth or mat is a no-no! A good fiberglass composite part has minimum resin to saturate the fabric and a high percentage of glass. General rule of thumb is 3 layers of mat for the type of things you are building. For body parts, use 2 layers of mat, a layer of woven cloth, two more layers of mat and a final layer of cloth. For all parts, squeeze out the excess resin for a stable part. Your curling parts are due to too much resin.
